    Ha. :)

    This picture was taken not 5 minutes ago. :supergrin:

    I was sitting out on the back deck about 10 minutes ago, noticing a couple of rabbits scampering around. I looked to my left and there were two more; a look to my right revealed two more! My mind said, "too many!!" I went in and got my Mossberg Plinkster .22lr with a cheapo BSA scope on it. Two shots were fired from 45 yards away.....here is the result! Two cute but pesky bunnies with holes right behind the shoulders. ;) Who says that a $90 rifle and a $25 scope can't be effective? :tongueout:

    Stewed sounds good. With veggies! :eat:
    Heading out now to clean 'em up. It's been awhile since I've "ett" rabbit, but I didn't realize there were so many around us! The skin's so loose on these two, I doubt I'll even need the knife. My mouth is watering already.

    That sure is some green grass. What kind of fertilizer are you using on it? (other than the blood of rabbits)

    Bunny droppings are rich in plant nutrients.

    Got one of those, too! ;) At 45 yards, the .22 seemed a better choice, though. :supergrin:

    Ahhhhh, the smell of stewed bunny is filling the kitchen! :) Luckily my wife is still gone. Maybe if I hurry I can get these things cooked up and in the fridge by the time she gets home!! :supergrin:

    it's black.

    it has a scope.

    it has an assault style high capacity magazine.

    it's semi automatic.

    yep, seems like a sporting purpose for such a nasty evil sniper assault weapon, but watch it around your kids, those things have a bad habit of jumping up and going on killing spress all by themselves (the rifle, not the kids).



    sorry, i had to. :rofl:

    You know... A Hunting License is a way for the state to make money. And hunting seasons are silly, but I suppose needed. It is another drain on the people who actually kill to eat.

    It has been clear throughout the thread that he killed the rabbits and now has the intent of eating them. No harm, no foul.

    Plus, he was on private property, why should the state have any control over what he kills and eats on his property?

    Nice work XMM! :thumbsup:

    Hunting seasons are established to allow hunting at the right time for the species. Winter is a time when rabbits don't have young ones or are pregnent. More than likely, he hes left some small rabbits to starve to death. I never said one word about licences.

    I'm not a tree hugger, I enjoy Rabbit deer, etc. I'm glad he's eating them, I hope they turn out nice. I just don't agree with shooting them out of season, then posting it of a gun board.

    Not every one who gets on a site like this is as understanding. Bragging about poaching doesn't really reflect well on us.

    They were doing or about to do damage to livestock or property... Free reign. Everyone has the right to protect property from wildlife...:tongueout:
