I am interested in setting some snares for rabbits this winter and can check the sets on a daily basis. But are you guys snaring rabbits for the skins or the meat? I would be more interested in the meat, but is there any issues with the quality of meat that has been potentially dead, and not cleaned for up to a day? I can just imagine an animal getting caught early evening when they start their nighttime activities and me not checking the lines until 5 or 6 pm the next day. During the cold of winter I can see where they would be fine, but what about this time of year? Should I hold off until daytime temps are staying below freezing?
Any comments would be great.
