Well I took my brother on his first rabbit hunt today

I still just have the one dog Doc I bought from Ed Belding a few months back he has been doing great for me thanks again Ed

Anyway the first rabbit was a work out getting him , most because the terrain he kept staying in was not so shooter friendly an my brother not ever been rabbit hunting before the positioning was taking some work , well doc ran him about an hour before my brother got a shot on him

The rest of the day got a lot better!

After that we soon got on another bunny an I can't remember who killed it but we just keep getting on rabbits an we're doing pretty good hunting a different type of terrain then me an the dog are used to in some spots,

I ended up killing 5 an my brother killed 3 , all were ran around to the gun except one I jumped while doc was off running one an he tried to sneak out of a briar patch I was standing beside

Most races were about 15-20 min had a great day , an my brother is ready ordering him some briar chaps haha

If any body has a good female beagle to sell close to Texas let me know

My brothers first rabbit

Dang! I've got to try that! Looks and sounds like a blast. Post some video of the race if you have them. How big an area do they usually cover?


I can make 'em go! and I can make 'em whoa!
God makes 'em DO!
I carry the gun and blow the whistle.

TX, I'd rather rabbit hunt than ANYTHING else. Even if I don't intend to kill. Try it and you'll be hooked, too. As far as how far they run, it's up to the rabbit. Some stay "close" I'd say about a 1/4 mile circle and keep circling close to where they were jumped. Some get up and leave the country. My uncle once told me that those were the ones that had escaped being caught by coyotes. Either way, it's a blast!

Swamp, that dog looks just like my boy Blazer. He was a field trial reject that I got for 50 bucks. I brought him home and put him with my pack and he fell right in with my "hunting dogs". I took him out with my girl "Belle" and they ran one so long and hard that he was stiff when I shot him from lactic acid build up. I think I did him a favor by killing him, cause they were on him hard.
Love that red tipped tail! 7 ran to the gun...That boy put in some work! I'd say he's a keeper!

Mine weren't house dogs either. I have heard of them being good in the house. But we had too many. Duck I was gonna recommend that he PM you to see if you could help him out with a good female.
