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.

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

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