    Just finished my vacations. Went whitetail hunting but no luck with the bucks, saw a couple of big does but werent what I was looking for. In the meanwhile we got to hunt rabbits with a bunch of dogs and the horses. Just ride, the rabbit runs, and the dogs chase them until one gets a hold of them, and then you take it away from the dogs. It was a lot of fun. We hunted 54 in a day. Didnt gun)shot any, but it was a different way of hunting, and was a lot of fun.
    Just sharing hunting experiences.lightbulb
    Hope you enjoy the pictures.:D

    Well, I have killed a truck load of rabbits before but I have never killed a horse load of rabbits.


    What kind of dogs do you use?

    Did you eat the rabbits? Have any good rabbit recipes?

    Thanks for the comments guys!!!:)
    We used the community people dogs. This hunt took place in the Andes mountains in central Ecuador, in the rural areas people have dogs for many purposes, and one of those is hunting small game as a way to get protein in their diet. They are mixed breeds of everything, and they are not a breed in particular just a mixture of who knows, some are big some are really small, but all of them participate and help you in the hunt.
    The pictures below show some of them. Promise next time will take better pictures of the dogs.
    For a recipe I skin them, and fry them in Coca-Cola:D
