Ive always believed that rabbits season should run thru summer due to the impact they can have on gardens. I know quite a few who plug em all summer with pellet rifles just to keep em at bay. Wonder if the PGC ever considered the idea. They can be brutal on young vegetables.
There won't be many around come fall. It happens everywhere each summer just part of the cycle. They really start getting killed off come hunting season by the predators. Hawks are not a major issue this time of the year bc of the cover once it thins out they become a big time issue.
