Mountains Are For Rabbits Too!

Hard Going – But Worth It!


What do you do when January seems more dark and blue than usual, and cabin fever threatens to ruin the day?

Well, grab some friends (or be grabbed) and get out there and do some small game hunting, of course.

I took this brace of mountain cottontails, and others, with a tack-driving .22 rifle in a heavy, knee-deep snow in northwestern Colorado.

It was a whole bunch of fun, and a fine meal of rabbit is just around the corner.

And remember, Spring will come…
