Had a great time yesterday hunting with my friends. We had a blast hunting a new farm that we've never been to before. Saw all sorts of game from quial to turkey which flew out bout 10ft in front of us. Also saw One deer run out not but 20ft away. Very nice farm with alot of different cover. I enjoyed walking the property. I was looking for a shed but had no luck. Did see lots of deer sign but no shed.

My leah dog retrieved several rabbits for us and also managed to catch one. Daisy had jumped one and the rabbit thought he was sneaky and hid in a hole but my leah snatched him up and brought him to me.


Some of what we were hunting in and it was pretty thick

The days haul. That's Brad on the left and it was his first time killing a rabbit. He ended up with 4 and also killed the first rabbit of the morning with one shot.

thats exactly what I did/tried. And there was no way I could pull the fur off the meat. No way. I had one person holding and I was pulling as hard as I could and it wouldn't budge. They are tuff to clean. We got a knife and skinned him like a deer and it went quicker. It was a big male fox squirrel. He was tough to clean. That was the second fox squirrel I've ever cleaned and the first one was tougher than this one.

just depends I guess. sometimes the first shot can wound them. I've had to shoot at them 2 or 3 times before they'd quit trying to crawl away using their front legs making their way to a hole at the base of a tree. He shot once and stopped it dead cold that is what I meant. Sorry I didn't make it more clear for you. It was his first time rabbit hunting over my hounds and so it was nice to see that and I was glad to help put him on his first rabbit hunt.
