Last trip out of the season was tough running at times. We hunted some bottom land which was holding a ton of water from recent winter rains. Today we jumped I would say around 30 rabbits but many of them swam for safer ground. Most of what we did jump and kill were swamp rabbits with 4 hillbilly's mixed in. Dogs did a great job of sticking with each rabbit as they crossed through water sometimes knee and thigh deep. We still had a pretty successful day with 16 rabbits total, 4 hillbilly's, and 12 swampers, but they didn't always come easy with some tough conditions.
This is a picture of a couple of our swampers we were able to take thanks to the hounds sticking with the trail through flooded bottom land.

Hey Blake, looks like another good hunt for the Rabbit Commander boys! Did y'all keep a running count of how many y'all wound up with this year?

I guess now you will be focused on catching those green carp! Lol

Swampers are significantly bigger (maybe 50% larger at times). Other than that, by appearance they are essentially identical.

Swampers obviously live in watery areas and spend a lot more time in/around the water.
