IN THE FIELD

IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN (CHECK OUT WABBIT SEASON LAST FEB POST) AND THIS WET, ICEY SATURDAY WAS SPENT IN THE BRAMBLE, HUNTING RABBITS WITH TOM BONAMICI OF ARCHIVAL CLOTHING, .410 SXS IN HAND.

(FILSON TIN CLOTH WAS A MUST FOR THE UNFORGIVING THORNY TERRAIN.)

Beagles? Recipes? I got rabbits this past Saturday in NC and must know what to do with them. Love that 410!

NO DOGS JUST US BEATING THE BRAMBLE.
I LOVE A SLOW BRAISE THAT CAN BECOME A RISOTTO RAGU OR JUST OVER POLENTA. YOUR IN NC TRY FRYING THEM.

No dogs is a good way to hunt rabbits!
I never use dogs, just plenty of walking and stalking. Although I tend to avoid using the .12g and go for the .22mag. Scope and a mono pod.....cleans shots mean clean meat!

Lovely to see someone else getting bunnies!

.410 IS IDEAL FOR THE THICK TERRAIN AND LONG SHOTS WE NEED TO MAKE

Confit is another great way to prepare the wee beasties, takes a bit longer but gosh it's tasty. Check out: http://www.theatlantic.com/food/archive/2009/10/recipe-grilled-rabbit-confit/29136/

I AGREE. RILLETTE MADE FROM A MARINADE OF JUNIPER, GARLIC AND GIN IS GREAT AS WELL.

PS I HAVE MADE A TYPE OF "TUNA" PRESERVED IN HERBS AND OLIVE OIL TOO.

"I've got you this time, Brer Rabbit," said Brer Fox, jumping up and shaking off the dust. "You've sassed me for the very last time. Now I wonder what I should do with you?"

"Roast me! Hang me! Do whatever you please," said Brer Rabbit, "Only please, Brer Fox, whatever you do, please don't throw me into that briar patch."
