RABBIT HUNTING IS NOT ONLY A GREAT SPORT
IT IS A TIME HONORED TRADITION.
MY DAD STARTED ME RABBIT HUNTING WHEN I
WAS OLD ENOUGH TO CARRY A 4.10 SHOTGUN.
WE HUNTED RABBITS FOR THE TABLE
FRIED RABBIT IS GREAT EATING.
RUNNING A PACK OF BEAGLES
AND LISTENING TO THE VOICES
OF THE BEAGLE HOUNDS IS MUSIC TO A HUNTERS EARS.
THE BEAGLES I HAVE OWNED AND HUNTED OVER THE YEARS
HAVE BEEN GREAT HOUNDS THAT HAVE GIVEN ME MANY DAYS
AND SEASONS OF GREAT HUNTING.


MICKEY
WHEN A RABBIT WAS JUMPED HE WAS BAGGED. MICKEY
WOULD RUN A RABBIT UNTIL SHOT OR HOLED UP.
HE WAS A GREAT BEAGLE HOUND.


LUCKY
ON ONE RABBIT HUNT IN POURING RAIN IN A MUDDY
MILO FIELD LUCKY RAN DOWN AND CAUGHT A RABBIT.
ON DRY LAND IF A RABBIT DIDN'T KEEP RUNNING
LUCKY WOULD BE ON HIS TAIL. LUCKY WAS FAST AND
COULD RUN A RABBIT TO ITS END.


JIGGS
NEVER ENDING DRIVE. JIGGS WOULDN'T QUIT.
ON ONE HUNT HE SWAM A 100 ACRE LAKE TO KEEP AWAY
FROM MY DAD WHO WAS READY TO GO HOME.
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE HE JUMPED
ANOTHER RABBIT AND KEPT ON THE TRAIL.
