Welcome, va hunter. Know what ya mean about people thinking something was wrong if they didn't hear gunfire. When my brother bought a neglected farm in rural NY state, he had me "clean out" all the rabbits/woodchucks who had moved in over the preceeding years, as well as culling our cat population when necessary. Out the back window with a scoped .250 Savage (what else?). Only jackrabbits turn white during winter (if I have the species right). NY bunnies stand out like a sore thumb on white snow and twiggy, leafless trees when they are small, brown, and round. BOOM! 87 grain, .257 bullets @ 3,000 fps = red mist on white snow.

And when I wasn't killin' things, well, I had to do load development, right? And my brother didn't mind. "Nothing wrong with letting the neighbors know we're well armed. Helps us fit in."
