Default last rabbit hunt of the season

This is the last weekend of rabbit season so I went out with a guy from work. Carlos is a new hunter, this was his first hunt as a hunter and not just a companion. We went out east along the South Platt River looking for cotton tails. I was using my 12ga and Carlos was using my single shot 20ga. The weather was great and we worked up a pretty good sweat beating the brush. We only saw one rabbit which Carlos didn't get a shot at and I personally didn't even see. But we found a dead weasle which you don't see every day. We also found a bunch of feathers where a coyote got a turkey and a dead coyote where something else got him. I have no way of knowing this for sure but I suspect that a waterfowl hunter on his way to or from the river got the coyote with a load or goose shot. There was lots of coyote scat in the area and I might have to make a trip back out there with the shotgun and some #4 buck. There was also lots of deer sign but we never saw any. Near the end of the day I kicked up a quail but they are out of season so we just watched it fly away, it would have been an easy shot too. I was most disapointed for Carlos that he didn't even get to shoot at a bunny but he had fun and we'll get out earlier next season.
Ask not what your government can do for you. Ask how your government can go away and get out of your life.
