Over in this part of the world, the game of choice in the off season is ol' br'er jackrabbit. We like to take long walks in the desert with .22s, .22 mags, .223s, SKSs, Model 94s, and other guns while stalking ol' Jack. At times you'll see him cresting a ridge running full-tilt, other times he'll explode under your feet and zig-zag at full speed till he's out of sight. Occasionally, he's sitting under a creosote bush in the shade without a care in the world; occasionally. Regardless, he makes for some great shooting, some good practise for other game and fine training for the "yung uns".

This year is looking good for ol' Jack around here as there are lots of them out there. How does it look in your area and what do you use on Br'er Jack?

Jacks, once abundent in the area, are on a decline. Cottontails are really picking up, though! To those of you in the northern or eastern climes, our Southwest bunnies look almost like a jackrabbit, in that their ears are much longer to act as heat dissipators. They also tend to be on the rangy side because of scaricity of food and having to flee kajillion coyotes and Harris hawks! Haven't been bunny popping in many years.

They are, indeed, a challenge with a small rimfire rifle or handgun, though.
