scroll down on this page, to the 'damage prevention' section:

Jackrabbit, Lepus californicus, L. townsendii, L. americanus, control and biology information

Methinks you need serious fencing...

Good luck; I kinda like the little critters, but I bet I wouldn't if they were eating my backyard!

Let some rattlesnakes set up shop around your yard. They wont bother you as long as you dont bother them, and they want nothing more than to snack on some small jackrabbits.

If you live in a rural area, where there's a lot of open land around you, a .223, or a 22-250 caliber rifle ought to do the job, plus you'll help feed those starving coyotes.

The thumper I know looks nothing like a jackrabbit. He's a soft and cuddly cottontail.
