Apparently the rabbit population was a problem in 1913 in the Rowena Texas area.. There were also rabbit drives like this in the early 1950's, my job then was sitting, in my grandpa's pickup.

Dang! It looks like they got one too.


If you can't laugh at yourself, give me a call. I'll gladly laugh at you.

Thanks a bunch. Brings back old memories except I hunted them with a beagle.

IIRC, 11 or 12 jackrabbits will eat what a cow does in a day's time.

There are a few videos on You tube of folks herding up the rabbits back then. Most of them just used clubs.
