Rabbits Hunting Mentor needed Please.

Unread postby zwz5006 » Mon Feb 22, 2016 1:39 am

Hi, My name is John, 28th Years old. me and my two other friends are new hunters from Philadelphia, PA. We have practiced few times at the shooting range. On Sunday, We went on the game land 157 and game land 43 try to hunt Cottontail Rabbits, we could not get anything. We strongly need a hunting teacher. We are looking for an experienced mentor who can teach us how to hunt Cottontail Rabbits please, and we are willing to pay for it please. If anyone who are willing to help us, please email me your contact info at: zwz5005@gmail.com. Prefer a mentor with a Hunting dog. Thanks very much, we really appreciate your kindness. :)

John,
First of all, there are a lot of great people on this site, so its possible that someone reaches out to you. In the meantime, I would recommend that you do as much research as possible on the subject. While getting out into the woods always gives you a better chance at harvesting something than sitting at home, there are always strategies that are best. Read as many articles as you can on whatever you want to hunt, then get out into the woods and see if any of those strategies work best for the type of hunting that you are doing. Outdoorlife and fieldandstream usually have good articles on all types of hunting, but if you search around the internet you'll find hundreds of articles on rabbit hunting. good luck

John good luck. First couple tips if trying again on your own..focus on smaller brusher pieces of woods and overgrown fields. Honeyscuckle, briars and brushpiles are loved by rabbits. Have one guy beat the brush or pile with the others station safety on the sides to watch for bunnies running out.
Walk slow and stop often, bunnies will often let you walk by if moving fast but if slow they will get nervous and often try to get away.

It is special to have dogs and listen to the music, good luck. Hope someone can help you out further.

Good luck and good hunting

John I find the best places to hunt are nurseries and hedgerows, I dont care for dogs, hunting with dogs gets old after an hour of yelping. Plus I shoot more without them. You have to beat the bushes, push like your driving deer with no standers and learn to shoot fast. Last week we killed 34 bunnies in in 3 days. I've had plenty of days like you with no results and probably will again :D . good luck

to tomcbigbucks: we have seen some briars and brushpiles, and we have seen a lot Bunny Balls (Rabbits poop) in one of the game land place but we walked too quick with no stop. you are right , I should be more patient, and walk slowly. "Walk slow and stop often, bunnies will often let you walk by if moving fast but if slow they will get nervous and often try to get away." Thanks a lot for your advice.

Yea ok, right.. :? ...I suggest you become active on this site as I see you appear to be new and only have a few posts. Becoming active you will end up talking to more people, meet people and I'm sure one of bunny guys on here will help ya out. I've met a bunch of good guys from this site that share the same interests that I do, that's one of the reasons I stay active on here. Good luck on your quest.... :mrgreen:
