Another fun trip to Montana in the books
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:16:14 PM »
Just got back from Montana and had a good time in the cold, snow, and wind.  My son was pretty happy with his Muley buck and we shot a few Whities and another muley too!  My son liked the other Montana options as you might notice in some of the pictures!  I tried to get them to leave the porcupine alone but when the rancher told them he wanted them gone, My son did the deed!!  Shot 16 sharptails for the crockpot too!  We were planning on taking my sons big white snow jackrabbit and skinning it out, but when we went outside to skin the beast it was gone!!  The feral cats had stole it and drug it under the barn.  We found it the next day with 3 cats feasting away on it!

Nice!
Everyone lives off the land. Some of us simply have more fun at it.

That white-tailed jackrabbit can work in the crockpot too.  Had a friend in Wyoming who's wife made a mean gumbo with them.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Yeah, jacks taste just as good as any other rabbit, and there's a lot more too them than a cottontail.

Looks like a fun hunt.

That sounds like a fun trip! Lots of variety. I heard that porcupine is good eating. Did you try it?

Yeah, I about wrecked this last week as I was headed to chase deer. I was  in a daze when I caught a glimpse of one Standing then darting across the road.  I THOUGHT IT WAS A KID.     I dont normally brake for rabbits.....  Scared me to death.   Saved my life. I was no longer in a daze.



Looks like a great hunt!   I was going to harass you about the porkie (okay maybe not with the new forum rules) until you explained yourself.  LOL    Looks like a great family adventure.  Thanks for sharing!

The State trapper told us last year that 1/3 of the rabbits have triganosis.  He told us if we were going to skin the rabbit to wear good surgeons gloves and to be very careful.  I don't know if that is a problem after they have been cooked or not.  Any information on this???  We could have shot 30 Jackrabbits if we wanted too.  At dusk and first dark they are everywhere.

I donít think itís Trich, I think itís Tuleremia thatís the problem.  A bacteria.   I think if you wear gloves and cook it good you are ok, but please check.
