Do it. Falcons on rabbits is a lot of fun. Know that you will probably either need to be very fast or run a dog of some type. When I flew my gyr/saker on rabbits the jacks would run, and without a dog present, they would stop and the falcon would lose interest because they were no longer moving.

I had good success with everything except jacks. I entered him on jacks right away and he got walloped a few times and stopped chasing them. However, he would kill anything else that moved, and doubles and triples were common with a few quad days too. It took me a while to get him oriented towards rabbits (I think b/c of the jack incidents in the beginning) but once he figured it out it was really fun.
