Over the centuries , I've encountered young bunnies in every month of the year.
Incidentally frog spawn arrived in my pond on Tuesday. Its now frozen in the ice.

ive not seen a bunny round here for 30 yrs . a few miles in any direction there are plenty in similar habitats to here full of bunnies . it is not hunting (there are none to hunt ). , i was out yesterday in a place that when i was a kid there were plenty (and some hares but they went when silage replaced late cut hay ) now none at all
the other side of town is similar in habitats and has bunnies aplenty

Not seen any around here between December and late February before, saw about 6 playing in the hedge earlier, lets hope they grow into big tasty rabbits

No, I can't fit them in the breech because their legs stick out.

I find putting them in legs first helps

Now, shooting crows, that's much more tricky, and as for deer........

we have some very sweet black rabbits ..... think a family pet must have got out a few years back and found a few wild lady bunnies .... there are less and less each year ...but this year have seen 4 little black ones

I believe that's not deemed socially acceptable since Agincourt. Entente Cordiale and all that.

Seen quite a few baby bunnies this year. We have the slight advantage - we breed them

I'd be interested to know more about that when you have a sec, Simon, as it's something we've been considering doing.

No problem.

Come on over to France and you can see them in action

Seriously, I have a few books on the subject so if you need advice just ask.
