    That's what it's all about Jake, and there is the next generation of hunter. Looked like a nice blue-sky day too to be outside.

    So how'd you cook them?

    Did you let him use the .416 ?

    I'm taking the kids out on Sunday for a ride. I think I'll take the .22 along also

    naa we use the deadtuff solids on those babies..only way to anchor them in heavy brush!

    we try to sell the hares we get, not big on eating them. so we have a little limit that we set so we don't just bang a pile of hares then end up tossin' them out. I keep hearing about guys that shot 15 or whatever but thats not for me. So if something does happen that i can't use them, i try not to have very many. And my little hunter learns about bag limits and not just going crazy on the hares cause he can. restraint is tough for a 6 year old with a pocket full of shells!

    was looking for some birds for the table, but can't eat tracks.

    What will the market bear on hare's nowdays? Enough to pay expenses?

    i was getting enough to cover gas money with the hares, but now theres a couple guys from Ak that pretty much flooded the market with a couple big hauls so now its tough to sell them. got more popular and kinda killed it so to speak.

    Interesting. I far prefer hare to ptarmigan for table fare. I think ptarmigan are more fun to hunt, but hare meat is awfully tasty to my palate. To each their own, I suppose.

    Congrats to your boy!

    Good job! I'm thinking of getting myself out tomorrow. I think it may be the same area in your picture. These are the hares I got a few weeks ago.

    its a rossi .22, i took the recoil pad off so it fits him pretty good.
    i'm gonna put his .243 barrell on soon so he can start practicing with his deer gun, get some hunting experience with it before he heads out for deer.

    Default Rabbit

    Great job Jake. That looks like it was alot of fun. Crock pot for the rabbit? Might be worth a try if you haven't tried it. Onions and cream of mushroom soup makes them pretty good. Enjoyed the picture of your son, thanks.

    De-bone, soak in salt water for a couple hours, marinate in Dales for 5 minutes, make some kabobs. Personally, I don't like cooking them in the crock pot. It might be my imagination but I think they smell like a dead animal in the crock pot.

    Default Hare Recipe

    Great Job BRWNBR! My favorite: de-bone the meat, cut into chunks. Saute onions, garlic and some seasoning ( your choice, but I like seasoning salt with a little chili powder and some Mrs. Dash ) in butter on medium heat. When the onions and garlic turn clear, throw in the chunks of hare and stir fry, turning up the heat to medium high, about 6 - 8 minutes ( Don't over cook it, it'll get tough! ) When it's done, pour the whole mess over a bed of wild rice ( or whatever is your favorite; pasta, taters, etc. ) and serve with some fresh veggies and dinner rolls.
