in search of hare

  • 8

for a special Christmas dish that has been in my family for generations.

I get all my other wild game meats from Harmony Farms.
But they only have rabbit.
I have not been able to find a place that has hare.

Anyone have any leads on where i could find some in the LAish area?
Are they even available down here?
I'm from Montreal so they are pretty prevalent come fall in the woods up north.

Help is greatly appreciated.

  1. I wish You had posted earlier. I passed a lot of jack rabbits (hare) quail hunting on Sunday. I have friends going out again this weekend I can ask them to bag one for you.

      oh wow, fresh.
      i would love that, the logistics of it might be crazy though.
      Do you happen to know what ammo they use? Since i'm butchering it, i want to know what the damage will be!

        It's shotgun. If they bag one I'll clean it for you.

          I'm going out to the desert on Thursday for Quail if I come upon a Hare would it be too late for you?

            that would actually be fine. i am starting the cooking process saturday morning for it to be ready for supper.
            I'm on the west side/brentwood area. if you aren't too far and you catch one, we'll set something up.
            i sure do appreciate this.

              There is a big difference between hare and jackrabbit.
              I've eaten jackrabbit and have had nothing more tough
              to chew save the last chukar I shot. Hare from the north
              are large, meaty, usually are quite good to eat. Eating a
              jackrabbit would be a novelty - stick with cottontails. YMMV
