Remember these 2 lil ladies? They are all growed up now and we introduced them to their first rabbit warren today. They had SO much fun!
Hunting with ferrets involves netting off the warren entrances along a hedge, popping the ferrets down the hole and waiting for them to flush the bunnies out into the waiting net where we can then dispose of them.
We were out for an hour or so this moring and they pushed out 4 good sized bunnies in all. We only caught one due to not having enough nets for the crazy amount of rabbit holes we have in our hedges, but the girls did their job perfectly.
Rabbit meat is very lean, very local & completely free and now the girls are ready for work we hope to add it to our winter menu more and more this year.
If you have any recipes that we need to know please let me know!
