Rabbit spots on game lands?

Looking for some spots to hunt rabbits. Anyone know of spots near Elmhurst, Moscow area? I will travel if I have to but Id like to find somewhere closer. Just lost a spot in Nicholson that was heaven and need to find somewhere else.

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Rabbit spots on game lands?

Most sgl on my side of the state have rabbits in varying degrees.

If you don't have a dog, wait for a fresh snow and hunt good cover. It won't take long to find out if there is a good population.

If you ever end up over this way, I would be happy to help you find a couple.

Good luck.

Re: Rabbit spots on game lands?

I tend to lean toward private farms and the thick rows of multiflora between crop fields. Take a drive during the summer months and ask some farmers in your area. Most are eager to be rid of the vermin

My aspirations are simple.

Not tryin to be a jerk, but didn't you say in your other post that you didn't have any dogs available to run them?

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

Driving around looking for cover on gamelands and than hunting it seems to work the best for me.
