Rabbit hunting tournament

8 posts in this topic

Heading out the door for the annual bunny tournament. Wondering if anyone else on here gets together with friends for anything like this. 13 guys 3 groups 8 am to 4 pm. Last year it took lots of bunnies to win. Outlook is lower this year as snow has drifted in the wood lots making it tough going.

Its an organized hunt that is out of a local bar. We shoot cottontails. You have to clean them after you check in or your points will not count. Three points for a head shot with a 22 2 points for a dead rabbit shot with 22 1 point for dead rabbit shot with shotgun. Its a blast rabbit stew after we also fry some up. Since the bar is just out side of town we hae a shoot of for prices.

Yangbeagle Welcome to the forum.

It looks like this was posted back a few years in 2009. The way I'm reading it sounds like just a bunch of guys getting together for their own bunny hunt tourny.  :)

This year the late snow would have made for snowshoe hunting.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
