My dad & brothers hunter & we ate what they killed. My brothers were in a hurry to eat one night and kept bugging me so I hurriedly cooked a rabbit. A rabbit should always be cooked very slowly and for quite a while in order to be tender. This rabbit could have been a basketball as it was like rubber. My brothers never hurried me again when cooking!

I live close to Austin & we went to West Texas to visit. I was young and they had 11 kids. All of the "men folk" (2 dads and the rest boys, jumped in the back of the pick up and went out hunting jack rabbits to shoot. They came back with several and the girls skinned them and cooked them up. We sat down and there was a platter heaped high with rabbit. I couldn't eat it cause I saw the rabbits and my throat just closed up. They tried to tell me it was chicken, but I didn't buy that.

I won't eat "bunnies" either.  It is NOT the same as having chicken for dinner!

My Dad loved rabbit, but even to this day, thinking of eating the cute little things is not for me!

your story was very funny, it takes talent to cook game so it's not "gamie" tasting.

Cute story Virginia.  I used to cook rabbit for my husband and son years ago.  Could never bring myself to eat it though lol.

When I was about 2, my dad went hunting and brought home a rabbit.  When I saw the rabbit, I thought he had brought me home a bunny as a pet!  I got so upset, and started crying, "Daddy, you killed a bunny!"  He hasn't been hunting since.  As an adult, I enjoy venison, but I can't say I've had rabbit since I was 2. ;)
