Skip to comments.Am I Turning Liberal, RINO, or what (Vanity)
Posted on 05/28/2013 5:46:53 AM PDT by 2nd Amendment
I need help from the Freeper Community. My entire bean garden was wiped out by a cottontail rabbit this weekend. The rabbit can be seen in my backyard mocking me with her twitching nose. I have been an avid hunter and have killed myriads of game before but I am having difficulty (with my wife's advice) from sending this Obama rabbit to the great carrot garden in the sky. My question is thus: Is my hesitancy in expediting this rabbit a sign of liberal or worse RINO behavior? Am I caving in to the zeitgeist of the times by not putting a .22 into the head of Watership Down resident? My other options are repellant sprays, live trapping, or installing a $100 rabbit fence. If I get any Freeper responses to my dilemna, I will follow their advice (like a true RINO). The fate of Peter Cottontail is now in your hands!
I believe you are becoming a vegetarian. Rabbit is very tasty.
Shoot him and eat him FGS!
>> Is my hesitancy in expediting this rabbit a sign of liberal or worse RINO behavior?
Blame it on the ammunition shortage and you’ll be okay. :-)
Whether you make a meal of him or not, remember the rabbit’s gotta eat too.
How about a couple of male cats ??
It’s a rabbit. Don’t waste a rare .22 LR on it. A bb or pellet will be more than enough.
Man up and go find some 22LR sub sonic ammo (that’s more readily available than normal or high speed) and pop one in the chamber and send that damned bunny to Valhalla!
Now, the sub-sonic might not cycle your semi if that’s what you’re using so it’s like you’re giving the bunny a fighting chance....
It’s either that or just consider yourself as the green grocer for a friggin bunny.
We have tons of the little bastids around. We tried the spray and it has worked. At least for now.
Those wascally wabbits are eatin’ machines.
I don’t kill unless its truly necessary either. I use live traps here for what the dog doesn’t kill.
Don’t be surprised if you get accused of being gay sympathizer infiltrating the Scouts....
An electric fence with the lowest strand 2-3” from the ground. Should cost <<$100. Kept the wabbits out of my corn once I figured out who the culprits were.
I’m a wabbit swayer
A guitar pwayer
Dispatch the critter and sin no more...
What type of spray? The bunnies didn’t pay for the lawn we put in so they shouldn’t benefit from it. Popped a couple with the pellet gun but I have limited angles of fire due to adjacent property. If they get on the hill though it’s a whole other story. Bye bye bunnie.
Kill the bunny (unless his name is Harry).
Keep your powder dry. The rabbit is just an adavance scout for the gophers.
* 1 rabbit, about 3 pounds, cut up
* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 3 tablespoons butter
* 1 cup chopped celery
* 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
* 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
* 1 teaspoon salt
* dash pepper
* 1 bay leaf
* 4 cups water
* 4 cups dry red wine
* 2 cups diced carrots
* 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
* 4 ounces sliced mushrooms, sauteed
* 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/3 cup water
Directions for rabbit stew.
Dredge rabbit pieces with 1/2 cup flour.
Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat;
brown rabbit pieces on all sides.
Add celery, onion, salt, pepper, bay leaf, 4 cups water, and wine;
bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer rabbit stew for 2 hours.
Add carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms;
cook for about 25 to 30 minutes longer, or until vegetables are tender.
Combine 1/4 cup flour and 1/3 cup water;
stir until well blended and smooth.
Stir flour mixture into the broth;
cook and stir until thickened.
Rabbit stew recipe serves 4.
Note: This recipe doubles (or triples) nicely if you encounter Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail at the same time.
It will bring water and entertainment to your garden.
If that fails, you can always practice your survival skills with a pellet gun.
We bought wabbit and deer repellent spray. Just make sure when you spray it that the wind doesn’t blow it back at you. The odor is horrid, but after spraying you don’t smell it, but the wabbits do. Contains fox pee, a wabbits natural enemy.
Yes you are officially a libtard and there is no hope for you. Anyone who thinks others are responsible for their own situation is a libtard. Now get out of here and go register at DU with your ilk.
I shoot ground hogs from an upstairs window to deal with this problem. If that option is available to you it might be give it a shot.
The 3 Ss’. Shoot, sauce and supper.
You obviously need more coffee. /s
then feast on your kill (though I know of people who wont eat rabbits unless it is cold out....something to do with worms...but I do not see how they wont have worms in the cold weather too?)
I understand your dilemma. In my youth, I loved to fish, but as I got older, I started having trouble putting a hook through live bait.
Isn’t there a way you can twap the wabbit humanely without injuring it, and then relocate it?
Thanks. We’ll order some today and crank up the sprayer.
Here’s a spray I’m trying: one clove garlic and one small onion macerated into a juice, add one teaspoon cayenne, then add one quart water, let it sit for an hour, then strain it, then add one tablespoon dishwashing liquid, and you’re ready to go, spray on leaves, smells awful, but I hope it works for me and yours next time...
I’ve popped three raccoons this weekend robbing my trees and stealing my cat’s food. I see similarities here. The bright spot is the buzzards are eating well.
Remington subsonic HPs are the way to go—they work well on body shots for ‘chucks, too.
IF YOU CAN GET THEM, of course.
OK . . . Freepers have spoken. It’s running better than 5:1 for rabbit murder. I’ll be on my roof tomorrow morning with my scoped Savage 17HMR ready to put a piece of lead between Thumper’s eyes. Remember his (or her) blood will be on your hands.
You’re suffering from a feeling of being overwhelmed by the tidal wave of takers like the rest of us producers. You may get rid of this rabbit, but in your heart you know others are in line to take its place.
It’s OK to have a pet bunny, but you do run the risk of supporting a bunny family not far down the road. They reproduce like, well, rabbits.
Perhaps like me you have lost your blood lust. There are a few predators I will shoot but otherwise I enjoy wildlife. And their lives, often tough, are all they have and I would rather watch them, and feed them, then to snuff out what little they have. Name your critters and enjoy them - except the big bad wolf, coyotes and a few winged thingys.
Is it wabbit season or duck season?
Until you got the the soap I couldn't tell if you wanted to repel the rabbit or marinate him.
I suggest that the problem be viewed as a matter of illegal immigration by rabbits onto your land. Your preferred solution — vigorous interior enforcement — works only as long as you are there and on guard. Since you have competing obligations and there is a vast number of rabbits looking to trespass and live off the fruits of your efforts, it seems to me that a fence that is impermeable to rabbits is the preferred solution — backed up, of course, by .22 caliber interior enforcement.
Slingshot. Spear. Atlatl. Wire snare. Arrow.
Expand your horizons.
Kill it and grill it.
Some squirrels shoot back!
Monday humor... enjoy!
Given the scarcity of .22 ammo, the $100 bunny wabit fence might not be a bad idea.
I can relate! We have been relocating a family of 4 of these little rascals. They have been having a wonderful time bounding around our garage at all times of the night, knocking over pots, opening bins, and eating all the cat food. One night they opened every single drawer in the tool cabinets and climbed up them like stairs to get at a couple of onions. The swampy woods are full of crayfish and and other tasty raccoon treats but when I chase them off they come right back. So now we are driving them across the spillway and letting them go on the other side of the lake! These little guys don't even growl when caged. They just act like a pouty pet that just got in trouble. Guess it could be worse. My dad has skunks at the deer camp!
