    Default A stupid question regarding rabbit snaring perhaps...

    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.

    i always wait until freezing.. that way you know wherew to snare and it'll be safe till your return...last year i would get a few 'bits while checking the snares... they would litterally run away right into my snare.. so be prepared to off some live ones.

    If you cant stand behind the troops in Iraq.. Feel free to stand in front of them.
