    I just leveled up :D

    I decided to learn some new skills.
    So I looked up what a rabbit trail looks like and how to make a basic snare.
    I went to the woods on the far end of my property yesterday, found a rabbit trail, made my snare.
    And today... Dinner!
    I just looked up how to skin and clean it. Now I just have to look up some ways of cooking it so its not tough.

    I reset the snare and put the skin and bits into the freezer.
    Didnt think that run was still active, looked old and overgrown to me.
    Quite proud of my new skill! :D

    Congratulations. Nothing like practice and a tasty reward for a job well done. Snares are a great skill.

    Seem to be proud of yourself. You should be, as I am proud for you.

    I've never tried it but I've saved about a million old guitar strings, thinking they might make good snares...or something...some day.

    Except.....

    You may not want to broadcast that info as it may not be a legal method and may require a hunting lisence.


    Your milage may vary.

    Crossed my mind. As far as I know from when I got my hunting licence its legal in my area.
    I have also heard guitar strings work and apparently brass wire used for hanging pictures is best as it blends in well.

    Getting one is luck. After you have gotten several. Enough for a good rabbit stew. I'll agree you have a new skill.

    It's great that you took the time to look this up and learn. Sad part is no one ever took the time to teach you.

    Good job. Never done it myself but I hear a slow cooker works well.

    Folks, , . . . folks, . . . folks, . . .

    Whoa, . . . don't go gettin in a dither over stewin' that poor critter.

    Throw him in the blue speckled porcelain bucket, . . . enough cold water to cover him, . . . half a handful of salt, . . . leave him overnight.

    Tomorrow, . . . rinse em out real well, . . . pat em dry, . . . cut em up, . . . dim it in milk & egg, . . . roll it in flour, . . . fry it in some hot bacon grease.

    Throw some biscuits in the oven.

    Set some butter out to soften up.

    Get out the sorghum, . . .

    Soon as he is fried up real brown, . . . throw a half dozen eggs into that pan.

    Put it all on a plate, . . . thank the Good Lord for it, . . . chow down.

    If you can't handle it all by yourself, . . . PM me, . . . maybe I can come help you out a bit.

    Stew is for folks what don't got not teeth, . . . too old to digest good Southern fried chicken & cornbread.

    Fried rabbit or fried squirrel is YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM for breakfast.

    May God bless,
    Dwight
    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.

    Wow that really sounds fantastic ill have to try this!

    This is true Chipper. I come from a city family that pretty much keeps to themselves. It seems like im the first to attempt skills like this.
    However my father trapped rabbits as a kid. Funny he didnt mention this till after I got mine lol.
    He looked at the trap and said "effective but over complicated" :p
