Elmer Fudd is out hunting rabbits and Daffy Duck sets his friend Bugs Bunny up to be caught. Bugs doesn't seem too worried and sets out to convince Elmer that it's actually duck season. Bugs gets the upper hand and Daffy is outmaneuvered at every turn.
Did You Know?
The powerful pachyderm that pummels and pounded Elmer Fudd's head once, is based on and was voiced by sometime-secondary Stooge Shemp Howard's first replacement, Joe Besser
. This remark was mentioned in "Toonheads" during a half hour program, that Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck & Elmer Fudd, (all three)are/were in only three cartoons, titled Rabbit Fire
(1951), Rabbit Seasoning
(1952) & Duck! Rabbit, Duck!
(1953). See more

For shame, Doc! Huntin' rabbits with an elephant gun.
That's right, Doc. So why don't you go shoot an elephant?
You do, and I'll give you such a pinch!

Some network TV airings of this cartoon have altered the scene where Elmer shoots Daffy, and Daffy's bill spins. This version cuts from Elmer pointing the gun to a shot of Daffy's bill spinning. The syndicated prints shown on TNT and Cartoon Network in the 80s and early 90s do not eliminate the shooting of the gun. Instead, we see a freeze frame (from another part of the cartoon) showing some scenery. We hear the gun shoot, and we cut back to Daffy's bill spinning. Today, when this cartoon is shown on TV, nothing is changed or cut out. See more
