So I don't muddle the other thread about Canadian jackrabbits. Here are 2 old photos of jackrabbits from Pecos, TX. Rarely sighted anymore, the dust bowl of the 1930s and the depression almost wiped them out.

Great find on the pictures. Heard they were good eating. Which city has the Jack Rabbit monument? Odessa?

Odessa has the monument. These are actually old post cards from Pecos that my wife has collected over the years.

Cool post cards. cheers
Some of those West of Pecos crossed with the Antelope in the area. Had a truck driver friend whom had an El Paso route hauling steel. He said you would see some Jackalopes on the roads side at night.

You know those are authentic because photoshop didn't exist back then.
