Today I got to enjoy the 20th straight year of The Purnell Brother's(& Son's now) Annual Rabbit Hunt. The 5 of us have been blessed with another year to get together and enjoy our tradition. This was our best year by far. We had rabbits running all day long, the hounds logged almost 20 miles and 98% of it was full blast running. We didn't go 5 minutes between rabbits and I have never heard the amount of shooting we got today, we ended up shooting 10 bunnies and 2 pheasants. I didn't get any pics of Calvin and Ziggy but I am sure they don't care. Every one had to leave by noon but Steve and myself, and we hammered away. Only our game made the end of day tailgate picture...
