Iíd think now that you have the experience under your belt & with the warm weather, you should have no problem beating 37. Not to mention their numbers are growing.  🦎

I started counting when I bought the Taipan, but before that I had a lot of them with the springers.. I was not counting but I think I got more with the springers than with the Taipan. They were so used to be on the property that I could get a couple with my bare hands, less than 10 feet and will stay no problem. Just after I start trimming them with the Diana and the TX is when started to keep the distance, and it's when the Taipan enters in the scene. I think last year in total I got more than 100. I can only imagine in what *(&^ I'll be living today if I didn't decide to buy my airguns

Good shooting, the impacts looked awesome and those iguanas went down hard. They look to be tough critters, you made it look easy.

Hi Buddy,

This thing can grow big, specially the males. Measuring the tale they can reach 6ft. I donít have big ones around because Iíve been taming the population but Iíve seen big ones nearby

Hi Luis,

Thanks for the kind words. Itís not me, itís the Taipan, this rifle is the best thing I did to keep the iguanas at bay.

Harry you need a brain shot or a spine shot, in this video Im using both. For a brain shot you need to aim behind the eye, see the first iguana, maybe itís a bit hard to see the crosshair because that iguana was super close.

On the second iguana I did a neck shot, that will impact the spine and shootdown everything behind the shot, the iguana might move a bit with these type of shots because it take a few seconds for these cold blooded animals to expire, once I beheaded one with a machete and it keep blinking after a few minutes, this being said, the best shot is behind the eye, with that is just DRT. Thanks for asking, this is a great topic, took me a while to find out the exact point.

Thanks.  I saw what I thought was the neck shot on the 2nd one, but I wasn't sure if you were using 1 of the other mil-dots to shoot the brain.
