Tonight I had rabbit, and rabbit food.. Bunny that I shot on New Year's Day slow cooked in a batch of celery, carrots, tomatoes, califlower, and onions.. Pretty darned tasty..

We had freezing rain the other day.. I don't like freezing rain.. It's winter, and it should be SNOW!!! The trails are closed due to the lack of snow..

Very cool, if I bunny hunt which isn't very often these days I like them roasted and served with poke salad, butter and salt. The butter and salt are the only things I can't get in the woods. I always take salt with me if I am camping.

If anyone reads this and thinks they may try poke salad you should know that it must be parboiled twice to be safe and the water thrown away and then cooked again.. or it can be poisonous. It tastes good, a lot like asparagus and has the same texture and color. It's great with rabbit and makes a satisfying meal.

It's nice to know there is another bunny hunter here.

Don't know if I've ever seen those before.. Hmmm

As far as hunting, if I'll eat it, I'll hunt it..

Yes, I'm the weird guy who'll hunt a racoon and eat it, but doesn't hunt ducks because I don't like the taste..

Squirrel hunting, the most fun hunting I have ever had.. no pressure, all fun and they taste great.

I thought it was revolting the first time I was told about eating squirrel.

I don't like bear meat but as I sometimes encounter them when riding my bike here it makes me feel better to eat some once in a while. I don't like duck either.. like bear meat, to greasy. But as I don't feel threatened by ducks I don't feel the need to eat them.

I love squirrel and squirrel hunting.. My .32 Thompson Cherokee rifle is my favorite squirrel rifle, too..

As far as bear, I've had good and bad.. Bad's pretty bad, but the good was pretty good.. Never know until you're butchering..

However you cook it....remove the pecker. Nothing worse than a plate of food with a pecker in the middle of it

I've only had rabbit twice, at AF survival school. It was not the best, but it was also cooked in a coffee can, w/o any seasoning. I could see it tasting real good if it was prepared right.
