Hey all, what beautiful weather we have been having here in California in the past several days. I wanted to share a recent trip we took into some remote locations here in the local mountains. This has been an area I have spent much time scouting and was finally able to spend several days filming there. The area has a ton of Native American history and is so vast I have not yet explored all of it. The area I had chosen for the hunt has one of the largest populations of Blacktailed Jackrabbits I have personally encountered. I will enclose several photographs of our adventure followed by a video I hope you may enjoy as well.

Took this guy running up a hill 63 yards

As you can see from the photographs and screen shots the place is a dream to hunt. We ended our trip with a total of 8 Jackrabbits, my cooler was packed. I can't wait to get back out and try for more when time allows for it. Here is the video that includes a look at my kit along with the footage from our two day hunt.

Yes it is some nice area, but one could still get lost out there.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

Thanks you guys, yeah it's a huge area that I don't think I'll ever explore completely. Having Marley on a hunt is pretty entertaining. lol She's a character
