My x-DW's aunt used to raise rabbits for food (she lived in Louisiana). I loved the way she made fried rabbit with brown milk gravy with mashed potatoes or rice ... she also made a rabbit "coq a vin" ... and a rabbit gumbo.

I think Aunt Margaret's biggest problem was segregating the rabbits that laid eggs near Easter time ... the ones that laid chocolate eggs were the real money makers!

Oh, man! That looks to die for! I like the wild better than the tame, but I'd settle for either one.

Hey Michael, were those solid chocolate eggss or the darn hallow ones? Did it require a special buck or rooster to "fill-em up"? hahaha

We have a store here that sells all kinds of "weird" meat... Kangaroo, buffalo, venison, alligator, frog legs... I'm going soon to see if they have rabbit. I've only had it once but, really liked it.

I used to hunt them at night..."headlighting" it was called...Make a large loop behind the house and come home with just about as many as you wanted to dress....Today they are few a far between...Fire Ants, Coyotes, pesticides?? I dunno.
Then I got into raising them...9 does...3 bucks...More fryers than I could keep up with...
I'm not a big fan of liver...However domestic rabbit liver is fantastic!! Dusted with flour and fried...very tender and mild flavor...Excellent meat!

Actually, those meats just sound weird. They don't taste weird at all. OTOH, you can keep your opossum.....
