First Rabbit of 2009

Today after I lost a set of fox tracks that I was following, I decided to walk through a nearby brushy spot that seems to always have a rabbit in it. So, pulling out my Heritage Arms Rough Rider .22 revolver, I walked about half way through. Then a rabbit jumped about 5 feet away from me I fired twice. After making my way through the brush to where I had shoot at it, I found the rabbit laying there dead. The amazing part of it is that later when I was skinning the rabbit out I found that I had actually hit it with both shots–once in the front shoulder and once in the head. Normally I have enough trouble hitting a stationary tin can with that gun, let alone a moving target!
