First time rabbit hunter
I took a first time rabbit hunter out Saturday; to an orchard/woodlot farm property.
We found plenty of non game tracks like Housecat,coyote,and opossum.
There were Numerous squirrel tracks ; but scant rabbit sign.Scent was high and wide; probably 80%+humidity.
Both dogs boo hooing like old style brace beagles.
They were behind us being blockheads and not listening worth a _ _ _ _ 😠 too.
As we slowly moved into a heavily brushed area young Justin kicks out a rabbit hidden under a log ; and promptly stops the rabbit with a single shot.
My dogs woulda eventually bumped it out ; but I encourage jump shooting on days like these.
He was just ecstatic over his first rabbit ever !
We head to another power line area close by ; and the dogs jump a rabbit in the grass/briar field.
They track it 3/4 of a circle and it holes up.We Never caught sight of it.
We called it a day and gutted the rabbit (which he's never done) .
New rabbit hunter is hooked for life!
