    Default Where are some bunnies?

    Son #2 is in the Wasilla area for a bit and was hoping to find a place to chase a few bunnies. Anyone willing to share some areas for him to check out?

    thanks

    In that case shouldn't it be Snowshoe Hare Slough?
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    been awfully lean around the main mat-su area compared to a few years ago. Heading an hour or two up the glenn highway would be a lot more fruitful if he has that capability. Not that getting out and tromping around is ever a bad idea, but if I wanted a chance to pull the trigger on hares, I'd make the drive.

    Default Where are some Bunnies..

    with the cycle down around a large portion of the state... his best luck at seeing "bunnies", would be at the local magazine stand

    I was just out today with a friend looking for Bugs, we trampled Pt Mac, Burma Rd area. The results were 2 Spruce Hens in the bag.
    My pastor went on thet drive about an hour or so up the Glenn and their 3 person party returned with 6 bunnnies.
    Next Saturday I'll be heading up the highway.

    I saw a bunch along Jonesville Road in Sutton last week. They stuck out like a sore thumb since they were all Black.

    If you saw some black rabbits in the middle of November, they weren't snowshoe hares. Maybe someone's lost domestic rabbit or something. Snowshoe Hares turn white around the middle of October.

    Those domestic / feral ones are just as tasty tho.

    I know they were not snowshoe hares. The title was "Where are some Bunnies" ? Jonesville Road is full of Bunnies, not Hares. LOL I've been tempted to knock off a few over the years. White Meat! Use to raise them many moons ago. Tasty
