In this, the third and final installment of the Bugs/Daffy/Elmer "hunting" trilogy begun in "Rabbit Fire", we see Daffy uttering such phrases as "Well, I guess I'm the goat" and "Brother, am I a pigeon", and Bugs holds up signs telling Elmer it's the appropriate season(s) in question.
Did You Know?
Bugs Bunny stuck out four signs to lead Elmer Fudd to shoot Daffy Duck. (They are all in capital letters). In order they are, 1st GOAT SEASON OPEN; 2nd, DIRTY SKUNK SEASON; 3rd, PIGEON SEASON; 4th and last, MONGOOSE SEASON. See more
Towards the beginning of the feature, Bugs makes it clear that this story takes place in the middle of January. However, at the end, when he comes to Elmer posing as the Game Warden, he tells him it's baseball season. In reality, baseball season doesn't begin until April.
In reality, Bugs then goes to Daffy and asks him "what season is it really?" betraying the fact that telling Elmer it was baseball season was just another trick. See more

In syndicated versions the sequence where Daffy Duck gets his beak repeatedly blown off his face by Elmer Fudd's shotgun at pointblank range has been almost entirely cut out. See more
