Rabbit skin/fur SWPA

Anyone in SWPA have a few rabbit furs they can be rid of? I'm training some new pups and ran out of furs to mock drag. Allegheny, Beaver, Washington Co. Preferably. Thanks in advance.

Those pups are only like 10 weeks old, don't worry about dragging a fur around. Wait till they are older and show them a real live rabbit.

Re: Rabbit skin/fur SWPA

I freeze them and use them as chew toys until they reach 3mo old. Then I begin mock drags, both visual and scent only. I start live runs at 4mo old with beagles that already hunt. By 6mo they are ready to go it alone. If they don't jump, I reintroduce the hunting beagles for another month.

Turns out some real aggressive hunters with no quit in them.
