    Monkyshine is in Puerto Rico with me hunting this weekend. He shot more than 20 iguanas today. FX bobcat MK1 is a killing machine. He shot an iguana at 83 yards with JSB mk2 heavies today. Pictures to follow tomorrow as we head out for day two.

    Thanks guys…pictures will be up tomorrow. Monkyshine has some great pics of the monsters he shot today. The grass was tall so not all could be recovered but we found several after they hit the ground (some breaking branches on their way down).
    Oakhonor..sorry, but no video equipment. Wouldn’t know what to even purchase.

    This is what a JSB 25 cal 34 grain at 818 fps does at an iguana at 15 yards. Nice shot Monkyshine!!!!!!

    Guys I had to take a job in Tampa, Florida, but I’m heading back to the Virgin Islands this week for good.   I’m so ready for my Verminator MKII aka Jazmine to taste some Iguana blood.  I can’t shoot the ones on St Thomas but I’m one 30 min flight from San Juan and Jazmine is ready.

    More pictures of my great trip guided by Puerto Rico. His father and friends are most hospitable, could not meet a nicer bunch. Great hunting and lots to eat.

    Thanks Rami939. Unfortunately I forgot my tape measure to measure them. Some were in the 5 foot range. Unfortunately I didn’t get monkyshine a monster 6 footer, but I believe he had fun. Conservatively we shot 70 in 2 days. Monkyshine is a great shot!!!

    Monkeyshine, tell us how you got your rifles down there.

    Shipped with me on airline. Needs hard case with lock. Let off pressure, no pellets in gun case. Call it a firearm because your gun will scare them to death anyway. They have not a clue about a PCP. You was supposed to come with me as I remember? These guys here in Puerto Rico are a great bunch.

    PS: I would like to claim the rifle stash but the BC is mine the rest are Puerto Rico’s and company.

    I need to also add that puertorico cooks up some fine iguana! I hate to leave his friendly warm island.
