Re: jackalopes

I thought they are native to western WY and eastern ID?

However, someone cudda imported some to that area.

I grew up in PA but didn't see one until I got to Idaho.

They're certainly unique but don't taste worth squat.

Re: jackalopes

We got some jackalopes out here, but you can't get within firing reach. They stand about 3' high and can see you coming from over a mile. And FAST, easily outrun your 4 wheeler. And tough, thrown down on your hunting dog for lunch.

Besides that, during the rut, those horns get razor sharp, wouldn't want to get one pissed off at you.

I just kinda let them run wild on my land, keeps coyotes down.

They aren't too dangerous if you can catch them in the velvet.

Re: jackalopes

Nice pic of a variant.

Down here ours don't antler up so well and have longer black tipped ears.

Re: jackalopes

Your Wrong! That photo is definitely known as a easter cotalope. Can't you see the cottontail-antelope cross. Jackalopes are much larger but no branch antler growth!
