Rabbits are everywhere this year

Living N of I-80 rabbits over the last few years have been awful scarce, most wind up on the menu of some predator quick.
This year they seem to be everywhere which is good, sure would be nice to hunt some this fall.

Re: Rabbits are everywhere this year

Any given evening I have at least half a dozen in my yard. I have not had that in quite a few years. I even have them living under my shed. It's nice to see for a change.

Re: Rabbits are everywhere this year

And this even with hawk numbers on the rise...not possible. I have seen a ton of rabbits places I go bird watching, but I always see a lot in those places. Good habitat makes a BIG difference.

Great pictures!

Re: Rabbits are everywhere this year

Sounds like good news to me.

Griz if you're interested we are probably gooing to have another HPA rabbit hunt this winter. We had a good group of guys last year and everyone had a great time. Keep your eye on the small game forum later in the year and join us for some rabbit hunting.
