Wild Food

Who would have ever thought…

The farm is on an open acre+ and it’s not uncommon to see wild rabbits and deer wandering around from time to time.  One rabbit had been plaguing the front pasture driving the dogs *insasne*.  After a few attempts to bag it, and some serious reconsideration of marksmenship skills, it was getting very at ease and hanging out when I was outside with Jupiter (my Aussie) even.  Thank goodness for a well trained dog.  Then one night…

So there is a rabbit in my freezer including the pelt.  I was determined to save the hide, but I need to read up on tanning now.  I’m quite excited about the possibility!  I just never thought I’d be harvesting wild game off my own property.  There is going to be a very special rabbit dinner sometime this winter.
