Went hunting for the first time today and got myself a rabbit. Too bat the little guy had to die in vain. When I cut its belly open I found a large tapeworm so he never made it to the dinner table.
Yah, I just left it. I didn't have the gas to burn it anyway.we have tons of those and cottontails around the farm shelter belts. i shoot em' and leave em' all the time. helps keep the fox and coyotes out of teh sheep herd. dont feel bad about leaving it for a predator. thats natures way, you're just helping out a bit *WINK*
