Two rabbit feet, also sneaking along.
Back to Elmer sneaking along.
Elmer Fudd, upon finding some rabbit tracks: Oh boy! Wabbit tracks!
Elmer follows the tracks
The rabbit feet, still leaving tracks.
The camera moves up, and we see it is Daffy Duck wearing rabbit feet.
He walks up to Bugs Bunny’s Hole, then looks around, takes off the rabbit feet and calls down the hole.
Daffy Duck, leaning down the rabbit hole: Oh buggsy, buggsy pal, there’s a friend here to see ya!
Daffy jumps up and sneaks away from the hole
Daffy Duck: Survival of the fittetht, and bethideth, it’th fun! Hehehe! (Daffy sneaks behind a large boulder, then peaks out)
Back at Bugs Bunny’s Hole.
Bugs Bunny, peering out of his hole: Did someone knock? (we hear a gun shot, and a bullet streaks past, just frying the edges of Bugs’s ears, he turns and faces where the bullet came from) Ehh, what’s up doc?
Elmer Fudd, streaking up to Bugs, and shoving his gun into Bugs’s mouth: Now I got’cha you – you, Wabbit! Hahahah.
Bugs Bunny, lifting his hand to remove the gun from his mouth, sitting up and starting to eat a carrot while leaning on the gun: Say doc (chew, chew) Are you tryin’ to get yourself in trouble with the law? This aint rabbit hunting season!
Elmer Fudd, looking confused: It’s not?!
Bugs Bunny, pointing at Elmer: No, it’s duck hunting season.

Bugs Bunny: What ever you say (he pulls the gun towards himself) Wabbit.
Daffy Duck, grabbing the gun and pulling it towards himself: Duck, Fire! (The gun shoots, and when the smoke clears we see Daffy with his head on upside down) What’s the matter? Everything’th upthide down!

Back in the woods, Bugs Bunny nails a sign to a tree that says ‘Duck Season Open’, then he sneaks away.
Daffy Duck enters, and reads at the sign.
Daffy Duck: Hmmm, devilishly clever. (he looks around) Uhoh. (he sneaks off in the direction he came)
Elmer Fudd tracks through the wood
Daffy Duck, disguised as a rabbit, leaning on a tree, eating a carrot: Eh, what’s up doc? Having any luck with those ducks? It’s duck season you know.
