Your nephew and I did our share of rabbit hunting back in the day. Before we had our drivers licenses either one of my parents or one of his would take us out just a little further than the places you are talking about, or out just north of Summit and dump us off for a few hours before coming back to get us. I remember he had a pretty slick looking little pump .22. I think it was actually his dads. I doubt my nephews that are around that age now do that. They would probably just walk around in the brush for a few hours and hardly see a thing to shoot at.We used to hunt rabbits out by Lund Highway back in the mid 70's. Along with Midvalley Road, behind Enoch, and out on Minersville Hwy.
Our best spots were where the turd whirler is now, and out on the Clark farm on Minersville Hwy north of Enoch.
All the places that are subdivisions are now
Always used .22 rifles at first. Slayed them for a long time.
I finally started taking my dad's Colt .22 pistol just for kicks. Got pretty good with that pistol. Used to piss my buddy off that I could get as many bunnies with that as he did with his .22 rifle.
That's why I still shoot pistols pretty well, I'm guessing. Was a lot of fun.
Don't go out like that much anymore. Have been with the grandkids a few times. But, don't see the rabbits like we used to. And we have to go a lot further out of town than we used to. Use that to teach them gun safety and about hunting with others. A couple of them are good shots already. It's still enjoyable.
