Hello all,

Looking to scout out out some good places to hunt rabbits with my beagle this year. I live in east pittsburgh and work in the North hills. Can anyone recomend a good spot?

I haven't hunted there, but people say the gamelands in Wexford off 79 are good for all kinds of smallgame.

How good is your dog? I have a camp about an hour north of Pittsburgh where we have a small game tournament every year. A lot of bunnies up that way...

Re: Rabbit hunting with Beagle near pittsburgh

In the last 10 years I regularly hunted rabbits in Jefferson Hills/Clairton Area religously. Actually best rabbit hunting there was. Within walking distance of US Steel Clairton Works. Rabbits tasted like Coke Oven Gas, but there was tons of them. Also try any of the farms in Forward Twp. Most will let you hunt if you ask. In fact most are enrolled in the game co-op program. A few days of scouting on these farms and you will be into them.

I checked the game lands out last evening. Looks good for squirrles and bow hunting for deer. I was near the shooting range and it sounded like a war zone wich kind of turned me off. That said I'll prob. take the .22 and go for squirrles and stomp around there a bit more to see if I'd bring my dog there rabbits.

Re: Rabbit hunting with Beagle near pittsburgh

I've been hunting the Wexford gamelands for years and I honestly have seen very few rabbits. Squirrels? Thousands of them - EVERYWHERE!! Good luck!

Patehrin24 - My hound is just a pup and I am just getting him started. He comes from good bloodlines and I have high hopes for him. I haven't had much luch getting Rabbitts in front of him, but I don't think it will take much to get him going.

MFK32 I live in New Kensington, PA I would recommend joining a local beagle club good safe place with lots of rabbits to get your pup started. There are a lot of of them in our area. Puketos is probably the closest to you. It is only about 5 minutes from my house.
