Nevertheless, he describes the firearm as “the ideal rifle for pest control,” and how true that was.
The video starts with Neil spotting rabbits with the help of a person named farmer Phil. Throughout the clip, he would tell Neil where the bucks are and what to aim. For the next minutes, we see the clean shots he made, effectively exterminating the vermin with a single slug. Although Neil didn’t make much headshots — he says he only does that when the game meat will be for the table — he did his work rapidly and with great success.[/cs_text][x_line style=”border-top-width: 1px;”][x_image type=”none” src=”http://www.hunting.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/CZ-452-Special.jpg” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][cs_text]Read More about the CZ 452 Special[/cs_text][x_line style=”border-top-width: 1px;”][cs_text]There was one, however, in the 1:27 mark wherein he misses his target. It had the opportunity to escape after hearing the first shot. Viewers didn’t get to see if Neil catches sight of it again and tries to take it down.
From the 0:49 mark down to the end, the video frames were taken using the scope’s camera and the audience gets to see how Neil locks down his target into the crosshair. This actually serves as a good guide to rabbit hunting, as shooters would know which part to aim at for the kill. Scenes get a bit shaky sometimes, especially when he pulls the rifle’s action, and the loud hum of the tractor can be heard at the middle part, but they’re negligible. In fact, they somehow add to the rawness and reality of the whole video.
For hunters and gun enthusiasts, Neil’s video is quite entertaining. Remarkable quick shots and clean kills, plus farmer Phils off-cam commentaries, makes this one to watch when into rabbit hunting.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
