i thought of this topic after reading the thread on Best rifles for Feline menace . The title start had me think of our cats. Do we consider spotlighting as hunting? I’m a shooter hunter. If I walk the creek looking for pigs I guess it’s hunting but my mate is a Keen deer hunter and hunts on foot in the more common snes of hunting I guess. But he still spotlights getting. Feed of rabbits, we have spotlighted together to shoot foxes And got some pigs opportunistically. I’ve shot a handful of cats maybe a couple of handfuls over 30 years. I get a sense of satisfaction taking a cat from the bush. Many shooters I’ve shot with or discussed shooting with hate cats with a passion (In the bush) Many get great satisfaction shooting a cat in the bush. Actually I’ve seen grown men get excited after shooting a feral cat, not just their first one. Anyone care to come in on shooting cats? I’ve shot them with a .22, ,223 and .308 and probably with .222 my first centrefire. I’m looking forward to taking one with my .22-250 as it is now used a little for spotlighting. I reckon my mate has taken a few with his beloved .220 swift being a rifle he has had a long time and was varminting a bit a bit in his younger days before getting a start deer hunting at 48 I think he said.
