Armed only with a club most of the fellows were not from around here and half way believed them, some did not!. then “It snowed”, and all said “lets go rabbit hunting. We’ll get our clubs!!-Not sure what was going to happen, off they went, after a hilarious trip the got 13 rabbits and were heros!!. the mess hass cleand and cook all the rabbits.
