    I caught a rabbit in a trap that destroyed my veggie garden that I worked on, what should I do with it. I would love to kill it since it destroyed all my hard work, but maybe something else would work? What do you guys think

    I think you should grill some rabbit and chicken. Tastes really good.

    Rabbit is really yummy, but I have heard that they have "wools" in the summer....kind of like worms I think...

    They sure can reek havoc on a garden! Since you know it is well fed, it should be pretty tasty.

    Some wild rabbits are pretty tough and stringy when grilled. I suppose if you marinate it first it might be ok. I think rabbit stew, along with any vegetables that survived, would be a fitting end..[​IMG]

    I was always taught that you can only eat rabbit if it was killed in a month with an "R" in it. Therefore May thru August NO. They get parasites. Cold weather evidently kills the parasites.

    I dispatched it with my powerful pellet rifle it was a quick painless death, then I gave it to one of my friends who hunts a lot since I didnt know how to skin it or anything! [​IMG]
