Rabbits with beagles
Great pictures. Looks like a lot of fun and some fine meals there. Nice work!
Got out the other day with the kids and some beagles after our snow Fri eve. Bunnies were holding very tight, had to step on them. When we got them up there were no tracks around so they had been sitting from the afternoon before it snowed. Places with tracks they were all down their holes, have to thin a few foxes out.
We got 2 bunnies but saw more, just either missed or no safe shots.
Sorry no good pic like previous years.
I was asked to bring my hounds to the U.P. for a youth hunt in early Dec., odd there wasn't any snow yet! My friend John (90 years old) organized the hunt as well as the youth's that were to attend.
The ywo youth's that were suppose to hunt Saturday cancelled Friday night and one of the two for Sunday cancelled that morning. Too bad they couldn't make it, the hounds ran the Hare past me several times that presented some good opportunity for shooting.
I did have the pleasure to be apart of a very nice young lady's first Hare hunt and her first harvested Hare on Sunday. Riley impressed me with her attention to gun safety as well as paying attention to where the hounds were.
The hounds ran 21 miles on Saturday and 17 miles on Sunday before we called it.
As for the original posters question, I raise and train my own hounds. I hunt everywhere I get the chance to go, WI, U.P. of MI., Lower MI., IN. and have recently been invited to AL. to hunt Swampers.
Going to ME. to hunt Hare is on my bucket list.
