Bunny Hunting

Well yesterday was a first for some members of our family, we went bunny hunting, all of us.  Last year Scott and Adin took Freya out on her maiden hunt, just once. 

We got a call from a good friend who hunts rabbits to see if Scott wanted to go and we all went, 2 adults, 3 kids and 3 beagles.  I had never done this before, but I was so excited to go.  Shayna did great.  She was in the heat of the chase with Ben (our friend's beagle) barking up a storm when they found a fresh track.  Freya followed and so did Nikki somewhat.  I think that they were in it for the love.  Every time Nikki saw the girls she would come for love.  Goofy dog. 

In the end, Scott got 2 cottontails and I got one.  We got a total of 5 in our group.  Now we are aging them much like we do our deer to tenderize the meat.  I look forward to trying rabbit for the first time.
