    Map your perms and mark distances to places you see quarry from.

    I have a Note 8 so I can take pics and annotate the distances from one point to another.

    Another good app is what3words.... accurate to a 3m x 3m square.

    There is no real need for a big shot count if you're hunting. If I ever started hunting again I would be looking at a multi-shot Ultra or an S200 and get a multi shot adapter for it.
    If you need more shots (I'm presuming you're travelling to your permission by car) I would suggest taking a bottle with you and returning to your car for a top up but an Ultra will drop 30 rabbits from 1 fill which will weigh a lot more than a heavy gun.
    Good luck with your search.

    Get an Ultra regulated and you'll get far more shots.

    My .177 Ultra is Tench Regged, and gives around a hundred shots from a 250 bar fill.

    If being used for hunting I would have thought 30 shots would be plenty for a hunting session. I know people who are more than happy with the factory Ultra for this purpose.

    I'm happy with my standard Ultra Gary. My SE in .22, gets 50 very consistent shots. Never shot more than about 10 rabbits in one hunting trip in 32 years of hunting. Pigeons is a different matter, but still if you get anywhere near 30 ish with an air rifle, your doing bloody well. Woodies that is, ferals is a different matter.

    If you're quite new to hunting a good way to get a feel for it is view the quarry through the uncocked rifle and take a mock shot, I know it sounds daft and doesn't put anything in the bag but the jump from targets to rabbits and the nerves can kick in,
    Even if you don't feel jumpy it takes the pressure off, you get time to think about it, when you pull the trigger you know if you were on it.
    Then start cocking the rifle,
    A quid at 60yards is good shooting (and a long way!) So you obviously have the eye for it, it worked for me.
    Stick with it bud happy hunting Martin

    See post 12. Hitting targets but not quarry. 69 yard shots is going beyond.

    I agree with you there Steyr,
    I didn't mean to imply in my post shots at that range were acceptable at quarry
    Just wanted to offer some encouragement to someone that's starting out.

    I hope you're keeping well Dave.
    It was you I was referring to, I know you really rate them.
    When I used to go to Rochdale Airgun Club they had a couple of Ultras in .177 which they used to hire out and they were super accurate. From memory I thought they gave around 30 shots from a fill.
