In this video I answer the question, how do you hunt predators with an air rifle? I journey back down to West Texas to hunt with my buddy Chacho, and plan to pursue javalina during the day and call predators at night. The requirement for my hunting rifle on these outings is that it’s pinpoint accurate, powerful, flat shooting, and reliable… and (spoiler alert) the FX Crown exceeded expectations. My rifle has a synthetic stock with a camo finish by Utah Airguns, and is absolutely beautiful! The Crown is a multi-caliber platform, and mine is equipped with a .25 caliber, .30 caliber, and an arrow barrel For this hunt I opted for the .30 caliber, shooting JSB 44.75 gr Exact Diabolo roundnose pellets. We called in a number of fox, of which I shot two, and a couple of marauding raccoons by the feeders. A big bobcat came in that Chacho could see, but which was hidden behind a bush from my perspective. I will have more night time hunts coming up, with a variety of lights and night vision gear, but this first hunt we went old school using a red filtered spotlight.
