I'm jealous, I'd like to have someone to show me how to go about doing the bunny hunt and processing...

I nearly ran over a rabbit in the car this morning - only just missed it. i hate the thought of running them over, but can shoot them without a tremor.

Strange eh?

Yet a nice clean road kill means you are not picking bits of shot out of your meal later on. Know what you mean though.

Start on that pheasant that comes and stands outside your kitchen. Mind you, there won't be anything edible left if you shoot it with a 12 bore from that range, but at least you'll be sure of hitting it.


The one that Ruby hand feeds do you mean...

Lanber.

It's not even mine, and I remember the name.

Id love to share notes Cathryn. Although I saw some bunnies whilst out on patrol last night and thought "ahhh... I mean ...food"

Good job Frewen can do the messy bit.

There are a few ''how to's'' about processing, jointing and rabbit recipes in the articles section.

I skinned one yesterday. 2 in the fur at the farmers market. Mind you I might pay the extra 1 next time and save myself the faff and OH the trauma.

Well the bloke in the local gun shop was next to useless and more than a little rude.....

However, I think I know enough to kit myself out now but am going to borrow first and maybe go on wednesday. I hope it is warm...
