It's cutting them loose and having the pack run the rabbit until it gives up and goes in a hole or gets caught. And although the dogs usually don't catch it, they run like they want to. Just me and my pack of hounds, in any condition, on any day, in the roughest places I can find . . .

Where are the Stinking Rabbits?

We had more weather changes in two days than most people have in a season.  The wind was blowing like we were on the edge of a hurricane.  For central Ohio, it was colder than we should ever have to deal with.

BUT, no excuses allowed.  The old man and I were running in this big pine thicket.  I know there are rabbits there.  So where were they?  Where are the stinking rabbits?  I am sure somewhere someone is saying, "you need better jump dogs."  The thing is, these same dogs usually keep us in rabbits for as long as we want to run.

So what's the deal?  Is it the dogs?  Could old so and so from years past jump rabbit after rabbit?  Or if someone else was running in this same spot would rabbits be busting out from undeneath every briar bush?

I think I will just blame the weather.  It is a lot easier to blame the change in conditions--freezing temperatures and 30 mph wind.  After all, it couldn't be the dogs.  :)
