Could you please elaborate on how you are goin to hunt them? Bow? Rifle? Shotgun? Air rifle?
Each type of rabbit hunting has its own style so you'll need to be more specific.

Something I was told when I ws a kid shooting them in the neighborhood with a pellet gun. When you spook one, and he is running, blow a whistle. Many times, rabbits will stop, and look aroundto see what that was. I don't know why they do it, but it always worked for me.

2) when you, or the dogs spook one up, you can always just stand your ground Rabbits have a habit / instinct to run a circle back to the start point. If you wait a few minutes, good chance that floppy eared cottontail will come right back to you.

Dogs/no dogs? If dogs, just turn them loose and they'll circle the rabbit back to you. If no dogs, do what kdvollmer said yell or blow a whistle and they'll stop sometimes. You'll have to either shoot them on the jump (no dogs) or call/whistle then shoot immediately (no dogs).
