    Looking to do some rabbit hunting this year not sure where to start. I would assume the best places are going to be near the coast range.
    Anyone know of some decent areas?

    Do we have enough Rabbits on the wet side to justify a "hunt" of them. I walked about 100 miles last year bird hunting and don't recall seeing more than one or two micro bunnies.

    Well now that you mention the "east side" it brings up the idea of hunting Rabbits or "Hares" out east of Bend. I think you would be able to collect a few out there.

    Well that is quite an expensive drive drive for a couple wabbits, mostly meant the east side of the coast range. not Oregon haha
    I'd just as soon go buy a few rabbits for the money it would take to drive past bend.
