Our GSP presented 3 baby rabbits from the back yard to us last night.  It's remarkable what a soft mouth they have.  She had to prance around with them before presentation.  All three were just fine and I relocated them in the front yard under some bushes that have some living there.  She was kind enough to give the wife another one this morning.j  Again out front.  It's a long story why we own a GSP - one of the kids.......  Anyway there is no way she could hunt.  Firecrackers and thunder have her whimpering in the bathroom - I assume she would be gun shy.  And my hunting days are long gone anyway.  She does love to bring us live ones though - in the house is even better for her.

 

Go to get the mail a minute ago and I'm expecting one of those UPS/USPS handoffs that sometimes end up on our porch instead of the mailbox.  A nice looking cat is sitting there on the porch giving me a FU look.  Not leaving. I haven't seen a cat loose around here for at least five years.  I would guess it has a few more little rabbits in mind for supper.

So the GSP lets them live but the asshole neighborhood cat likely kills the bunnies?  

Our beagle got a baby rabbit one time in the yard.  Dang!  Those scream like babies.  Very unsettling.

Yes, the scream of a rabbit is VERY off-putting.

I always thought it was a BS story, until I hit the back half of a bounding snowshoe hare with a 12 gauge, SWMBO was right with me, the hare screamed like a toddler getting murdered.

We have about one (audible) rabbit kill a week behind our house due to bobcats, coyotes, hawks, owls, probably cougars. You get used to it and realize it's just a bunny.

Mine is only half GSP (other half is boxer) and she's a stone cold killer.  She's caught squirrels, rabbits, mice, and a prairie dog.  She strikes with precision and if you're nearby you can hear the bones crunch.

It truly put me firmly OFF hunting rabbit in my early teens.  I'd do it for food if I truly needed it, of course, but not for fun.

i've never seen the appeal of rabbit or squirrel hunting myself.

 

unless we're talkin about hunting them as a pest removal technique.

We kept Flemish giants and Rex’s when I was a kid.. Only they were temporary pets.... Mom would ask me to grab a rabbit(translation- “go chase down that big fvcker and hope he doesn’t scratch the shit out of you”) Give her the rabbit, she breaks the neck. rabbit becomes next days dinner, skin put in a bag in the outside freezer.

Slaughtering rabbits is easier because they're killed instantly. The problem is when they're wounded but not killed so they scream.

Yeah.... My Dad wasn’t as good as Mom at snapping neck(she was way better than JetBrewer, and feces was not involved)
