The 7-minute long video was uploaded by irishpigeonshooters and shows a group hunting rabbits in May. In particular, the hunter’s weapon of choice was the CZ 452 .22 Long was always visible.




The video started with the lead hunter setting up his rifle, and then walking to his hunting spot. Here, the first rabbit came out 50 yards from the shooter’s post. He fired once but the shot was deflected by a rock. The next shot though, was spot on and got the rabbit even behind the cover of a pile of rocks and bushes.

The next shot was done at 60 yards, in another part of the field this time, after the hunter had a mishap with the camcorder that was mounted on top of the rifle scope. Good thing it kept recording, because the next shots were of the rabbit getting easily shot.

In the succeeding part of the video, the hunter started shooting from farther away, first at 90 yards and from behind some tall vegetation. You can tell right away how hard the rabbit was shot because it just flew into the air. The next was at 80 yards, but in an open field. This time they had to lure the rabbits out by making call sounds. After a few minutes, the rabbit was killed via a headshot.

What is good about this video is the multiple angles they had, which showed both the shooter’s position and the target’s position. There was also a wide angle shot, probably from the companion, showing the setting and relative position of the hunter to the prey.

The rifle was also set up on a tripod, which meant a more steady, level shot even on a flat surface, where the shooter cannot prop the rifle against anything. It is noticeable how quiet the hunter was when treading closer to his target, and also making sure that when talking to his companion he was whispering or gesturing with his hands.

It is also evident that the hunters were experienced and serious about hunting rabbits, because they came well equipped and in camouflage attire.
