As a boy of sixteen, Max and his mate used to go out all night long spot lighting. Max would drive, unlicensed, as he knew the land, its holes and stumps, and his mate stood up in the back of the ute with a shot gun. They could shoot about 220 rabbits a night. If they ran out of petrol, they could drive into Langdon’s garage at night, where there was a self serve petrol pump which took 2 shilling pieces. They would deliver their bounty to Keith Kane the black smith, the next day. He was located next to Hunt and Lobbs garage on the main road at the back of the tennis courts. He kept a chiller down the back and gave them 5 shillings a pair of rabbits.
