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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
