    No doubt he was a Good Bird! He will be missed in the Waterfowling World!

    Sad to hear. I really enjoyed watching him on TV. Learned about a rabbit tree on there.

    That's awful news.
    I just talked to him about weeks ago...

    Unexpected.

    Ok. Nobody ask about a rabbit tree but here it is anyway.

    On one of Wade's shows - he hunted with a group of Doctor's. And they make rabbit hunting videos located in the south U.S.

    They had great dogs and lots of stories, hunted cotton tail and "swamper" rabbits.

    6 to 7 rabbits get pretty heavy carried a long way.

    Well these old guys hunted in the brush and open shooting trails. When they got to a trail that they would be coming back to the truck.

    They would hang the harvested rabbits in the lower limbs of the trees along the trail about 5 feet off the ground.

    Finish the hunt, walk back to truck remove rabbits from trees. Sometimes cook some at the truck - looked like a great time.
