Bowhunting rabbits

Hi all I am a HUGE Glock enthusiast and bow hunter from Scotland, I spent some time living in MS and hunting white tails and loved it. Now I live in Andalucía, Spain and we have fallow, roe deer, red stag, wild boar, Ibex, mouflon and more. It is a great place to hunt and i´d like to share some photos. I have a lot of hunts planned for this year also.

I am in the events team of a hunting company in Holland and I hold seminars and workshops on bow hunting as there are very few bow hunters in the European continent. I like to spread the word (so to speak).

I really enjoy bowhunting all kinds of animals, but squirrels and rabbits are my favorite with the longbow!

I worked on an island in the Gulf of Alaska, during my career, that was over run with "rabbits".

The rule was to shoot the young ones because the old ones were tough. After shooting my first old one I understood the rule.
They were so tough they were difficult to kill and almost impossible to skin.

I lost several arrows to rabbits that ran away with them. They burrow in holes and under logs and would disappear with an arrow protruding from both sides! I don't know how.

I tried several kinds of blunts and none seemed to work well. The broad head I used on moose performed best for me with a head or chest shot. I ruined more than a few arrows which gets very expensive.

While I found hunting the bunnies to be great fun as well as excellent practice, I finally began using a 22 pistol. My success rate skyrocketed.
It takes a minimum of 100 pounds of clean meat to have a batch of sausage made.

Supposedly, these were European Hares brought in many years ago and raised to feed foxes on the Fox Farm. They were released or escaped and took over the island after the fox farm went out of business. No foxes survived.
The bunnies came in all color phases from natural brown to black to the occasional sacred white.

It appears to me the rabbit in your photo is smaller.
I'm curious, do you know exactly what kind of hopper that is?
And how are they as table fare?

Have you ever thought of using sml-game blunt head instead of a field/target point?

I hunt sml-game from rabbit , coons and once a squirrel using the plastic blunt heads or custom heads produce from nickel plated 38spc/357magnum cases with one .33 buckshot install glue to a wooden shaft for my recurves.

This is a effective game head and with the buckshot the FOC stays much better and with higher effectiveness.

We use "bludgeon" tips for rabbits here. They make a loud thump when they hit.
