We live in a small development on the edge of town and the same 4 are in our backyard everyday.  Lots of rabbit dump everywhere!

Is that from Northern Minnesota? When I was a kid, I would look out my bedroom window every morning in the winter and see a similar scene

My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.

 

 

That looks like a really good recipe, outside of the raw kidneys.  I don't think I could handle those with my eyes open...:P

Nope, in Mankato.  I guess the neighbors have named them so I might not be too popular if I cooked one up at the neighborhood get-together!

Snowshoe hares in Mankato?  Huh.   I have Cottontails that practically are big enough to ride (I am in Rochester) but I thought snowshoes were an "up north" thang.

Those are jackrabbit's.

 

Last time I have seen jackrabbit's in MN was when I was going to school in Mankato over a quarter century ago.

Those are jackrabbits, In southern Mn. there used to be hundreds of them per square mile in the late 50's and they were hunted and sold for .50 a piece to mink farms. (Just a little history from someone who did it)

Only Snows and Jacks will turn white in winter. Not Cottontails.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
