Tame Rabbits ???
Was checking out some new territory for Flintlock and had an odd sighting. I was back in the woods quite a ways and came upon a large stand of pine trees. As I was walking a road that went through the middle of the pines a large white looking rabbit hopped across in front of me about 20 yds ahead. It was a good bit larger than a cottontail and not pure white, but almost. As I was standing there, thinking about what I just saw, another rabbit crossed right where that one did. So I moved up slowly to try and get a closer look at them. I never saw them again, but on the side of the pines where those two came from I looked over and saw another one sitting at the base of a big pine. That makes 3 and I am barely into the pines 75 yds.
I was thinking that maybe they were tame rabbits that had escaped their pens or that maybe someone had released them. But I was pretty far back in the woods and there are no houses around so I don't know about that.
I wonder if it is legal to release tame rabbits into the wild? Can a person shoot tame rabbits found running loose in the woods? I've never seen anything like that before. I am planning to go back again and spend a little more time in that area and see if I can spot any more of them.
