Rabbits and foxes damage crops, kill farm animals and generally wreak havoc on the countryside.
Their vast numbers mean they make for a popular and inexpensive sport, whilst at the same time
helping with their management and control.
In Britain we class pigeons, rabbits, corvids, rats and foxes as vermin and pests. There are no
restricted seasons for these animals so we are able to arrange shoots all year round for individuals
Rabbits are plentiful on particular estates and in some hilly regions it’s not unusual to see 20 or 30
running around at one time, providing great field sport for those who prefer a quick paced shoot.
They are the perfect quarry for air rifles, shot guns or .17 HMR rifles.
Lamping is also available for rabbits, rats and foxes. A night time sport, lamping involves shining
high powered lamps into the dark to spot that glint in an animal’s eye and identify a target. We
also have night-vision vermin shooting evenings and fox culling afternoons & evenings.
