    There is a small rabbit that likes to hang out in my yard, and I was able to get some pictures of him.

    Enjoy!

    We had to remove him from the window well, he didn't really mind being picked up.

    We let them grow up more than that before we hunt them. They've got to put more meat on before they are worth a bullet. ;f ;B Get so mad about hunting you can't even see straight, see if it helps. ;6

    Thanks for the pix PP. It is a cute animal.

    BUT This is a hunting forum.

    Hunting isn't for everyone. I'm certainly not down for parachuting or mountain climbing.

    So if hunting is not your cup of tea, please be respectful of others' interests. We set up this forum to literally discuss hunting.

    I'd like us all to stay civil and be able to agree to disagree without name calling as well.

    We all live here.

    Thanks.

    We have many, many rabbits on campus here (U of Idaho.) I see at least 4 of the things while walking from my car to my class almost every morning. I think at least one needs to be ventilated and subsequently stewed :) Sure they're cute, but they're tasty too.

    A bit small to be away from momma bunny, don't ya think?

    The baby bunnies we find out of their nests are usually the rabbits the mothers have kicked out of the litter. So they don't infect the others. They have grubs or infections most of the time & if predators don't find them 1st, they pass on from what "ills them".

    The thing is, most of the time you can't tell. They look healthy & everything. My sister, when we were little, always talked my mom into letting her try & save them. We'd find 3-4 for per year. Out of 20 or so, none lived. I almost think that trying to save them was kind of cruel to tell you the truth. It just prolonged the inevitable.

    I saved one from the dogs just this past weekend. I found it before they did, that is. I showed it to all the kids & then let it go. I bet he didn't make it through the night. We have putty cats all over out here.

    what a cute bunny you have pp, they are cute and fuzzy, but not many things are more fun than shooting at quick running rabbits with my benelli! specially when you only hit em with about half the shot and they go flipping all over the place ...hehe

    duncan,

    The forum title says hunting, fishing & camping, I felt that posts concerning wild animals would go well here.

    I have no problem with hunting (adult) rabbits.

    If I can get permission from the Federal Center here, I will try to take pics of some of the wabbits and coyotes wandering around there--they are all over the place!

    Cute pics, PP.:)

    I don't have a problem with the pics. I do have a problem with posters who are disrespectful to other posters or to the animals we hunt.

    How about a little contest: let's guess PP's geographic (state resides in) by the clues in the photos

    My guess: Lots of sand, pine needles, ground ivy, fescue grass--
    Southeast region--GA?

    Well, they breed like rabbits. So, the ones you don't catch go back and make more really quickly. Hunted rabbits have a better life than caged and herded cattle, fowl, and swine. I think it’s more compassionate to let an animal live free and hunt it, than to treat it like we treat the animals we raise for meat. I'm not against ranching, don't get me wrong, but compared to animals raised for meat in commercial agriculture, the hunted animals are the lucky ones.
