      4s are good for rabbits (even 6s will do in a pinch). Maybe even bring some 2s in the event that a fox or two turn up looking for a rabbit dinner (they'll probably be hanging back a bit unless they're young & stupid, so you may need a tighter choke for them).

    thanks all for the advice. will take the 4's (only have the 4's and the 6's) and pick up some bb's for next trip hopefully the younguns will be coming out of the den by then

    the Mrs. will have her CZ 527 .223 on her so she can have the foxes no fuss.
