Serious rabbit hunting


School has finished for the year which means James is found working away in the barn making .......
a cross bow to go rabbit hunting...




Some male bonding has been going on in the evenings with the blokes watching The Walking Dead.
No doubt the crossbow was initiated from the tv show.

  1. James ,from guitars to cross bows, you are very versatile with your manufacturing, for want of a better word. Hope the rabbits scuttle quickly!!! You can see that I am a true pacifist at heart. Cheers, Jean.

    1. James suggested I reiki the rabbits into one area - to help him...I am amazed at the properties around us just how many bunny holes there are. Very dangerous for live stock. I'll take my camera next time I walk the paddocks.

    1. The TV show does seem scary from the little I've seen - I pop off to bed and leave them to it.

  4. I don't want to be a wowser but I think there may be some regulations about cross bows and hunting with them.....might be worth a quick check just in case......

  5. Bow hunting minimum criteria
    Minimum drawing weight factor 18kg
    Minimum diameter of two opposing blades is 25mm
    Minimum diameter of multi-bladed head is 22mm
    Minimum length of complete arrow is 690mm
    Minimum weight of complete arrow is 32g
    Only non-barbed hunting arrows are permissible
    Arrows with any poison, explosive or other chemical substance on or in the head or shaft are not permitted.

    When finished it will be well over and above the minimum power, weight ratings

    1. Doesn't seem long ago he was making bows and arrows a lot better for this mothers heart. Just as well he has a dad or he would be wrapped up in cotton wool.
