Bunnies in the snow

Got back after the bunnies today for the first time since deer season. I was surprised how deep the snow was up on the hill. Must have been 8 - 10 inches of powder. The rabbits were sitting real tight as you might expect. The dogs did a gritty good job, jumped around 20 and we managed 7 for the day.


This warm up should help get us rolling again.

Duke is doing just great.
A no doubt keeper. Didn't run him today but he is a full time member of the my hunting rotation.
He had a nice derby trial season with 9 winner's packs in 9 trials and on the podium 7 times.
He finished third in the Season standings in the NY association (the IBGA) First and Second place were his sister and brother. Here are a few pics.

Re: Bunnies in the snow

I don't run trials but I am more then happy with her she is the leader of my 3 dogs from about the time she was a year old and my other 2 are both good hunter's and good on the track. One day when she was about a year old she just took over the lead and has been their ever since

Re: Bunnies in the snow

Nice! Ive tried the last 2 days and our powder has a very sharp thin crust, I thought it would have settled as warm as it got yesterday but today was just as bad. Rabbits can't even stay on it. Rain coming so hoping it will pound it down and for cold to make it runnable

That's what we had here at the house Andy, so I called around and my buddy didn't have the crust so away we went.
