Make runs or lanes in the garden and funnel them into snares or connibear sets. Both can work.

A covered cage trap will work also. Be sure to cover the bottom wire of the cage with dirt.

Yes on the apple. Drove into my driveway last fall and a cottontail was busy on a fallen golden delicious. Picked up his apple and made a 40 yd scramble to the bushes.

When I was young(early 1950's) my dad had a string of homemade wooden box traps on properties just outside the city limits of Milwaukee. He baited with apple and kept us in meat all winter. I still love stewed rabbit with onion gravy, drop dumpling and sweet-sour red cabbage. Mom made the same meal with chicken, pheasant and pork steak. I've made it with muskrat, you can hardly tell it from rabbit.


After the first shot the rest are just noise.
