Damn rabbits!!


Does anyone know any way to keep rabbits from crapping all over my lawn without doing harm to my dogs??? I have rabbits in my neighborhood like squirrels. Does anyone know of anything natural to keep them away?

Good one Tarheel: I have heard you can run a string around your yard at a heighth of 4-5", rabbits won't jump it. Dogs will tangle in once, then learn to avoid it - Silly rabbits

A great horned owl and a red tailed hawk hang out in my yard---No rabbits---I wish that they would eat more squirrels though--

Squirrels put up too much of a fight for the hawk (usually) and they sleep at night when the owl is hunting( to bad)
Now the rabbits are easy pickings for both

True, the 12 gage is a little much, but it is hard to miss em. Can you still get birdshot for the .22?

Oh Ya, Got those too....

Out to 50' or so, they work real well...
100'/ 150' to the back of the lot is abit of a reach for 'em though...
Still LOUD though, they carry the charge of .22 long rifles...

The .22 short are effective to the limits of my yard, through my scope,...
Single shot to the head kills are the norm...

If you have broadleaf weeds that rabbits favor in your yard the solution may be too eliminate them.

If scaring them off is enough...
a BB or pellet hitting an old pie pan hung low in a tree or two works well.
