    Hey all. I have a bit of a problem here and need some advice. I bought a 9 mo old male about 3 weeks ago. I want to get him started,but can't bounce a rabbit to save my life. It's like they have all vanished. Heck the one that was hanging around the lane has disapeared. Myself and a couple friends have been trying to box trap one to no avail either. I'm getting worried. I need to get this guy started pretty soon I figure,and mother nature isn't cooperating at all. What should I do? Thanks a bunch,Rockdog :headscratch:.

    Find you one of those funny bunnies. I have started every dog I have on them Florida Cottontails, Missouri Cottontails, or San Juans. Put a collar on it with some weedeater twine and let the pup chase it around the yard. I have about 1/4 acre pen I start mine in on those kind of rabbits.
