Where can I find fresh rabbit in central OC?

Where can I find fresh rabbit in central (Orange, Santa Ana, Tustin) OC? Markets that used to carry it seem to no longer do so.
I'm hungry for Bunny Marengo!

  1. Rabbit season is open now, so if you know anyone who hunts, getting fresh wild rabbit shouldn't be a problem. (If you're willing to make the treck up to LA to pick them up, I could probably take some for you this weekend.)

      Oooohh. Wild rabbits. Pick me! Pick me! I'll swap pie for rabbits. =)

      Bristol Farms carries them and/or will special order them. Some Latino/Asian markets carry them frozen.

        E-mail me off line: (And do you want Jacks, or only cotton tails?)

        Thanks for the kind offer! My husband could hunt them but I actually prefer the flavor of domestic rabbit especially for 'non-gamy' guests!
        I'll continue to check stores in the area and perhaps head down to Bristol Farms.

        1. On the north side of Bolsa, just east of Beach, I've seen bunnies in the window of the poultry store.
          Won't get any fresher!
