    I don't think rabbits can fly.

    I used to do it but I was younger and excited to get one. I was always cautious of who was around,
    but it's more rewarding of shooting a cockbird flying away then sitting on the ground looking at you in a very vulnerable position. Lol

    What about if you wing one , it can't fly and is running and you don't have a dog and no one else is around.

    I don't under stand the mentality most hunters on NJH are against shooting a running deer it has to be a quick ethical clean quick kill, but a bird should be flying or it is un sportsman like… doesn't that bird deserve a quick clean kill also? I understand the hunting with dogs a have no problem with that, but if you see a bird and you have a safe shot why not just take the easier shot ? after all the idea is to kill a bird for dinner>
