Fascinating. Out here in the desert, we have hares, not rabbits. Last time I shot anything live was a hare, and I decided I had to eat it. It was pretty awful, strong, gamey taste. We raised rabbits to eat when I was a kid, and fed them with the grass clippings my gardener dad brought home. That meat was tender and pleasant. Thanks for posting the link Dan.

We have snowshoe hares in the northern US. Also called the varying hare since it has a white coat for winter and a brown coat the rest of the year.

and the best part is that they're all edible...
harvest them in the mid to late spring and earliest summer..
take the younger ones.. (medium sized) as hares live longer than rabbits and so tend to be tougher...
many like to take them during the winter but I think that the weeds and scrub they eat during winter taints the meat..
Spring time gives the rabbits and hares a more succulent diet and the meat simply tastes better...

There are so many ways to serve them up...

but here lies the rub..
Rabbit/hare meat is so lean that if a person ate it exclusively they could develop something called “fat-hunger” also known as “rabbit starvation.”
Rabbit eaters, if they have no fat from another source- beaver, moose, fish (or chicken, pork, or beef)- will develop diarrhea in about a week, with headache, lassitude, a vague discomfort. If there are enough rabbits, the people eat till their stomachs are distended; but no matter how much they eat they feel unsatisfied....
so supplement the meat for a rounded out diet...
and everything in moderation...

NOTE:
a vast majority of wild rabbits carry a disease called Tularemia which can be passed onto humans...

Tularemia
Francisella tularensis (Tularemia or Rabbit Fever) is a naturally occurring disease carried by wild rabbits and the insects which feed on them such as deerflies and ticks. People are at risk of catching this illness by way of skinning and/or eating contaminated rabbits or by being bitten by infected insects. Symptoms of infection such as aches, fever and chills typically will present themselves two to ten days after exposure. Those most at risk for contracting this disease are those who handle wild rabbits, but the illness is easily treated with antibiotics.

Precautions
Care should be taken when venturing into a habitat of infected rabbits as well as handling and/or eating wild rabbits. If visiting a wild rabbit habitat make sure to wear clothes and insect repellent that will protect your skin from possible bites from infected deerflies and ticks. When hunting remember to wear protective gloves, goggles and make sure any laceration on the skin are covered to minimize contamination through contact with blood. If eating wild rabbit take care to wear protective gloves when preparing the meat for cooking and cook the meat thoroughly to kill any harmful bacteria.
