Rabbit Hunting Tips

Rabbit Hunting Tips

Small game hunting season has begun, and although rabbit hunting is not as popular as its dove and quail hunting counterparts, it is still an invigorating sport. The statewide rabbit hunting season will be open until February 28th, and hunters are permitted to bag twelve rabbits per day. There are other things to keep in mind as you rabbit hunt this season; in this blog, I will be sharing a few tips with you to ensure you have the best experience!

Where To Find Them:

Rabbits are naturally found near their food sources, which include grass, weeds, wheat, and twigs. Look for rabbits in small but covered fields, piles of brush and weed, or other rural hideouts. Once you locate the rabbits, your approach will cause them to dash, then all you have to do is aim and fire! For more tips on the best locations to find rabbits, click here.

Proper Apparel:

Since most rabbit hunting occurs in overgrown areas, it is important that you wear thick clothing like field pants, a coat, a hunting vest, and gloves to protect your hands from thorns and briars. Rabbit hunting requires close, tight shooting, so you will not have much time to plan or aim your shot. You will want a fast but steady firearm. Most rabbit hunters rely on a simple but effective shotgun, but a .22 rifle or pistol would work just as well.

I hope you enjoy this year of small game hunting with your family and friends. With these tips in mind, you are sure to have a successful season!
