rabbits will use the same tracks and runs to get to there feeding areas. these areas are easy to spot as there will be holes coming out of the cover and the grass will be flatter where they have walked, also if they are young and where talking its day tim they will not travel far from there sets. the best times are last light and dawn times for seeing rabbits, they will be out all day at different times but dawn and dusk is when the most come out, so get yourself hid and just wait, you will not need to bait an area if your already seeing them, as they have already found a good food source.

Kind regards
Jack

Yea, my grass. Lol - I believe they live under my shed as that is where my dog has his head 3/4 of the time. He often forgets to potty because he's so interested in these rabbits.

Just shot this little guy last night. Wasn't planning on shooting a bunny. I was out with my 100-400L trying to shoot some backyard birds, but they seemed to be on vacation or something. I was about to pack it in when this guy showed up. I was able to snap about five shots before he ran away.

Ok, seriously, I find that (furry) bunnies at my place totally ignore me if I'm on my riding mower -running or stopped. One step off the mower & they're gone. So, get your mower out, park it where you think they'll show up, Get your camera, have a seat & wait. Good luck.

Make a comfortable blind and sit out and wait for them. If you have a tripod, put that 300mm zoom on it and get some shots. Watch the light, keep the sun at 90 degrees and keep the wind in your face. Be vewy, vewy quiet.

And be vewy,vewy careful, they sometimes disguise themselves as ducks.

Believe me you do not need any other food stuffs to encourage rabbits if there already feeding then they have all the food they need. Just consentrate on finding a suitable postion to take your pics from, Dawn and Dusk this is the secret. Take it from someone who has been hunting them for over 25 years.

Jack

Mine mostly come out at night. But I have seen the big one a few times during the daytime. I have my yard set up for birds, so there is a lot of bird food around. Rabbits love corn and millet. And you can't see that in the grass. But again, mostly at night, and it's hard to get good pics at night.
