1st Cottontail
« on: January 24, 2015, 06:43:00 PM »
Enjoyed a little success in the yard. Caught this guy sneaking around the barn and put on a back yard stalk. Just so every one doesn't think I'm shooting tame rabbits. I live in a rural area and have lots of rabbit habitat around my place. But he did come from the yard. Maybe I should have titled it "yard bunny"!
 
Killed him with my Tall Tines. 62" 57@28
 
Yes I was wearing my "stalking sneakers"!

I've cooked rabbit a dozen different ways, and I haven't eaten a bad one yet!
