Rabbits Lancaster Lebanon Dauphin

Hey everyone ive been trying to do some rabbit hunting around these areas and am located in Elizabethtown. the problem is i havent came across good rabbit habitat with many rabbits, so im wondering are there just not a lot of rabbits around here or is some decent rabbit habitat that hard to come by?

I live in Mount Joy and have about 10 in my yard every night. Habitat is terrible, other then the sheds they hide under. Habitat is not the key, it is location, location, location.

Re: Rabbits Lancaster Lebanon Dauphin

Have you hunted these areas under different conditions. Like hunting the area after a good rain, in windy conditions, etc. Seen many times, you can go through an area one day and get nothing, even with dogs, then hit two weeks later under different conditions and they are everywhere.

If so, then it might not be a good place to hunt. Good habitat means rabbits which bring along the predators. So you got to find a place with good cover that hasn;t been hounded by yotes and other predators, including other hunters.

There is lots of great rabbit habitat, the problem is there is alot that is within safety zones. The big pieces with plenty of room for hunting got posted signs and getting permission might be an issue.


This year has been pretty decent for us, can;t really say its anything out of the ordinary.
