Timberdoodle make the long drive down to my house again this year to look for the elusive brown hoppers. We were joined by jpr and young Brady.
Heading into cover, take note of Timberdoodles weapon of choice for this hunt
The hounds looking for a hot scent
One of jpr's dogs tangled with a killer rabbit but survived
There were yote hunters in the area today tracking their hounds, looking for a winning dog for the local coyote hunt. We could hear the truck struggle to get thru this mud hole.
Brady with the only kill of the day.
It was a perfect day to hunt bunnies, we had quite a few long chases, one going well over 200 yards where we watched the dogs take a rabbit up an old strip mine highwall and back down before it holed up half way back to us.
Looks like a fun day. This time of year you can get some really long chases. We had one yesterday that took the dogs out of hearing range and we had to move up to the dogs. We got it and it was a big male.
