Hello everyone, I'm new here and new to rabbit hunting. Got my first pup and I'm really enjoying training him as the field behind my house is crawling with rabbits and he is starting to get on the scent, open up and follow the scent pretty good, no races yet though he is only 4 months. I was wondering what everybody tends to prefer for shotguns and loads to use for rabbits. I've got an old winchester mod 24 sxs in 16ga I use for grouse and pheasants in MI but its been really hard to find 16Ga shells lately. Ive got 2 boxes of #6 shot heavy pheasant loads which might get me through the season but I wonder if they will tear em up too bad? ive also got an old rossi single barrel 12ga that i shoot well and i can probably find trap loads and light field loads pretty easily. I love this site and have learned alot already, thanks.
