"To stand along high on a stump and hear the hounds screaming at the top of their lungs. To see months of training culminate in a spectacular run, and finally see the rabbit coming full throttle straight for you. And to see him almost frozen in an instant of time as the shot connects and he tumbles into three inches of fresh snow; that is what rabbit hunting is all about." It's hard not to agree. Written by one of the country's most renowned cottontail hunters, this guide will give you all the necessary strategies and cottontail facts you need to get out there and experience this fun for yourself. Providing thirty years' worth of trial-and-error methods, tips, and techniques for consistently taking cottontails, this book explains everything from how to hunt rabbits in bad weather and why they "hole up" to training beagles and tips for hunting with a small pack of hounds. Author Dave Fisher has been involved in hunting and the outdoors since he was a child. For over thirty-three years, he has raised and trained hundreds of dogs, mostly beagles, for hunting rabbits.

The successful early adaptations of man involve a complex interplay of biological and cultural factors. There is a rapidly growing number of paleontologists and paleoanthropologists who are concerned with hominid foraging and the evolution of hunting. New techniques of paleoanthropology and taphonomy, and new information on human remains are added to the traditional approaches to the study of past human hunting and other foraging behavior. There is also a resurgence of interest in the early peopling of the New World. The present book is the result of the Ninth Annual Spring Systematics 10, 1986, in the Symposium, on the Evolution of Human Hunting, held on May Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. We are grateful to the NSF (grant no. BNS 8519960) for partial financial support in arranging the symposium. In preparation of this volume we have received assistance from many people, particularly the reviewers of individual chapters; it is impossible to name them all. We must however single out Drs. Richard G. Klein and Glen H. Cole for their encouragement at various stages of preparation of the symposium and this volume, and for being a help to the anthropological knowledge. Zbigniew Jastrzebski assisted with the figures and Paul K. Johnson diligently typed the camera-ready copy, and patiently coordinated the endless book-making chores.
