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.

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
