Excerpt from Louisiana Conservationist, Vol. 19: Louisiana Wild Life and Fisheries Commission; January-February, 1967
Most hunters use the little beagle hound in the pursuit of rabbits. They are small and can go almost anywhere the rabbit runs. Beagles are inexpensive to keep and fairly easy to train.
There are about twenty-five organized beagle clubs in Louisiana that have a total membership of near one thousand. Most of these clubs sponsor one or more field trials annually. In the various club activities cottontails are the main rabbit used. This is partly because they are more elusive and difficult to chase than swampers.
In summary, huntable numbers of rabbits can not survive for long periods if good cover is not present regardless of the amount of food avail able. But, this has been a good season and it's not too late to go rabbit hunting.
Widespread clearing of land such as is shown here is the end of rabbit hunting in the area. After the dozed trees and brush are burned such an area as this will be complete devoid of rabbits for all time unless it is removed from agriculture and allowed to grow up in grasses, shrubs and trees.
