There isnt an easy or productive way to control rabbits trapping. In winter, trail setting is a good method with footholds when you find activity. Baiting isnt a real good method of trapping. Air rifle removal is what we do for immediate control in most commercial work where feasable.

If you search the archives we have covered rabbit trapping in years past. You may find some information to answer some of your questions.

IMO trapping rabbits with a leg hold is the LAST thing I would do. The leg bones in a rabbit are very easy to break. All you will have the next day is a rabbit foot.

And it wouldn't be a lucky rabbit's foot either.

Night time air rifle would be my approach.

In Minnesota we pile them up with a stabilized 110 in the trail with a carrot on the trigger

Unfortunately in my area of Wisconsin, a 110 with a carrot would pile up a lot of gray squirrels, not to mention the raccoons running around with steel collars.

I can't get the squirrels to touch anything here! The only problem I have is the crows if the traps are not checked early enough.

I use my bottom edge set ups with a brick most of the time. Otherwise I chain to a tree. I was more worried about the fox and coyotes stealing trap and all!

I have found that rabbits really enjoy Timothy hay. I put a small pile outside the trap door and then a big pile in the back of the trap.

Regular rabbit food from Walmart has mixed results.
