Beat the storm for a good rabbit hunt

Got up bright and early to try and beat the storm and get some hunting in.
Todo got to the house bright and early and we were at Buddy's house before 8.

Got over to the spot and hit the brush. At first the rabbits came a little slow but there were tracks everywhere. So we pushed deeper in and we got into them really good.
The dogs ran a bit spotty at times especially when they would drive a bunny down to the swampy areas. but they kept at it and just about crawled when they had to and hammered when they could.
Overall they did a great job, Hunted and handled like old pros and we had our limits by about 1 PM. just as the flakes began to fall.

Nasty out there as I type this now. Good to be home.

Glad to see you back at it Todd. It's been a while.


Good to see you smile Buddy. We are there for you champ.

Not sure on the shed.
It wasn't chewed at all but was stained and had a tint of green on the bottom.

Re: Beat the storm for a good rabbit hunt

Good to be back out John. The kidos are only young once and I don't want to miss any games. Hunting with good friends and good dogs comes a close second though. I am glad we could get out with Buddy after a tough couple weeks. Dogs were awesome, and I guess you weren't too bad either for an old fart.
