Default shot a rabbit what is this?

and this was in its skin. It skinned clean. When I was looking at the skin I saw a lump. When I cut the lump open, these were inside. Any ideas? Is the meat still ok?

We shot some rabbits last year when spotlighting and when we took them to the dump the next morning these things had come out and were in the back of the truck. Nasty looking little suckers

Wolves. After a few good cold spells they will be free of them. Sometimes it doesn't get cold enough in Texas and they'll have them all year. Oldtimers would say only shoot rabbits in months with a "R" in them to insure they won't have wolves, but that doesn't work always.

Don't know about wolves but up north we were told to always check for spots on a rabbits liver in months with an r. Spots were supposed to be a sign of tulermenia(sp) a disease. Wouldn't eat a rabbit with a spotted liver.

Grandma would slowly fry the rabbit in Bacon grease or lard. She made a gravy and served it all with homemade biscuits. Made a good breakfast. Essential cast iron skillet.
Squirrels got the same treatment.

Thats what is called a worbel in rabbits also known ad Bot Fly larvae. They are in more than rabbits my friend but the meat is edible. They do not affect it in any way.

Chew, what the heck was going on with that deer? Did you save that juice for further studies? LoL

Like others have said, the rabbit is fine to eat. But as far as the rabbits losing the worms when it gets cold...doesn't happen. The worms live under the skin of the rabbit where the temperature stays a balmy 102° year round. The cold has zero effect on the worms.

Wow. Rudey doesn't post for 5 years but comes out of the closet to spread knowledge of rabbit parasites.

How long will it take to see him again?

What obscure topic will unleash his posting prowess?

I'll eat any rabbit that doesn't have spots on the liver, no matter what the month. Easy meal to get when you're at deer camp and not seeing the deer ya want.
