That's my game as well.
I'm a walking varmint hunter and shoot off harris bipods.
My rules as follows:
#1 I load a round only when I'm fully prepared to kill something with a responsible shot
#2 I hunt for one game at a time, I will not affect others
#3 If within 400yds, it's a headshot only
#4 If I miss, that animal lives another day
#5 Unless I pick up the carcass, it doesn't count as a kill
#6 Rule #2 is dropped if I run across some jackass in the field shooting at game from a benchrest, under an umbrella, and sipping a martini(shaken -not stirred)
