    how was it dan? i got out on the flats but the snow crust killed me, forgot my Sshoes, picked up one quick and jumped two quiet a ways out, lots of noise. i think someone ran a dog thru there recently, you can always tell when a dog goes thru, the rabbits get different than usual.
    good luck

    There's plenty around fairbanks if you stick to the willows, a pair of snowshoes and a 22= heaven ;0)~

    Well i went out on thursday and I saw 3 but only got 1 rabbit.It was tough going with the snowshoes,but I had a good time.Nice to be out,the weather was warm.But the sun was killer on the eyes from the glare coming off the snow.I wished i had more hunters with me to get the bunnies moving.My son had to work and so did my brother,so i solo hunted.Thank God I had my .22 magnum for its stopping power.LOL..Or that rabbit would have had me.I only do head shots so it makes a lil more challenging ,waiting for them to stop for a sec .I like the ones that are sitting there sunning themselves,,Easy Pickens....

    Dan...what grain of bullet did you use for them? 36? Were they reloads or Barnes or what? I dont want to be out there alone and not have enough stopping power either

    Talking Killer Wabbits, Caution Graphic Photo!!!

    These 3 were in the Fairbanks Outback Gang, they jumped me and my hunting buddy while we were trying to call in a few predators. They almost got us, but were able to shut them down with some fancy gun work. They will now be boiled in oil, then into the gravy and be served over some white rice. The wife said rabbits are for petting not for eating. I guess she will be have a PBJ. LOL
