    No cammo is necessary to hunt them. Depending on how accurate you are, is how much ammo you will need. I would hunt in the morning and evening. You may see something in between but I usually just find that I am walking around.

    no cammo, and if you're good a 410 is a blast to use.

    You need good camo if you don't have Beagles. They will pick you up a country mile away walking through the brush. Some tactics are driving them out of their holes, dogs, and just walking around till you find them.

    You don't need any camo. A good beagle is probably best but all you really need to do is go wading into a fencerow or a brushpile. If you kick one up or just miss remember in a while that rabbit will circle around and come back to that same spot. Also if you don't get all tore up by thorns you aint rabbit hunting.

    Not much needed to hunt rabbits. I use to just grab the single shot and start stomping around. If state requires, wear hunter orange or whatever is required. 20ga is fine, just wait for them to get out there a little so you don't blow the heck out of them.

    Don't think you need a dog, although they are handy, but if your young...just get out there and work the fence rows and brush piles. Especially around crop fields.

    Rabbits never leave far from their nests, so if you see one, it wont go far. Camo is less important, because they will hear you and see you no matter what.

    I like to hunt bunnies after a snowfall, makes finding them easier, just look for thick areas with lots of tracks brown pellets and yellow snow.

    You don't need alot of camo. But I wouldn't use a 20 gauge because there will be a lot of b.b.s in the meat.

    If your hunting rabbits with or without a beagle you don't need binoculars just watch for movement and after you kick one up find a spot in the same general area where you can see well in all areas

    I would go down to your local Army Surplus and buy a set of BDU’s and field jacket. Not because they are camouflaged but the thickness of the material and the pockets you can hold a bunch of ammo!

    Hunting Jackrabbits?

    GO CENTERFIRE!!!

    Good pair of brush pants, kick and stomp the brush and briars. Improved cylinder choke and #5 shot. A good beagle makes it a lot more fun!

    You do not need much to hunt rabbit. Most of the time I walk around until I find a rabbit or a brush pile. I kick the brush pile and hope the rabbit comes running out.
