yeah it's like beef... we've talked about it in a few other threads...

I usually just keep the backstraps and cook them like steak... dogs love the quarters. Right now though they are full of ticks and larvae so I just leave them for the scavengers...

Here's what the backstraps look like...

Looks like a job to clean it.Next time bring the 45.70. hit i t below the belly and you got the back straps
haha right... it's not actually bad... normally I use a .22, but even as it was I could take the backstraps without problem and without them being too messed up. He was standing broadside and the bullet went through organs, didn't touch the backs. As far as cleaning I use a gutless method. If I'm just taking the backs I lay the rabbit on it's belly and make a cut down the spine, skin pulls away and you can cut the backstrap right off...

This method below is if I'm going to take the quarters too, this also works for cottontail and deer...
