We hunted yesterday morning for the youth rabbit hunt. I took my two younger cousin, and my older cousin anthony came along with his two dogs blossum, and timber. I took Lexy, Abby, and Holly.
My cousin's Andrew and Nick were the shooters and they sure did a good job. This is the begining of andrews second rabbit season with me, and nicks first year to hunt. We started out and the dogs had a rabbit up in 5 mins and it was non stop running from than on. We made them wait until the dogs circled the rabbit once before they shot. They ended up with 2 rabbits each after about an hour. And there was even some they didn't get shooting at either because they holed or didn't present a safe shot. After about 2 hours I decided to call it quits for that spot and we headed back to there house to get the dogs some water and clean the rabbits.
Here is Nick with his two rabbits in the tree.
Here we are.
After getting the rabbits cleaned up we headed back out to another spot. We ran 3 nick missed 1, andrew shot 1, and the last one we just let the dogs run because we figured we had enough to eat and wanted to make a good example with the kids that they didn't have to kill everyone that the dogs chased. They really enjoyed watching the last chase unfold. After that it was to hot and we headed back to there house again and found out my aunt was making the rabbits from earlier. I'm not sure what the recipe was but it was some of the best rabbit i've ever eatin, and we ended up eating all of it.
