    Anyone out there hunting rabbits?

    Are any of you out there hunting rabbit these days? How’s it looking out there?

    not great around Kamloops, at least not compared to the past several years - I'm figuring this winter is probably the low point in the cycle.
    However they are still out there and if you can find good habitat and a bit of a refuge population you can do okay.

    In region 2 I did ok, actually. No point of reference, though as I have only lived in the LM for a few years and only recently got into small game... So maybe my expectations are low. That said...I do have a few hares in my freezer/belly....

    What's everyone's strategy in the winter?? If I see them in the winter they're running 100'MPH by the time you see them, it's not like in August when they line the roads...

    I have no luck shooting them in the winter either. The snare is pretty deadly though.

    Awesome topic. Used to see a fair amount of rabbits on some of my old grouse roads in the Cariboo, but have never jumped so many while walking in the bush here in the Kamloops area. Loves me some surprise rabbit! Man they can startle a guy creeping for deer

    I just made a set of ten snares and will be hitting the bush this weekend (whitehorse)! First time setting for hares. Went out last weekend with the pup and my 22 but only saw a ton of tracks.
