That is where my nephews are at. If they see deer in the field, the comments start at Yum and go on to rhapsodize about good venison meals.

Chopping off those furry little bunny feet was not the easiest thing. But I managed to tough it out because the rabbit was already dead and I didn't want to waste good meat, and I actually did a bit of what you suggest. I just kept repeating "rabbit stew... rabbit stew" and sometimes it was more of a yell...

Sounds like the blanket description of every farm animal ever kept - when taken care of improperly.

You could say the same for a pen full of dogs that you don't interact with. You'll have a pen full of biting ferals.
That being said, I have never hunted, but I've killed chickens and gutted many rabbits. I don't have a problem with killing my own meat. I do respect the animals and thank them - though I do find it hard to call it "sacrificing themselves." They aren't giving their life, I am taking it. There is a difference.
I can't wait to get my rabbit house up and running. I'll know that my food is well taken care of and properly dispatched.
