I went out to my hare spot today with high hopes since most of the snow had melted. When I showed up to the pullout where I generally park I see what is clearly the hide and guts from bunnies taken during this winter and just dumped in the snow. Naturally I'm frustrated.
Then as I step out of my truck and head towards the brushy bits, I see a hare with a bullet hole in it. It looks (from what I can tell) that it was shot and tossed towards the bushes... maybe the fella before me hit his bag limit, and didn't want to hall around the extra, or maybe he just didn't feel like skinning it, but being optimistic maybe he shot it, and it ran away, but I've never seen them run too far with a headshot myself. I would've skinned it, and taken it home, but I don't know how long it's been there. It's like finding fries in the floorboard of someone elses car, they're probably safe to eat, but if it's all the same to you I'd rather not put them in my mouth. Naturally I'm frustrated.
Finally after walking around all day I realized I was seeing a lot more people sign than rabbit sign. It's amazing how some folks can take a good thing and make it into a bad thing. The worst part is someone on this forum showed me to this spot, and the folks that live down the road recognize the white Ford I drive, and it makes me feel guilty for even hunting the same spot with the guys who ruined my spot for me. Naturally I'm frustrated.
