From TibbyH :

A true masterpiece of animated cartoon comedy. The Chuck Jones "Hunter Twilogy" is already a marvelous group of Warner Bros cartoons, but the conclusion to this great series is, in my opinion, the cream of the crop. Chuck Jones and Mike Maltese were the greatest paring in animated comedy, and this short shows off their skills considerably. I love how desperate Daffy is to make sure that he's not the one who gets hunted after. He'll remove signs, try to confuse Elmer, and trick Bugs all so he can preserve himself. The greedy, egotistical Daffy Duck is my favorite interpretation as it gives off the most personality and allows him to be more human. He's not just a gimmick or a staple of 30s animation, he's a true character. Bugs and Daffy were born to star together. They share a natural chemistry in every short they're pair in. And in this cartoon (and the Hunter Twilogy in general), the way they play off each other is entertaining. But the highlight of the short is the hilarious gag to when Bugs Bunny changes the hunting season and Elmer still shoots Daffy regardless of what season it is. As far as I'm concerned, this is one of the best comedy cartoons ever created. I can't get enough, and I'm gonna go watch it again.
