    You got it right Robin. We are almost into winter now. That's why I love coming over for the SE................I get to spend a couple of weeks in a hot place, work on my tan, enjoy seeing scantily clad women..............while all my friends get to wear bulky clothes and look at shapeless creatures...............

    So, if there is scantily clad women at the SE shoot, how come we only see pictures of JB holding a sausage or CPJ dressed like a sausage? WHO is in charge of the cameras?

    Shouldn't you be assisting with the rabbit problem by shooting one with a .375 H&H?

    If I lived over there, I'd spend all my money on .22 LR ammunition. That's a lot of rabbit meat on the paw. If there was no market for the carcasses, then they could be composted and used as topsoil. With the millions of them available, you'd never run out of shooting opportunities.

    Another question; are they rabbits or hares? Seems all that digging of burrows would indicate hares.

    Rabbits.


    Hares live above ground in 'Forms' .......... sort of like a scrape .............

    Now here is something interesting:

    Normally a shy animal, the European brown hare changes its behavior in spring, when hares can be seen in daytime chasing one another; this appears to be competition between males to attain dominance (and hence more access to breeding females). During this spring frenzy, hares can be seen "boxing"; one hare striking another with its paws (probably the origin of the term "mad as a March hare"). For a long time, this had been thought to be intermale competition, but closer observation has revealed it is usually a female hitting a male to prevent copulation

    I think my ex wife was part Hare............

    Interesting. Our cottontail rabbits live and bear their young above ground in a form. The young are born in a sort of grass 'nest' with fur pulled from the mother's belly for warmth.

    We have hares here, too. Snowshoe hares(called rabbits also) and jackrabbits, that are really hares.

    "A Jack Rabbit is not a rabbit -- it is a hare. The name comes from the fact that early settlers distinguished this animal from the various forms of cotton tail rabbits by comparing the ears of this hare to that of a jackass. A "jackass rabbit" became, in time, a "jack rabbit"."

    We hunted an European hare mix with the Washington hare on San Juan Island in Puget Sound thanks to Spanish explorers having some of the European
    hares they brought for food escape back when Spanish explorers explored unexplored territory for the Spanish Crown.

    Big rabbit like critters, a big one is right tough table fare.
