    After some fresh snow go out and walk some clearing edges, woods roads, tote roads and back roads look for the tracks and when you've got a good spot with alot of sign, you can walk the roads and kind of still hunt it. You are going to want to have a good eye cause they'll be hard to spot at distance but if you do spot them a bit away and they don't spook you can crack em with a .22 to good effect. Harder to hunt them this way with a shotgun but it can be done. The key is to find where they are and try to sneak up on them. I've had luck driving roads and spooking them sometimes, you gotta be real quick hopping out to get a shot off.

      Fence lines offer some great action in Ontario in the winter time-Usually the heavy fence rows that are quite overgrown are excellent spots-biggest problem is the the cover sometimes gives the advantage to the bunny rather than the hunter.If you have the opportunity to double up with someone on these fence rows hunting can be quite productive as a driver and stander or go it it alone.
