Here it is the middle of February and I’m just getting around to putting away my hunting gear until next season. I know there are rabbits, grouse, hares, and even squirrels to hunt until the end of the month in New York but for this hunter, the season is over.
I used to enjoy hunting late-season rabbits with a friend whose beagle, Rex, loved to hunt as much as we did. Time marches on, however, and after Rex died we never hunted rabbits again.
