Eating rabbit this year--it's so warm out

I was wondering if you all think it is safe to eat rabbit this winter in the southeast because it is so warm. I always learned that you only eat them in the winter because the rest of the year they have that parasite called "wolves". I figured the cold weather must have something to do with killing it. But we haven't had but one freeze, and it was just so short, one night. And its pretty warm out this year. Do you think it is safe to eat the wild ones?

Where in Ga. are you? I'm down in Camden Co.. We have had a couple of freezes this winter, but it has been pretty mild. We had a cat bring home a rabbit that had a wolf parasite once-freaked me out seeing that thing. When we ate rabbit, it was always in months with an R in it-like oysters. LOL! Always in the cool months. I would think it would be ok to eat them now.

Hey subeeds, I'm right next door in Brantley just over the border of Camden. Near Atkinson.

i remember my dad with his .22 when i was very young as he picked off the jack rabbits. then using pronged sticks to get them out of their rabbit holes and him breaking their hind legs to make sure they can't run anymore. Finally, gutting them and cooking them in a pot until they were ready to be eaten!!

Well hi, almost neighbor! As for rabbits, if you've got 'em, eat em'. LOL! About 5 years ago, the coyote and fox moved into our area-invaded would be a better word, and wiped out our rabbit population. We haven't seen one in close to 3 years. They pretty much took out everything that lives on the ground from the whip-or-wills and quail to a good portion of the snake population.

Yeah, usually we are overrun. We had one of our domestic rabbits get loose so if you see white, black or polka dotted ones hopping around, you know why.

DNR released fox squirrels in our area, hopefully people won't shoot them. I haven't seen a single squirrel in my area in ten years other than these.

It's probably best to hunt cottontails after a few good frosts. Are ye fond of rabbit because I've got some recipes and grilling tips.


I usually hunt them at dusk.
