I was curious of opinions about mowing paths and trails in running enclosures . I’m of the mindset to let the grass grow the first couple / few months of the breeding season. Then cut / alternate paths to enable some grasses to remain higher for the young bunnies to hide in while they feed. Seems like it would make sense , rather than walk a golf course type atmosphere around the running pen. I recently cut trails at home , and some 30 acres of hay. The small rabbits don’t run , but hide and hunker down , only to become victims of the hay bine / mower. Next question for any of you hay guys , does anyone employ any techinque to try and flush rabbits ahead of the mower ? Several yrs ago , I bolted a long 2x4 parallel off a hanger , to kind of rake the grass ahead of the mower. It def saved some fawns and rabbits , but took an awful long time to mow a field. Jumping off the tractor with large boat net , snagging bunnies and faws. Some u simply got a spot on , and reached in to grab. Other times would work my way across , forcing all adult rabbits to move laterally. When that last row of hay was laid down , several bunnies would bust out , run across the open into the woods. Seems like no way around sacrificing some in the name of putting up the hay.
