Cool video! thanks for sharing!

I gotta ask...how do you all keep a healthy population of rabbits in that pen with those long straight paths for the aerial predators to work in?

Hopefully you guys have figured that part out.....it's tough.....

Perhaps the drone is armed with laser guided weaponry?? ;)

Our rabbit population has been bad for so long it does not matter how we keep the club. The club was so thick for 4 or 5 years you could not get through it and everybody felt that the predictors were being protected with all the cover. We don't have rabbits in the wild or anywhere to even stock the club. Belmont Jefferson has almost no cover and they have rabbits everywhere. If somebody figures out how to maintain rabbits it would be great. Our club had rabbits for 20 years and one day they were gone. Around my house I was able to trap 10 to 20 rabbits a year for a long time. Now I am lucky to even see a rabbit in the spring. Places we hunted for years and years there are no rabbits. We have not killed a rabbit in our areas for years.

Very interesting to watch the hounds from the drone.Thanks for sharing.
After seeing the video though I was thinking the same thing as Jim was.Where's the cover to protect the rabbits? I've never seen an enclosure that open.
I'm afraid the beagles I run would be catching a lot of those rabbits.
