A coworker raises rabbits for meat. He likes it, but he said when they mixed it with duck meat (all ground together) it was the best. The duck has the fat the rabbit needed to not be dry when used as a ground meat. He has ducks, chickens, and rabbits all together. I suppose farmed rabbit might not be quite as stringy.I've hunted and ate wild rabbit. Stringy meat. Not very gamey, IF you are used to eating game.
It's a light meat, kinda like a very lean, mutton. Less course, but just as stringy.
I make it into a casserole or meat pie to make it more appetizing for gentle folk.
The pelts are awesome and easy to cure at home. The remains all burn easy.
It's a great animal to hunt, except for THE BUGS.
Remember to only hunt/eat rabbit AFTER the first couple of HARD FROSTS.
Those fuckers have more worms/parasites than any other wild meat I have eaten.
