    I'm talking with a guy on another Forum about hunting Rabbits with a High Caliber Muzzleloader.Told him Head shots would be fine.He says it don't matter all they save is the Legs :eek: I told him that this POed me off that it was a waste of good meat.

    He says there is no meat on the Back of a Rabbit :confused: I told him there is just as much meat on a Back as there is on a Hind Leg if not more.He then tells me the Rabbits in Nothern Missouri don't have that much meat on them.

    Ok I know I'm[​IMG]

    I have no idea how to get through to this Guy.

    I have posted this before and I like it better than frying,put the rabbits in electric skillet on low and cover to the top of rabbit with carlo rossi sangria wine and slow cook turning frequently to avoid drying out.When they are done all your wine turns to like a thick,sticky barbq sauce,man this making me hungry,works real well on pork chops to:cheers:

    We rip out the front legs first. Just rip them out. Place in bowl. then proceed cleaning them. What you have left is the entire back with back legs attached and two front legs when you're done. the neck area is cut off along with some of the front shoulders. We try and keep as much as we can.

    Some people are not open to suggestions. Not much you can do.
    The part of the back with the ribcage does not have much meat, but the lower back with the stomach flap trimmed off is about as good as it gets!! If he does not save that, it is definately his loss!

    MMMM... I can actually smell it cooking. Now I am starved!!!

    the rabbits in northern mo are bigger too.

    We cut the stomach flap off also. You can cut the back into two piece. Fry that up. Its the best part. So nice and tender.

    You know I just did a search on YouTube.Man them people waste way too much time.Rabbits are the easiest to clean of all Game.I pull the Head off,pop the Guts out soon as I kill it.Get home make a slit across the Back,pull the Hide both ways,cut the Feet and Tail off.Make sure the inside is good and clean.Cut Legs off,split the Ribs,cut t the Back in two just behind the Ribs.Ready to be cooked up and no waste.

    Do Squirrel basically the same,just tuff enough that you can't pull the Head off or Pop the Guts out.But like I say basically the same.

    Oneshot....no point in arguing with folks like that. It's kind of like the old saying about don't try to teach a pig to sing....it just wastes your time and annoys the pig! :D
