Aldyth asked:.
<<< Does anyone have a good source for rabbit for a feast?  I have   
been able to
find it for around $6 a pound before shipping. It seems that the  100  
odd that
live on my back 40 are under 4 feet of snow and prefer to stay that   
way. The
feast we are looking at is not until April and we really would like  
to  do
rabbit.  >>>

My local grocery store has frozen rabbit, already prepped not under 4  
feet of snow, but they usually only have a few at a time. You might  
see if they can order some for you. Or check with any specialty  
butcher shops in your area.  Adamantius wrote a good article on how  
to build up a relationship with and how to work with such shops often  
yielding good benefits for both you and the shop. That is something  
that has to be done over time though and you probably don't have time  
before April. However, I wanted to bring this up again in case it  
might help others.
