Rabbit Hunting Camp March 22-24 Near Bagdad

  1. We'll be out there again this year up near Bagdad for some camping, rabbit hunting, and all around good times.

    Would love to see anyone and everyone to join us to hit some of the best cottontail hunting spots in the state (and country for that matter).

    Camp is about 15 miles southeast of Bagdad and we will be camping March 22 to March 24.
  2. I am interested

    I would be interested in tagging along. I will note the dates and make sure I have the time available. Thanks for planning ahead!!!

    Sounds like a plan!
    Same place?

  4. yes, I was thinking of camping at a spot beyond Bagdad just past the mine, but that is even further away from phoenix, So same place is good.

    Is the camp an open invitation? If so, I would like to bring my family up. What facilities are there? Is it strictly tent camping? Can RV's make it to the camp grounds? Will there be any kind of classes for kids or guided hunts for youths? I have a lot of questions sorry.

    Please let me know.

  6. :welcome:
    Open invitation of course. It's primitive camping. There is no problem for RVs to make it on these roads. I can certainly provide guided rabbit hunts. Last time I gave instruction on how to clean a rabbit and tips on how to find rabbits.

    There is always a lot to learn about rabbit hunting at these camps that I can assure you. Not just from me but from all the hunters that come out.

  8. I wanted to go really bad last year but couldn't make it happen. This year, I have a commitment on that Saturday, but if I can work it out, I'll be there this year! This would be perfect for my 9 year old to get some experience!
  9. Caliber Recomendations?

    Hey all, I am new here and am excited for an opportunity to attend a camp like this. I plan on bringing my 15 year old son who has been wanting to go rabbit hunting for some time.

    I have Ruger 10/22 with a scope and will plan on bringing that, but need a second rifle. What is a better caliber? .17 HMR or .22 WMG? I would love to hear your thoughts.

  10. I prefer the .22 mag. Less meat damage, rounds are still plentiful for both. Do you own either or are u considering buying? A S&W M&P 15-22 is a great bunny gun with the Nikon P22 scope.
