Took the 12 gauge out for a change hoping to whistle in a young fox I'd seen hanging around the day before, but no luck. On the walk back home this young hare was silly enough to bolt from cover and one shot from the old SxS dropped her. She was a nice clean head shot so another one for the pot.
I've been reading some of the posts about Jack Rabbits and wondering how they differ from hares, or if they differ at all? From the pics posted they look very similar. The hares we have here are 'European Brown Hare' that were introduced in the 1800s. They are declared a pest, therefore no season or bag limit, although a lot of hunters see them more as a game animal than a pest and they are prized for the pot.
