Geez

That's not a varmint, that's a rabbit. They are good to eat. At least you got the bullet placement right. Nice shot

Re: First Varmint

In some places rabbits are varmint. When they are at the top of their cycle and the preditors can't keep up they become varmint. When I was about 15 we had an explosion in the rabbit population and when out hunting you could shoot one every 5 min. hour after hour.

Guys,
We dont have Chucks, P/dogs etc, in Britain so rabbits are our varmints. Certain parts hold huge ammounts of rabbits and great sport can be had although long range is not usually an option.
