Beagles Lead the Way
By John Campbell, TV9 Sports
Johnson County- Dogs and hunting go hand in hand. Retrievers for ducks, pointers for pheasants, and for rabbits there is nothing better than a baying beagle.
On a recent hunt in Johnson County, Roxy, Jasmine, Sadie and Storm were howling up a storm as they pursued rabbits through the snow and thick underbrush.
Dan Solomon of Cedar Rapids says several years of deep winter snow have had a negative effect on the rabbit population.
But that did not deter our party of Solomon, his wife Kerry, Keith Lowe, Gary McNeese and Gazette Outdoor Writer, Orlan Love.
In the course of a morning hunt, they bagged four rabbits.
They will eventually be used for a wild game feed set for March 13th at the Rut which is located just east of Cedar Rapids on the Mt Vernon Road. Proceeds go to Aiming for a Cure.
