Default Better Rabbit trap for those with rabbit problems

It sounds as if you have more of an ecology problem. Since you are out in the
country, you need to encourage predators, such as owls & hawks. You might also
try removing surrounding underbrush. Your local agricultural agent might be
helpful.

We have coyotes, red-tailed hawks, and barn owls locally, resulting in
a well-controlled population of rabbits (and a vanishingly short life
expectancy for stray cats). Also the occasional cougar, but those are
trouble.
