  2. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    A few questions about rabbits: 1) Has anyone tried free range rabbit ranching with a rabbit hutch and rabbit run but with the rabbits released during the day to forage on grass? 2) Are rabbits at serious risk of predation in a semi-rural area during daylight hours? We do have coyotes as well as...

    Has anyone had any experience with raising rabbits while feeding them only vegetation found around your property? My thought is if it will be difficult to find store bought food for humans, it will most likely also be difficult to find store bought food for my rabbits. If you have any...
  5. DIY - Do It Yourself
    So I've got 8 rabbit furs that I've scraped free of fat and meat and let dry stiff. I'm planning on working them into soft hide material (fur on). I would love some advice on the best way to tan them from this stage. Was thinking of dry scraping them with a dull edge to get down to a base...

  8. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    Trapping is just a survival fallback at the moment, so just want to have some snares in my pack (no firearm for hunting) so can someone explain the difference between these two products in terms of effectiveness, flexibility of trap-laying options etc?

  9. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    I must be in a good mood today or feeling rather lazy. I am out here on my deer lease this weekend. Not archery hunting, but bird hunting and I am after an impala I have seen lately. Anyhow, our property is full of rabbits and I love rabbit meat. The other three guys think I am nuts, but I...
  10. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I asked a few weeks ago about how to make an inexpensive chicken coop, now it's the rabbit's turn! I'm wanting to breed my rabbits but don't have a hutch made for separating the males from females. I thought about buying a metal shed (used) for cheap and then hanging wire cages off the roof. Do...
  11. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Well first I had to deal with protecting my garden from deer so I built a 7+ foot tall fence. Then a couple days ago I got hit by a rabbit. Ate all my broccoli and some of my beans. Today I shot the little devil in the neck with my 22. He lived in a bush about 30 feet away from the garden...
  12. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    Does anybody know where the rabbits are in NJ. It seems as if they all disappeared. I realize I took a break from Hunting from 1994 until 2008 but I seem to remember rabbits being in abundance. So..... Where have all the rabbits gone? Anyone?
