Don't forget that bows are classed as firearms in N.B.
Not disputing this, but can you point me to where this is mentioned? I was fairly certain that a projectile had to be over 1000 fps for this designation.

Under the federal firearms act, a bow isn't classed as a firearm, but in the N.B. wildlife act it is.

Quoted from the N.B. Fish and Wildlife Act

"firearm" means any device from which any shot, bullet or other missile can be discharged and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, includes a rifle, shotgun, pellet gun, air gun, pistol, revolver, spring gun, crossbow or longbow;

"bow" means
a. a longbow,
b. a recurve bow, or
c. a compound bow with one or more wheels,
but does not include a crossbow.

Pepper Poper

Put a tablespoon of black pepper on a large low lying rock.
Hide about 15 yards away behind bushes etc. Use camo.
When the rabbit sneezes after smelling the pepper they hit their heads on the rock.
This stuns them.
Run up quickly and finish them off humanely without leaving any blood.

Quickly put in burlap camo bag and hide again.
Repeat when next rabbit comes along.
