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.
