Rabbit Hunting in Utah

We went out New Years day and had a blast. I shot eight rabbits in a couple hours. I missed quit a few too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]. Man those little guys keep me tuned up in the winter time. Every shot was at one running full speed. I killed several over 150+ yards, which is a long ways for a rabbit running full speed. My 22-250 makes it seem easy though. Thought I would just share this story because hunting rabbits can be a blast. Especially here in Utah there are so many. If you are in the area you gotta try it.

Re: Rabbit Hunting in Utah

I would agree with you. But,I enjoy taking the AR-15 to stop the little bunny rabbits. I went over the Christmas Holiday, I to had a BLAST. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
But to keep it interesting take the 22 LR out and keep the distance past 75 yards.

I did that too. Man its amazing how high I had to hold and how much you have to lead them. They can humble you in a hurry. Just bought a new AR and haven't had it out yet so we'll see how that goes next.

Re: Rabbit Hunting in Utah

We went out to the West Desert, out by Vernon. I think they are one of the funnest animals to hunt. Especially when they jump and run two feet from ya. There are 100yds away before you know it. Are there any good places down by richfield?

A 22-250 sure would waste a lot meat. I hate to think that you are shooting a game animal that is great eating and not harvesting the meat.
