“ROOIKAT EN MURPHY!”

 

MURPHY’S LAW AND A GOOD EVENING OF NIGHT VISION!

Well this was indeed fun, a good friend and I decided to get out and test new Night Vision equipment, we had Lunar Binoculars 5 power, new night vision rifle scopes, monovisions, and a few other varieties of expensive stuff to test and see what we will use in 2010, stuff changes so we must keep with the times.

We went to a farm that has given me many cats over the past years; I have hunted it from 2001. We made a stand off the road 120m from the point of a crossroad, and all around us open fields, except for cover and trees dead ahead.

We never had a rifle as we never planned on hunting, and just opened the back of the bakkie, and waited for nightfall and the darkest of skies, it was pitch black so we begun, and tested all new models and other exciting models including a new laser device that extends NV even much further than normal. (This we now ALWAYS will use).

After about 3 hours of testing what each unit can do, I said to Daniel, well we need to test it on a bat eared fox as they are plenty here, and when you call them they stand for a long time offering a lot of time to look at live animals and take photos or just observe with night vision models, they offer you a lot of time to look and observe and test NV equipment on so it is a good animal to practise on generally.

So we each picked up a set of NV equipment and stood at the back of the bakkie, the night was pitch dark, ( December 12th -2009) , so at 9.40 I put a new call in my mouth, I had just finished putting it together last week actually, a new model.

I called catty style with it, an open reeded style, and both of us scanned with NV, after 20 minutes I picked up eyes at 120m looking from the tree line area, then it walked towards us, at about 100m I turned on the Infra Red Laser and centred the spot on the animal, I could see the lynx easily, it came closer and at 21m it stopped dead for the first time, it turned and looked left and right, and Daniel and I could not believe that here sits a very prime lynx, 21m from us, and we had no rifle. We had no choice but to kill it with some very choice words until it got tired of this rabbit and moved off.

I have called many cats in my time with hand calls, and this was the first one I called without a rifle, next time we will have a gun!

Anyway, we will get him next time! But that’s Murphy’s Law!

Interesting again on this hunt, the cat was called in windy conditions, I have called the majority of my cats with a wind blowing, and again proving cats cant smell you, this one had a breeze blowing in his face for over 120m for over 10 minutes and still he came and looked in our direction.

BUT because you use Night Vision they come real close and are not troubled by any lights.

Night Vision RULES!!!!

Pussy cat won this round!
