My feeder pens are made of 1/2 height cattle panels The rabbits eat a ton of corn every feeding. Would putting chicken wire on my panels keep the rabbits out? We have too many cotton tails eating like kings.

What other ways to keep them away? I shoot them all the time. There are way too many.

Poisons? Repellents?

Just remember what ever kills the rabbits will most likely kill what eats the dead rabbits
Find someone that likes rabbits, then take them a mess of them

So on a serious note, would you go ahead and use a .22LR or would a .22 air rifle be decent enough? Wanting to shoot a few cotton tailed thiefs while waiting on deer, thought maybe an air rifle might be quieter and not disturb the hunt as much?

I think I'll try chicken wire around my smaller one. There's way too many rabbits.

I'm not there to shoot them enough. I do shoot them some though. After deer season I may do a rabbit hunt:) I need to sight my 22 in at 80 yards. Long shots for my 10/22.

We turn the teenage boys loose after them with .22's before the season......improves their shooting skills and thins the rabbits...
