Our whippets have been doing their bit too!Smile This was the second one that thought it could out run them! Silly thing was there was a perfectly good tree next to it but it decided to run for it instead!

Why tell us, are your tying to prove to yourself you are some sort of big white hunter, the kind that used to shot lions in the olden days.

I know people who shoot squirrels most days, they do not feel the need to brag about it.

I think he was merely curious how people would react as I was in another post where I admitted trapping greys.

There is such a variety of people on here that this could have become an interesting debate on the ethics of releasing alien species and whether to control them once released. Barry has taken it as being a "personal boast" which I don't think it was intended to be

Never understood why people kill things but refuse to eat them, bit of a waste. Cooked properly they taste great.
Why turn your nose up at free food?

Reads completely completely like a boast to me and I really think this really is an inappropriate thread especially when there are members on here who enjoy wildlife photography, why not post it on a hunting forum so you can be properly laughed at on there??

There's nothing wrong with hunting if you eat what you kill (many years ago i used to shoot before you say anything but used to eat or sell the game i'd shot) and this can hardly be classed as "controlling alien species" and as for scutters need to post pictures of his kills, well done you, clearly you are both very big and brave men who should be revered for your masculinity and strength and when the apocalypse comes will save the day with your air rifles LOL. I'd expect something like this from two teenagers, get a life BOYS!
