2011 season starts with a bang!!
« on: November 19, 2011, 03:04:52 PM »
What a great morning to be out after Mr. Bunny. It was 24 degrees with just enough breeze to keep the heavy frost off the ground. We had 7 dogs down, my 4 and my buddies 3 and with in minutes of dropping the tailgate we had a split race going. I don't like to kill many out of this place, but my buddy had a 14 month old on the ground for her first gun hunt so we really wanted her to get fur in her mouth. We probably jumped 10 or 12 only ran 7 of those and killed 4. One briar patch we went in was about 20x20 in size and 3 different rabbits came out when the dogs went it!!  We all had to be home by noon or so, so we cut the day short. We left plenty of rabbits for the future and only hunted half the farm. I won't be able to rabbit hunt until the 2nd of December but I can promise we will hit the ground running after them starting then. Here's the money shot, and I forgot my camera in the truck while hunting so no field shots from today, sorry.

Congrats Ned!  Sounds like you all had a heck of a time!  O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
