212Hunting the wasically wabbit can take several forms and we'll explore two of the most interesting on this episode of Georgia Outdoors.

First, the Georgia Outdoors crew joins the Mid-Georgia Beagle Club to learn more about why beagles make such excellent rabbit hunters. Through a series of progressive pack field trials, these lovable hounds are put to the test, competing against each other for the number one spot. But not only do these beagles make fantastic rabbit hunters, they also function as wonderful outdoors companions for kids and adults alike.

Next we'll join the Georgia Falconry Association for their annual Field Meet to learn how falconers and birds of prey hunt together. We'll join Master Falconer Tom Blackburn and his son Brandon with their cast of harris hawks to learn why the relationship between hawk and human is unique and special.
