Rabbits

My son and I went rabbit hunting last January 2005 and were skunked - seeing only 2 jackrabbits while walking most of the day.

The next day, our cousins joined us for some skeet shooting and we all had a blast, with my boy and I hitting 92 out of 100 and 89 out of 100 to win the contest.

I went out behind mud lake WMA in eastern idaho the other day and there were more rabbits out there than i have ever seen before. We just cruised down the road in the evening and were stopping every hundred yards or so to chase the critters. There were a lot of big black ears too.

Rabbits come in cycles that peak every 6 years or so; the populations sky rocket then they recede to a low point and begin to climb until they max out again. This could be why you saw all those rabbits.

This may sound stupid but what is a black ear??
