It's pretty sweet just listening to the dogs work......

Shooting the rabbit is secondary.

I was just going to start a thread on rabbit hunting when I seen this one. I am going down to my uncles in the morning to do some rabbit hunting. He is working some young dogs and it there may be a shower or 2 in the morning so I dont know how well we will do. I will post the results when I get back. Hopefully with a couple of pics of us holding rabbits.

As good as deer hunting? Naw not in my book. But still fun and like everyone else said seeing the dogs work is always a plus.

Rough day for rabbits.. Very wet and young dogs.. Out of the 4 of us hunting I was the only one that shot any.. Got 2.. 1 right after we got there and another right before we left..

My partner missed one at 5 feet in front of him with 2 shots..

She complains about me having four beagles. My dogs will start getting back out next week, after the PA flintlock deer season is over.

Here's a couple of my dogs:

ronn,
Go with a traditional muzzleloader. They're more fun & no disadvantage at all. That gun I'm holding in the pic has also been my turkey gun for many years. It has been the demise of many turkeys.....never had one get away after I squeezed the trigger.

As soon as I can afford one, I plan to get a flint smoothbore to replace that percussion gun.
