Killed a quail with my 50-lb crossbow today -- well, actually yesterday, since it's just past 1 AM here -- one of those one-shot wonders from about 30 feet away. I found that when I appear, they scatter, but if I sit down and drink coffee, they start to ignore me.

It turned out to be only a fist-sized chunk of meat, but very tasty, like duck. With all the rains we've been having, the rabbits are well-nourished and hydrated again, thus harder to get.
