Braised Rabbit

With Fresh Sage

No matter how small, the animal hunting is always done with great respect. Rabbits are typically used in stews, roasted on an open fire, boiled or barbecued. Rabbit hides can be used for clothing blankets, socks and hats. Rabbits are snared by creating a small loop at the end of the wire and bending one end of the wire to create a circle. Hang the circle on a stick at rabbit head height and cover with branches to camouflage.
