Any of yall avid rabbit hunters? Dogs? Seasons pretty much over with down here but just picked up another beagle the other day and got me wonderin if anyone else hunts? I now have 5 dogs. Summer, Autumn, Winter, Hutch, and now Cooper. Pretty original names huh. Summer by far has been the best dog i've ever owned. She can track down anything from rabbits to deer to pigs. Lots of work and time into that dog

I used to go out after a good snow and scare'm out of a limb pile. Never used a dog or beer. Does getting them drunk 1st make it easier on you or the rabbits?LOL

The most fun way I've hunted rabbits would probably get you arrested today. One of my friends had a 46 Chevy pickup. It's headlights were on top of the fender and provided some seating support. We would cruise the country dirt roads at night with a person on each front fender armed with an automatic 22. It is surprising how hard it is to hit a hopping rabbit while bouncing around on the fender of an old truck. But it was a lot of fun.

I'm an avid rabbit hunter and have bred and trained beagles. Small game is my most favorite type of hunting over deer and such. It's just something about being out with a bunch of friends and a couple dogs hunting all day. In all honesty i sometimes don't even shoot the rabbits just to get the joy out of watching the dogs chase them. I have seen rabbits pull many tricks over the years to try to get dogs off their trails. It's pretty interesting and exciting to watch.

btw i usually just use an old Mossberg 20 gauge youth model. Small and light, can carry it all day long and darn accurate. Plus i don't bust up the meat too bad it i get off a bad shot.

Dammit, I have done the same thing, a lot. Leave the house about an hour after sundown, ride around in the pastures, come back with dinner for tomorrow.

And for anyone that says they would never eat a rabbit, I bet I could put it down on a plate in front of you. You could pick up a piece and set it on top of your head. Your tongue would slap both of your eyes plumb black trying to reach it.
