Watch Terry Doe and Dave Barham on this thermal rabbit shooting video; will the rifle, scope and pellet combos be up to the job?

In this new series on Shooting & Country TV, airgun legends Terry Doe and Dave Barham (editors of Airgun World and Airgunner magazines) will be hunting a range of quarry with air rifles, night vision and thermal spotters and scopes. From rabbits to squirrels, pigeons and rats, this six month series will cover all quarry you can hunt with an air rifle.

Episode one sees them rabbit hunting with thermal scopes on a livery yard where the holes the rabbits are digging are creating a serious hazard for the horses that live there. Terry and Dave are on a mission to test how simple and effective their scope, rifle and pellet combos are. Find out how they got on and tune in next month for episode 2!
