I’m well impressed with Russel Webb’s articles recently. He’s done really well in getting permissions and I applaud him for that. I know how hard it can be to get one and for years I’ve had no luck at all, but last year I was talking to my wife’s friend who loves her horses. She told me that a horse at her yard had been injured by putting its leg down a rabbit hole, and that the owner had paid a fortune to the vet to get it better.
I offered to help fence off the area that had the most burrows and reduce the numbers after that. It’s now my regular shoot and I’ve had lots of bunnies to eat since then. You never know
