A question for the "senior" Scouts out there.
In the 1944-45 time frame(I was rather young for my age), Everytime we
went weekend hiking & camping, an older Scout carried a .22 to shoot
rabbets for the meaty part of our meals. As I recall, we always had
rabbet. Our troop was out of Rolando Village, just southeast of La Mesa,
California. Were we in violation of every law known to man & the
Japanese, or was this a common practice in rural troops during WWII?
