I have been thinking about trapping wild rabbits at our place to pen them in to have an abundance of healthy meat for the family. Will have to experiment with different processing, like burger, sausage and such. Your website has given me very good ideas especially with the blanket of fur. Keep up the good work!

Before you trap wild  rabbits, you should realize that they carry plague.  You can't really tell unless you check their liver for spots. 

You are better off getting domestic rabbits and using them.  Rabbit is't the best meat, in fact, it was one of the forbidden meats in the OT for the jews to eat.  Fish is by far the best meat to eat with probably venison or goat.

Crap! Thanks for the info Steve, I was thinking about trapping and raising the rabbits, not the trapping that makes them scream like girls. Also have heard to only harvest rabbits in the winter, less parasites and thicker fur. But in my world things wanting to get done are overrun by things that get done so the rabbit thing will have to wait till the chicken coop is done. Right after the garden is done and firewood for the winter is cut and stacked...
