Hey Kris, Did you read about the great Easter Bunny hunt in New Zealand. Evidently it's a big annual event. They shot 22,000 wabbits! (Rabbits are the most distructive invasive species in NZ.)

I've heard about it once or twice. Seen a few pics of the results. :shock: :shock: :shock:

While its nothing like NZ, years ago I did get to go on a bunny hunt on a farm in Scotland. Shooting just .22s I think we killed about 50 in 2 days.

I'd surely love to get over to NZ and really get after the bunnies for a few days! Somehow, the cost and that LOOOOONG flight has kept me from getting "a round tuit". :oops:

It's very much on my "bucket list" though! :D

Killing wabbits is never wrong! :D I used to raise rabbits. When they were 8-10 weeks old I just whacked them on the back of the head with a hammer and into the freezer they went. YUM!!!! When I was newly married to my first wife and we were pretty poor, we ate rabbit 2-3 times per week. Still love to eat rabbit!

I like just about every kind of game meat. (Except coot and otter!) Rabbit is my favorite. A big swamp rabbit has backstraps you can filet out just like you do a deer. Battered and fried they are like eating sticks of butter! I do remember what we are celebrating on Easter Sunday though.

That sounds GOOD!!! All we get around here are cottontails and not many of them anymore.

Same here. That and habitat loss. Woods are becoming more mature. No understory. no edge. No rabbits. No grouse. :( But lots of deer, Turkey and 'yotes. :)
