I have been bow hunting couple of times in city gardens for pest control. Rabbits are big problem there and our bowhunting club have license to hunt there. Only blunts, judopoints or G5 small game heads are allowed no broadheads. Hunting in garden you have to be extreme careful cause there´s always some people walking around even early mornings.
Last sunday I drowe there grabbed my trusty longbow, 2 arrows and new 5.11 shoulder bag. Weather was cloudy but surprisingly warm about +7 degrees in november! It was still dark and we had also flashlights allowed, but I didn´t use any still. My friend had flashlight attached at his compoundbow.
I saw all together 7 rabbits, but they were very alarmed all the time and mostly saw them too far meand over 20m away. There was only one chance around 15m distance where I saw rabbit behind bush and there was clear line of sight through small hole in bush. I took aim, but too slow, rabbit moved a bit and shot was impossible.
No shots, no game but I enjoyed that few early morning hours.
