Am I right in thinking that there's no difference between taking quarry with the gun or the bird as far as the seasons go?

Nothing to do with how they are taken, all to do with WHEN they are allowed to be taken Ash. In saying that, I believe there are specific rules that apply to deer, that they may only be shot using a rifle ?

That's what I though Stewart but I thought it was worth clarifying!

So what does that mean the counties that are not on the list of prohibition of taking game on Sundays and Christmas day it is legal to take game in these counties which there are a few ?

"In England and Wales no game may be killed or taken in any county on Sunday or Christmas Day. Game for the purposes of this section means pheasant, partridge, red grouse, black grouse and hare. Orders prohibiting the shooting of wildfowl on Sundays made under sections 2 and 13 of the Protection of Birds Act 1954 still in existence are in the following counties (or parts of counties in existence before the 1974 local authority re-organisation): Anglesey, Brecknock, Caernarvon, Carmarthen, Cardigan, Cornwall, Denbigh, Devon, Doncaster, Glamorgan, Great Yarmouth County Borough, Isle of Ely, Leeds County Borough, Merioneth, Norfolk, Pembroke, Somerset, North and West Ridings of Yorkshire. In Scotland there are no statutory restrictions on the killing of game on Sunday or Christmas Day but it is not customary to do so. Wildfowl species may not be shot on Sunday or Christmas Day.

Read it again David - you cannot kill game anywhere in England and Wales on a Sunday or Christmas Day. The list of counties refers only to the shooting of wildfowl.

I live in SW Ontario Canada, hunted the cotton tailed rabbit as my primary prey this is what I found. The legal take is six per day, which I never exceeded. The season runs to February 28th, I quit hunting them at the end of January because I found the does after this were pregnant with young so I wasn't killing one bunny rather I was killing my future prey. Add predation especially the increase of Feral cats, nighttime felines let out & coyotes, not only will the bunny population drop but may even disappear.
