do you take them somewhere for that, or do it yourself?

you know, I've never heard of so many people raising bunnies for freezer camp until I joined this forum!

Ewwww what exactly is the "broomstick method"? The bunnies are cute. Rabbit meat is one meat I dislike very much. I love squirrel, deer, buffalo, duck, and goat and lamb, but not rabbit. Bleh...

The broomstick method is where you put the rabbit on the ground, put the broomstick over their neck, step on both sides, and pull the rabbit's feet out from under them so it dislocates their neck. Either that or their head comes off.

"Bonking" is either knocking their head super hard with wood, or hitting their foreheads with a hammer. Sometimes the eyes pop out.

A "wringer" (just noticed I had been saying "ringer"... LOL woooowwww Grace.) is a piece of re-bar and hook it in the wall, one side stays in father than the other. You pick up the rabbit, place it's head in the small side, pull the feet and dislocate the neck.

And, of course, a .22 is just for shooting the head, behind the ears, at an angle slightly towards the nose. Kills them instantly if done correctly.

Try some guinea, just killed, butchered, gutted, and plucked seven this morning before 10:00. :D

If any of this was meant to disturb me, you will be disappointed that none of it did. I just was curious what the broomstick method was...
I grew up on a farm. I don't choose to kill and eat my own animals now, but it doesn't bother me. I just don't care for rabbit. The meat tastes yuck to me. I love squirrel on the other hand.
