When you say prepare do you mean skin a rabbit? if so here's how hope you understand Hold rabbit by ears make an incision across the back or front of neck put fingers in Grabbing hold of skin and pull round neck and then down it should come away quite easily except for the feet you will need to chop these off with a knife the skin then should come away completely some take the feet off first. Lay rabbit on back and slit with a knife from just above the bottom of the rib cage right down the front when you get to the pelvic bone at the bottom you need to cut through this and prize open then hold rabbit by ears again put hand in and pull out all the guts should come out cleanly if you don't cut the P/bone the guts ca get caught and can be messy finally remove head. Do hope I have not gone through all this gorry stuff and its not what you meant if so I apologise.
Thanks, that's exactly what I mean. Trouble is by the time I need to do this I'll have forgotten how Hence the need for an explanatory pdf file that I can refer to. Something that also explains which parts to eat and the best way of cooking. I've got the trapping/shooting sorted, and the inserting into mouth by use of a fork. It's just everything in between that I've not done before.
I tell a fib. I skinned and cooked snake on adventure camp about 45 years ago.
i've skinned deer and rabbit,and prepped birds and fish. they all have a removable skin which may or may not need to come off,and you need to take out the innards from throat to anus,preferably without damaging the gall bladder or the intestines. you can then decide if you want to eat any of the innards,and the rest of the animal that isn't bone or gristle is pretty much all edible. i like liver ,kidney and i like my sausages to be in intestines rather than plastic pipes,some people like stomach lining and hearts and lungs. all a matter of preference we're obviously spoilt here in the west,you rarely see anyone cracking open bones to get at the marrow,or collecting snails on a wet morning,but all these sources of protein will make a return if we get skint enough !
kernowjon: Hi we nearly always freecamp - old age pension gives loads of leisure time but too little money to pay camp site fees. The van has solar panel, large water tank So we are pretty self sufficient. Jon
