How they hunt rabbit over there.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

They used to use ferrets in PA, one of the European methods that came here with immigration. That is why for decades even the mere possession of a ferret was illegal in this state.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Wow looks like fun. I do not know if they are rabbits or some type of hare. It looks like they live in colonies like prarie dogs. A lot in a small area. And not heavy brushy areas like our rabbits do well in, over here. Maybe they do not have the predator problems like we do here, to have such concentrated numbers of rabbits in rather open areas. Of course out in the wide open like that, ground predators may have a hard time sneaking up on them.

They are hares, they live in warrens.

If that type of predator control works that well over there, I would imagine we could use some of that management here. With such little cover and all those hare, somebody is doing something right.

The European gentleman have mastered the art of hunting with the most limited physical exertion haha. All they do is stand in one place and shoot.

Eurasian rabbits and hares live in den systems underground called warrens.

A little different than how rabbits and hares live in PA
