This is my observation rabbits really dont use holes all that much unless they are pressured into one and usually i dont even think that the holes they run into are theirs i think they are ground hogs or whatever. Yes they will be in brush piles and they will be sitting very tight you will have to step on them for them to run. If you dont have a dog jus make sure you get right in the thick of things and they will run out hopefully you have a partner to shoot at them and you can alternate who goes in the brush

A good trick me and my buddies found is, if you think a rabbit is in a pile of brush or logs and just doesn't want to come out, stand around and shoot the s@*t for a while and they will get stressed and try to make a run for it. You have to be paying attention but it will work most of the time.

FWIW
