Rabbits, hares are local lagomorphs
I will never forget the first time I saw a jackrabbit. At the time I was no more than 8 or 9 years old. It happened during my first squirrel hunt as my father and I scoured grandfather Klemek's oak filled woodland. The animal sprang from a brush pile like a kangaroo and bounded through the sparse woods while dodging and jumping in incredibly wild and leggy leaps.
