    So I'm thinking about going rabbit hunting with my bolt 22lr and no dogs, anybody got any good advice. I'm probably going to be going up by mt. Hood area.

    What you ought to do is head down to the Fort Rock area.... the farmers would love ya. And it'd be kinda like shooting fish in a barrel..

    I will be honest, I'm not really sure what im doing cause I normally hunt deer and elk. but I missed every big game season because of work so I figured ide try rabbit since, for the most part, it doesn't really have a season.

    And it sounds fun and tasty :p

    To be specific, I've heard bad things about eating Jack Rabbits. Commercially raised rabbit is tasty.

    Whats bad about eating rabbits up here? Back in Louisiana we ate wild rabbits, but only after the first freeze in the fall/winter.......something about the sick rabbits dying off in the cold so the ones you kill are good to eat.

    Tumeleria.
    (spelling?)

    Its a flea transferred disease,
    the fleas die off after the first frost and so do any sick rabbits.
