I've got a few rabbits at least they always hit something. Problem is I can watch him work an area for 30 minutes no rabbit but I've walked in and jumped it before. He never barks outa place, always a hot rabbit there. There has been days I've gone and he not bark and that's ok, but if he barks he needs ro produce, especially when it's a trend.Hows your rabbit population ammo ?
Keep in mind theres no dog that can jump the rabbit if the rabbits no there . I normally always find some rabbits but their sure not thick as they once was and 30 min of hard hunting without a jump is not all that uncommon around here
