Who went for bunnies today?
I took my three pups out for a few hours this morning. We only had three rabbits up, but we killed two of them and every one of the chases was quality work by the dogs. A good part of why we didn't put more bunnies up is that the chases lasted so long. The first and second chase both easily lasted 45 minutes. The third chase was pretty short, but still a great chase by the dogs. The second rabbit circled at least four times before it finally showed up in front of the gun. My dogs had a truly excellent morning. At first it seemed to be hard for them to keep the scent, but after a few minutes into the first chase they were off to the races. Only one more weekend to put rabbits in the freezer! Looking forward to hearing some other stories about the morning.
A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!
