this is so easy you cant believe
bone out your rabbits, of course all the meat is in the legs and loin. grind it and add your favorite seasoning pack or heres what I use this is for 12 # of meat 4 oz of basic seasoning...from butcher shop 1 tablesthingy sage 1/2 tablesthingy thyme and add 12 oz of a wine let stand in refrigerater 24 hours either case it then or make patties one thing youll find out is that there is no shinkage. wonderful...wheres that rabbit?
With rabbit spread for sandwiches I roast the rabbit first. take meat off bones grind and add my mayo and pickles with what ever else trips your trigger.
here at home I raise rabbits just for these 2 treats

news on prices from a old fur buyer. Seems that china is short on money for steel. They canceled a contract with the usa. What does this mean for fur? well This older buyer told me it is just going to be a bit unstable and that country buyers might have to hold thier fur to get a good price.. That to me would mean that auction houses will see lower prices. How ever he seemed to think that first sales will be ok. plus big stir up with feds and fur buyers a t auction houses. some buyers from over seas may vow to never set foot on american soil again.

A little fact is the otter has been good but southern otter were the highest. I think it all was a inflated market that some like myself got lucky on as we were in the south trapping. but all things come to a end. as they say usa is now using more real fur than ever before so thats a good thing,

yes this is what I have heard also. I dont think mink will go up much and from what I've been told muskrat prices are down due to the amount of rats coming off the line. fox I heard will stay as is but coyote is on the down side. I have heard nothing on beaver. and otter is dropping

A note on fleshing beams We make them all out of maple maple has a grain that is fine and if it is cut or scared with knife can be buffed back out where oak's grain will want to travel. when you look for a beam get rid of the idea that the beam has to be tappered all the way down. you NEVER USE more than the first fooot of the beam. do all your work close to you and you will save your back and will not make cutting mistakes. pull your hide up to you do not push down the beam. by the way we guarantee our beams

A lot of local buyers I found never do use either, and I guess they are just stuck in thier ways. The Necker has been the best fleshing tool on the market for years. It has a sharp side and a flat side. The flat side is for pushing off fat and tissue, the sharp side is for cutting. This knive is high quality and never needs sharpening. I have done over 5000 coon with mine and never sharpened it. The caribou knive has grown in popularity. It has taken the #1 place on the knive market. Made of high grade stainless it too never needs sharpening. It also has the same curve and has a razer sharp cutting side, and a sharp back side. Extremly good knive for beaver and otter. I myself have both and after practice can use the caribou on any hide. but it is very sharp and will cut quickly. The handles on the caribou will allow your hands to rest easier as it has a better hand fit to it. hope this helps

If you use a bean correctly and mount it to fit you you will never have back troubles i do a lot of coon per year and i never have had truoble. now the english system means you are reaching and your arms will get tried fast of being high or close to your hearts level
