Traditional Bowhunting for Rabbits – Tradlife – Small game hunting – Longbow bowhunting


I was sneaking up on a rabbit with a black head, sitting beneath some apple trees I can see another rabbit despite of what happened still sitting to the right Rabbits is not so active during the day but we are trying anyway Morten have spotted some rabbits from a distance where the field starts he decides to try, getting in position Even though the camo is great, and your moving slow its not an easy task, to get in bow range Of course the rabbits are gone, when Morten arrives But he´s in good cover, so a rabbit appears shortly after “come on” “slam!” Thomas and I, are watching from a distance we cant quite understand, why Morten did not taking the shot it is just infront of him! But recordings from a distance is deceiving and Morten is telling that the rabbit was much further away and he couldent draw hes bow, because of some branches I dont know what happened for him at this distance, it looked like the rabbit was standing just infront of him how about you? did you see anything? I saw those rabbits infront of Morten I cant understand why he did´nt shoot how about this morning, did you see any rabbits? There wasent that many maybe 10 rabbits or so Lets call Morten back Lets hope we have more luck later yes we have good spots, this evening i think so to Thomas is sneaking up on a rabbit sitting at the bank of the pond But like it happens 9 out of 10 times the rabbit saw him first was it gone? yep! Morten could see a rabbit on the other side of this living fence with slow movements he´s able to draw the bow what happenend? something you wanna talk about? there was this rabbit on the other side just below on the other side there was some kind of a tunnel i could shoot through but it was apperently not all clear for the arrow so you hit a branch? yeah I hit a branch and the rabbit was not harmed I have placed my self a bit early out here by the ocean with the wind in my face, its a good place to be cause later im going that way and not many places can compeat with this view and the sounds to hear out here I got two rabbits this morning and it happend a little fast and we have been close early´er today but couldent make it happen but this evening i have this feeling i think it will be good hopefully it will The rabbits are shy and 9 out of 10 times, the rabbit is gone before you take the first step The rabbits is nervous and shy and even though Thomas is moving with mouse steps He´s spottet when he draw his bow What happened this evening? well, I was going around the pond because of the wind and even though i was walking out on the plowed field about 40 meters from the pond the rabbits was stamping of me all the way in But i was getting in place at the same spot as early´er today But i was way to close to the rabbits hive I have a rabbits hive in front of me and they are coming out the holes all the time i tell you all the time, no breaks But I was turning the wrong way to shoot so i desides to turn my self around and when that is done the rabbits is coming out from the right side instead and that continues all evening Right, left, right, left he he! Its always like that yes always always always in the opposite direction they always comes out the wrong place always ohh shit, he he thats typical so tomorrow, ill bring an office chair he he he then im always turning in the right direction he he he yes ha ha ha i told you there was many up there yeah i saw that those rifle hunters there was impact at the field in the pond a rabbit is sitting a little distance away I planned to get a little closer But instantly when i move, it gets nervous even though im moving slowly forward, im not getting in the angle of the camera so i decided to take the shot Even though its difficult to see, the shot was perfect the rabbit is down, but gets up again and ending its life, by running to the right at full speed im following the rabbit with my eyes but i didnt get the camera on the rabbit i could see him take shelter in the tall grass, about 50 meters away lets find him I think i got him he´s lying over there I could see that i got him but he was just running at full speed but he was slowing down and then he was seeking hide in the tall grass, right here but no wonder there wasent much blood left in him I have about one hour left to hunt in this morning the weather is fantastic the rabbits is very shy and its difficult to get close enough but its fantastic just to be out here beautiful weather i dont know if you can feel it on the video the fog in the background I hope you enjoy´ed this film and in the future, there will be more so stay tuned tanks for watching see you This hunting trip is finished but when we are about to meet with the others I see Morten coming down the field It looks like he also got one whats up? whats that your carrying ? Thats the rabbit i didnt get the other day If you remember the shot i took yesterday through the living fence a tunnel, and a rabbit behind it In “Eriks” garden, like we are used to call it yesterday there was a branch in the way But i was in the same place this morning so i was keeping watch with the hive but there wasent any activity but up behind some mirabelle trees there was some rabbits i was trying to sneak up on em taking cover behind some other trees getting closer and closer with the recurve setup, i need to get close so i was getting in to about 16 meters i was about to draw back but no, i want to get closer two rabbits was already gone but one rabbit was sticking around so i was sneaking about 3 to 4 meters closer i was about 11 – 12 meters from the rabbit now and it had the broadside to me, unaware of anything so i was drawing the bow back and released the arrow it went in behind the front leg ferfect shoot he was just turning around and made some kicks i was getting hold of him quickly but he wasent running anywhere So when Erik is counting hes rabbits there will miss one I guess there will be a Merzedes star in this rabbits heart What broadhead did you use? thats a Montec a G5 ? yes a G5 Montec this one is very sharp yes perfect for this purpose cause its a good idea to use sharp broadheads for the rabbits not blunts it was a pass through yes i can see that it turned out pretty well Congrats thanks I got one as well, this morning well congrats thanks he he he lets go down and get some breakfast
