Rabbits with air rifle

What are the minimum specs for hunting rabbit with an air rifle? In terms of pellet weight and velocity? I am specifically interested in air rifles as I will be using it in my yard. Are there laws restricting where I fire an air rifle? I am in CT. Obviously I will still be sure of whats behind the target etc.

Re: Rabbits with air rifle

I shot 30 rabbits in my back yard during one 12 month period.

Ranges were as far as 22 yards.

.177 caliber, 8.4 gr, 1,000 FPS

Many cities do not allow air rifles.

Re: Rabbits with air rifle

Does that stop them in their tracks or do you have to go look for dead bunnies in the neighbours garden?

You can't count on them dropping in their tracks.

My immediate neighbors are thrilled that I prune the population to protect all our gardens. But...I am very careful who I let know I am dong it.
