My favorite type of hunt was for rabbits and pheasants when I was a kid on Long Island. My family owned 2 farms and rabbits were a great pastime in the winter months. We didn't use dogs down there, we just beat the green catbriers. Neither Dad or I ever used a gun bigger than a 410. I still have my old Topper jr. and still use it. Great times back then. Now ther's nothing but buildings and houses on our old hunting grounds.
