    When does rabbit season start and end? Who all here does it?

    The reason i ask is cause I started my shed hunting today and saw about 20 or so. I would jump them and they would run off about ten yards and stop.

    I figure I'll use my older arrows and my razor tricks with older blades.

    Thats a good idea. I bought a recurve this year and I may carry it shed hunting with some blunts and see if I can get some small game. Be some good practice.:thumb:
