Default How about those rabbits

I seem to remember that Calvin wanted to start a thread about rabbits but it never got started, so I'll kick one off. I think rabbits on Parkers are somewhat uncommon and this could be interesting to see how they look. We all have seen the infamous "flying Turnip" looking Parker birds; now lets look over the rabbits and see how they stack up.

Here are some rabbits on a B to start things off. Click to enlarge for a closer look.

You're up Calvin, lets add yours to the mix....

Wonder if the same fellow did all the rabbits every once and a while he got a wild hare. This gun is a 1881. What year is your B? Whats on the floor and the other side plate of your gun Robin?

Mine was made in 1879. I have posted pictures of this gun before, sorry for repeating the same old pictures. The other side has a dog pointing two quail and the bottom has a single flying "turnip" goose/duck. But, the guard has two dogs and a jumping rabbit.

The picture quality isn't the best, the animals are hard to see unless you click to enlarge.

I believe there is a D lifter with a bunny in your albums.

Rabbits- that was a surprise to me! Any other small odd game? Squirrels? Racoons?
Like they say in the PGCA- "never say never".

I assume the signature is of William H. Gough? Very nice.
