Vermont hare 2011 Part 2

We made our third northern voyage of the 2011 - 12 season (Second trip to Vermont) this last week. We hunted hare for 3 days in northern vermont.
There wasn't much snow on the ground but the trees were just covered. Made for some spotty running as the dogs knocked all that snow down on top of themselves and the hare tracks.
But we had a blast anyway, taking 17 in three days despite the wall of white.

Our host , Wayne, is a retired railroad engineer who lives a throw back lifestyle.
Guides and traps for a living. Cuts firewood for the house and just lives the dream.

Here are a few pics.

Beavers caught in 1 day

Jimmy caught this hare crossing in front on the dogs

Bill with his Tuesday limit

Sam limited on Wednesday

Best Jimmy and I could do was 2 in day



Been a busy fall 22 days hunting rabbits and hare so far and a full 2 state deer season under my belt.

I might just even hunt PA hare a day or two this year for the first time in about 20 years.

Looks like a great trip John. I'm surprised how much difference there is in the amount of white on some of those hare.

Did Jim take those beaver home for dog feed? lol
