Rabbits (Getting rid of them)

Other than blowing their heads off (which homeowners tend to dislike) how do you guys get rid of rabbits. They have been really eating up some of my customers plants. I have tried some stuff from Home Depot but it doesn't seem to work.

A rabbit trap works great. Then just relocate them.

There is a season for that. I'd rather eat a california rabbit that a wild one any day. Way more meat. You should chech out that new harvest bar for harvesting rabbits its a beast. quickest way to kill a rabbit. Just put it up in your garage on some 2x4's.

take the axe ,make the rabbits ass bigger with it then chop off his legs .Twist his neck untill it brakes ,grab it by the ears and slap it on the ground and the meat will literally come flying out of the skin.No more mess than hanging the bugger on the wall ,chances are you have an axe already ,and if you cant do it in 15 seconds or less ,you have serious problems .
