HUNTING RABBITS WITHOUT A DOG

HUNTING RABBITS WITHOUT A DOG


HUNTING RABBITS WITHOUT A DOG By James Dewey Stone.

One bright morning, the temperature ranging about thirty degrees, my father or "Dad," as I always call him, decided we would go out hunting "bunnies." Of course it was a school day; but who can resist? I couldn't, anyway, so we started out about nine o'clock. We had no hound," so I took the double Remington for me, and "Dad" took the axe. We hadn't been gone long before we found some tracks, and "Dad" started after one, and I kept along the side of him, watching for Bunny No. 1 to start. Well, we did not go far before he started and he kept on hiking till he found a log that looked very inviting to him. When "Dad" found him he started to yell "Mike, come over here." So I started and when I got there, poked him out, and "Dad" caught him. The next one we chased around a few times before we got him, as I fell off the stump, and shot the top off a pine stub about twelve feet high the first time. Of course I couldn't explain that part satisfactorily to "Dad," for he put me in mind of it every little while all day.

The next two or three, I got when they jumped, so it was no trouble for us. The rest of them "Dad" ran around and they had to go all the time.

Some people do not believe a person can run a rabbit around, but I do not believe there ever was a rabbit lived that could fool "Dad." I run them around; but if I lose them, I have to let "Dad" figure it out. Anyway, we kept on this particular day until we had thirteen of them.

This is not a very big day's hunt; but it il more than anyone else around here gets with two or three dogs; besides about eight rabbits is about all anyone wants to tote around ill day with an eight-pound gun in the bargain. My dear readers, if you haven't a hound, do not think there is no sport in rabbit hunting For my part I would rather leave the dog at home, if there is a good snow for tracking. CM course when there is no snow we cannot hunt without him. Up here in Gladwin county, Michigan, we used to have lots of game, but it is getting scarcer every year, although there a pretty fair hunting yet.

There is also pretty good trapping for the amount of people that are on the job. Our outfit for hunting consists of one double-bane! Remington shotgun, a single-barrel Iver-Johnson, both being 12 gauge, and a .44-40 Winchester.
