    I learned this the hard way. I shot a hare in july (first animal I had ever shot actually) while out walking the trails looking for tracks. I proudly carried it back to camp, made a mess out of cleaning it and I felt pretty lousy when I pulled out 3 fully developed babies. Ugh I don't even like thinking about it. That was the first and last hare for me, I'll stick with the grouse!

      Sometimes the hunting can be really good for these little guys

            If they are big enough to put on a cracker, then they are big enough to eat.

            That is why they are called Low Bush Moose.

                Good write-up Matt. I've been out lookin' for bunnies twice so far, with the same guy. Both times he got one and I didn't.:rolleyes: I don't think I'll take him along anymore.

                The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

                  AKSolider, sounds like you need to go hunting with him more often.

                    Nah, he just got lucky. Of course, it could have something to do with the fact that both times he was carrying a shotgun and I was carying a .22 and both bunnies he got were on the move. I'd rather sneak up on 'em and shoot them with a rimfire anyhow.

                        Thanks for draggin this one up! I was just thinking of getting the old fat beagle out in the woods this weekend. I got a hunch it should be good. Not to mention grouse can probably still be had as a bonus. Plus I still need to take those pics to go along with this thread.

                            This was a good one to dig back up. I've put lots of bunny meat on the table since this thread started. Matt was right! time of year and location are the two biggest variables in success in my experience. Recent weather also makes a big difference. I just started two weeks of leave, and I'm going to see if I can put my son on some bunnies. :topjob:
