I was hoping people might be able to chip in and help me up my success rate for snowshoe hares. I'm beginning to feel a bit like Elmer Fudd. I've tried a bunch of different places, some with a lot of hunting pressure some with little or none. Same result - mostly going home empty handed. I've tried crashing through the thick stuff hoping to flush bunnies; I've tried sneaking along slowly and quietly. What are other people doing? Should I be looking close or 30-40 yards out?
Crashing the brush worked yesterday worked to some degree but I rarely was able to get a shot off because it was so thick. Should I be confining my hunting to more open areas where I'll have a better shot even if it means seeing less? Right now I'm mostly hunting alone and without a dog. I'm figuring it's one of those things that once I figure out what to do and exercise a little patience I'll get the knack eventually. Right now I'm trying to do a little of everything. I've read the other posts that were similar to this but was hoping that people might be willing to add some additional info.
