I have tried hunting for rabbits on public land in Montgomery County and have had no luck. I don't use dogs (don't have any). Anyone have any suggestions? I like hunting this time of year but hate getting skunked all the time. TIA!!

90 % of montgomery county is a no fire zone except for the northern end.

Do any good in Charles County? Never been there. This Myrtle Grove public land and target range, are you allowed to sight in rifles? Can you just go there and plink? Does it cost anything and is it "supervised"??

myrtle grove is a 100 yard range you have to get a permet but it is not bad $5.00 for 1 day or $10.00 for a year with a hunting licens. you can shoot all but the biggest bore guns. They have severl fields for rabbit hunters and it is not to bad for squirrel and deer.

I just went to the range for the first time on Saturday, hit the rifle section, then shot some clays. I havent had a chance to hunt there, what animals populate the area that are worth shooting?

They have rabbits, lots of squirrels and I have seen clean cut ( not mashed out) deer tracks as big as my whole hand and not very many hunters hunt it. I have even seen turkeys.
