    Default Jackal.

    I found this young bitch while putting out salt licks this morning. Bit of overkill, shot with 9.3x62 at less than 100m.

    Really nice photo.

    Having to thank you for your photos so often, it would be nice if we had a 'like' option.

    I did not think Jackal would be shot on site in the reserve?

    TStone, when you go out, how do you decide which rifle to take with?

    We have had a serious jackal problem for the past year, we lost a lot of springbok lambs, so we actively hunt them. The idea is not to wipe them out (which will be impossible here anyway) but to reduce numbers.

    When I go hunting I currently take either the 6.5 Creedmoor or the 9.3x62, depending on the area I plan to hunt. When doing other work, I normally take the 9.3x62, it works on anything as long as the range is not further than 300m and is easier to carry.

    9.3 probably didn't do much damage to the pelt, looks like a nice specimen to get tanned and make a warm matjie next to the bed on cold mornings!

    Start a new fashion trend and make covid masks. Should be a hit with traditional people and you could finance your shooting activities. Or perhaps not. The Greenies will launch swarm media attacks witch will not be good for your business
