Default Damn Rabbits!!

I've got rabbits (Cottontails) eating my peas in my garden.[:@] Last year I zipped 3 of them with my recurve in 3 shots. The yardages were 20 yards, 25 yards, and 35 yards. Funny thing was the 3 rabbits I got last spring were the 1st 3 arrows I've shot in about 5 months and I couldn't of hit them better.

Well this evening I seen 2 rabbits out there and I snuck with in 31 yards of it and let an arrow fly. I thought I nailed it but I was just short about an inch or so or it moved before my arrow got there. Either way It was right there and just missed.

An hour later it was back. I got with in about 20 yards this time and shot about 3 inches short. I went to look for my arrow and there the rabbit was at about 15 yards. I thought to myself your dead. I don't usually miss at that range. Well you guessed it, I missed!![:@] The arrow went right under his throat. All I had was a head shot and I missed low an inch or so.[&:] Last weekend I was at a Traditional shoot where I shot a good 60 arrows so I can't use the excuse that I haven't shot in a while.[8D] Heck I didn't get to practice last year I did much better. Its weird how stuff pans out sometimes.

Rabbits 3 me 0 so far!

Till next time folks!!!

Thats not too bad, rabbits can be trickey to hit, and I swear they dodge when they see an arrow coming!

Better luck next time.

That's funny. You'll get another crack at them I'm sure.

Last thing I shot at was a woodchuck out my upstairs back window (I have to take them out myself since the death of my lab/dane mix, he was real good at taken them out). It was only about 12 yards and I thought he was a toast. Unfortunately, I didn't compensate for the window sill and quess what I hit? [:@]


Here is a pick of my old friend:

The most enjoyable part about maintaining a garden is keeping the rabbits at bay.

Rabbits 3 me 0 so far!
Well its now 0 for 6![:@] I missed 3 times this evening and lost an arrow. The shots were out there a ways tonight. Rabbits are starting to get jumpy now with me chasing them around. 2 out of the 3 shots the rabbits were gone before the arrow even got there. Both of them shots would of connected too! Oh well I guess, fun target practice.
