Wabbit Watch


This week I've noticed not one but two of the furry little bastards loitering around the perimeter of the garden. And where there are two now, there's sure to be lots more in the very near future.

Well, forearmed is, er, forearmed. After years of thinking about it, I'm finally ordering the classic Daisy Red Rider. First sign of unauthorized entry and I start shooting.

Say your pwayers, you wascally wabbits!

Hah, I'd be afraid if I were a critter in your yard! I had a damn woodchuck go and eat one of my sapling trees out back, so I think I understand why they call 'em that, and I'm beginning to wish I were better prepared to handle them (let alone living in a rural area where I'd be allowed to handle them myself...).

My husband spent some time research the city and state laws as to whether or not he could shoot rabbits and squirrels in our yard with a BB gun. I think he concluded that since state law trumps city, he could shoot animals stealing his crops. On the other hand, I'm not sure I want him to be the test case for that proposition.

Well, Fairfax County allows bow-hunting of deer in our neighborhood, so I reckon this can't be frowned upon too much. Plus, I don't expect our neighbors will mind.

I wish you much success...and then you can come and shoot the raccoons in my yard!

Bugs: O mighty warrior of great fighting stock, Might I enquire to ask, eh, what's up doc?

Elmer: I'm going to kill the rabbit!

Bugs: Oh mighty warrior t'will be quite a task, How will you do it, might I enquire to ask?

Elmer: I will do it with my spear and magic helmet!

Actually, I prefer the Little Beaver to the Red Rider myself. I got both from the Daisy Museum last year on Buy A Gun Day and found that the RR's little brother was much more accurate and plenty powerful enough to get the job done...
