Federal land off pompey road is good if they haven't closed the access road
Me and a couple guys with seasoned beagles decided to try our luck at Assunpink ...man, 1 word, MISERABLE.
Our day started on a positive note. We jumped 1 rabbit within 15 minutes out of the truck. Couldnt get a shot off before it circled into its hole. Made the mistake of getting my hopes up ......... Spent the rest of the day brush busting alongside the beagles without a SINGLE cottontail. We hiked MILES - nothing. We drove to different areas. More hiking - nothing. NOT A SINGLE RABBIT.
Assunpink is 100% crossed off my list for bunny hunting.
Update on end of season rabbit hunt.
Went Thursday to Assunpink not expecting too much, a guy on this site who bow hunts told me to try a diff area of assunpink, non stop 5 hours of briar busting rabbit shooting! Got 2 for the pot,
Saturday headed up to north nj for the annual blue ridge beagle club rabbit hunt, picked out a wma and just winged it, from 9 till 3 I had constant runs, they ran long and hard these rabbits. Got 2, missed alot, lol.
Till next year
