  • Hunting with rabbit-tracking dogs

    Last week, Ed Heckle called to ask if I'd like to go rabbit hunting on his "two mules farm." Why "two mules?" I have no idea! To my knowledge, Ed neither currently owns nor has ever owned two mules!
    And, Ed no longer has beagles and neither do I. But, we have a mutual friend who does.
    So, on a pleasant morning, which was so much unlike a "typical" January day, we hooked up with Lonnie Moore and his four bunny busting beagles.
