Wife & I went to Corvallis today to take part in a rabbit hunt put on by Oregon's Fish & Wildlife department. Wife's never hunted rabbits before so this was a great way for her to give it a try. We also enjoyed watching the dogs from the local hounddog club as they howled & chased the few rabbits that were out in the 35 degree weather. There was a reporter from the local news covering the event and he asked to interview me. His quote is a little off as I never said "bring home dinner" but it's close enough to what I actually said on video. Also, I think his rabbit count is off as I personally bagged 3 bunnies. I'm sure the 27 other hunters had to have bagged more than just an additional 4. Here's my flash of "fame" via their website:CLINIC OFFERS TIPS ON SMALL GAME HUNTINGBy Joe RaineriNORTH OF CORVALLIS - Rabbit season goes until next month and the weekends are popular times for folks to head into the outdoors.A clinic is put on each year by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The class is designed to teach hunters about safety and the great outdoors. At E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area near Corvallis more than two dozen people came out for the annual small game hunting clinic."Folks are always asking us how do we get involved with hunting so we want to make the outdoors more accessible to families and individuals in particular," says Chris Willard, Hunter Education Program Coordinator, with ODFW. The classes not only provide knowledge about guns and equipment, but the most important part...safety.Classes are designed for young and old and for any learning level. Once these folks got their hands on the trigger at the practice range they were ready to track down their target.If they are patient enough, it will pay off in the end. But for some hunters it's more than just the catch today. "Laughs...bring home dinner and also my wife came out with me and she's never been rabbit hunting before so this is kind of a step for her," says hunter Wes *last name removed*. Out of the seven groups they were able to hunt down seven rabbits.
