    When I was a kid, one of my friends dad took us somewhere over in the Bend/ Burns area for winter rabbit hunting. There was snow on the ground and rabbits everywhere. Does that hunting still exist? I don't hear anyone talk about it It seems like a good way to keep sharp and not just put the guns away for the winter. Thanks

    I think EE Wilson has a rabbit season that started in the begging of this month

    I went rabbit hunting with a friend down in Paisley last year, it was a blast.....literally! Jack rabbits-o-plenty, plus a few coyotes here and there. If you go down that way, obviously make sure you either on public property, or have permission. It is beautiful country down there, pretty near the same area as Christmas Valley.

    I went to EE Wilson one time with my son. Unfortunately it was during Pheasant season and it was like Baghdad there was so much shooting. WAY too many hunters for the area, of course most of them didn't venture too far off the road, but we left after about 1 1/2 hours. I think if we had walked as far in as possible and worked our way back it would have been better, but then the shots would have been coming at us! :paranoid:
