From the Dec. 11, 1924 Campbell County Record:

In spite of the disagreeable day, Sunday, a number of Gillette’s Legionaries went on a jack rabbit hunt. That they found good shooting is putting it mildly, there were millions of them, and there would have been a bigger kill if more had turned out. Although an exact count was not kept it is estimated that the handful of men that went out killed over 300.
