We return to the stunning Staffordshire countryside for another airgun adventure. It’s time for some woodland pest control with the Air Arms S510 Ultimate Sporter.
On the last episode we followed Air Arms new ambassador, Richard Leonard on an epic airgunning adventure deep in the South African bush. Today, it’s Eddie Jones turn to head out on a pest control-shooting outing using the Air Arms S510 Ultimate Sporter.
Eddie has already experienced success here in the past with young shooter, Andy Watkins. During their previous outing Eddie and Andy were able to clear out several pests including squirrels and rabbits. The main priority for this airgun shooting session is to remove as many squirrels from the farm area as possible.
It doesn’t take Eddie long to spot squirrels within the trees. After some amazing shots, he is able to take down many that inhabit the woodland.
While Eddie is searching the woodland for signs of any pests, he spots a pigeon nested up in a tree. Eddie is an ethical airgun hunter and decides that the pigeon isn’t causing any damage in its current position. Wildlife management is a vital undertaking for any forest area such as this; each opportunity needs to be carefully considered before any shot is taken.
Fully adjustable cheek piece and butt-pad, waterproof, smooth side lever action and laminate stock. The Air Arms S510 Ultimate Sporter is the ideal air rifle for pest control shooting.
Continuing his exploration of the land, Eddie comes across a rabbit that has Myxomatosis, which is a deadly disease for the species. Myxomatosis can cause a rabbit great pain, it is critical to not only remove any rabbits that suffer from this disease, but to also end any suffering it creates.
As the day reaches its end, Eddie has been incredibly successful in his task of removing a number of squirrels and also a few rabbits. Although Eddie has been able to remove a number of squirrels, he has identified a potential risk to other animals such as rabbits.
Next time on Air Arms TV, we’re back in South Africa with Richard Leonard on a springhare hunt at night.
