I really want to see someone in their back yard shooting at rabbits with a blowgun.

OOF is currently in Australia. I'll give him a pass for the blowgun comment. :)

A quarter stick of dynamite under the shed should clear your problem.

I have the same problem, but with groundhogs. Twisted my ankle in a 'hog hole cutting the grass last weekend. Aside from shooting them, I'd like to eradicate them.

I didn't expect this and I enjoyed it.

When I was younger, our cats kept rabbits away from the garden quite well. Leave out some milk, get a stray cat, release cat towards rabbits, clean-up rabbit parts.

Groundhogs have destroyed my mom's backyard. They don't have any holes in her actual yard, but the tunnels they have dog have left the yard completely uneven.

I guess it kind of is, but boo for not getting it entirely.

Both Worms and that post reference Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Your homework is now to go see that movie.

Never shot any rabbits. I don’t garden or anything like that, and otherwise they don’t do much damage and have never ticked me off. I’ve shot plenty of groundhogs, though. And alcohol and guns never mix.

lol, I can see someone buzzing really well trying to shoot a fast moving rabbit. You're right, not a good idea.

I used to have a chocolate lab who HATED groundhogs and hunted them all of the time. When she passed away those little ***** came out from hiding like they knew she was gone. You can get a sprinkler system that causes vibrations in the ground. They're afraid of what they percieve to be bigger predators. Or call Bill Murray. He had a lot of ideas for that gopher.
