I used to have a squirrel call I used to stop them. A little chatter and they would stop right away. not for long, but it would give you teh shot.
High base #6 or #5 shot and a Mod or Full choke. WALK SLOWLY AND QUIETLY. You cant walk too slow. Sounds like you have a good spot for Jacks. They are usually more spread out than cottons. Try to whistle loudly to stop them when they run. I can stop them about 50% of the time by whistling.Watch where they go when they run. Make a big circle around where you last saw the jack and come in from the other side or flank em.

+1I started with 12 gauge and usually could kill "ton", but I quickly got bored. I'd prefer quality than quantity, and mostly challenge. Hit a running jack with rifle or pistol is much more rewarding than using shotgun.
They have more fun missing with a rifle or pistol than they do hitting them with a shotgun. And when you do hit one, it feels better than a hundred of them with a shotgun. But I do have to warn you ahead of time, if you do try this, you must be one of us that enjoys a challenge and just being out more than just killing.

So, while everyone is telling you to "keep using the shotgun", you may still want to consider a rifle or pistol. If they are already so far that you are not getting them with #6's, anything short of buckshot or slugs is going to be useless also. But again, your choice (and frustration), you already know what I would do. Besides finally hitting them, you will also find that ALL your shooting skills will improve (shotgun, rifle, and pistol) if you ditch the shotgun. Aim small miss small, and reach out a Hell of a lot further. But who knows, maybe the bunnies will finally get tired of running and you may get them to stay closer for the shotgun .
I shoot at them as soon as they flush while they are running away, however they flush out before I can get too close, maybe I am too loud and spook them.............. like i said everytime I see them they are haullin ass
