  • I have a confession to make.

    So, here is the story. Saturday night I was out on my back porch drinking about my 7th beer. Out by my garden I see a rabbit munching on tomatoes.

    I go to the garage and get my son-in-laws pump up bb gun. 10 pumps, pull the trigger and the damn rabbit jumps up in the air and crash lands. The next thing I know, it is dragging itself by the front paws towards the neighbors yard.

    First of all, I had no idea that it would do that much damage (he was about 35 to 40 yards away when I shot him. And second of all I really didn't think there was any chance in hell that I would hit him anyway.

    Needless to say I felt like a total ass and I knew that I had to finish the job. Has anyone ever heard a rabbit scream? Not one of my prouder moments.

    Beer + firearms = always a party

    Seriously, though, if this was teh Ape Room, you'd be required to kill and eat it on the spot.

      The worst part of it is that I didn't want to take a chance on missing it with the bb gun, so I went back to the garage and got out a maul to finish him off. Talk about a damn heathen.

        So how did you season him?

          I actually had rabbit in Greece and it was delicious.

            Plastic grocery bag into the trash can. Wrong time of year to think about eating him (per my German neighbor).

              I did this on accident once as well...well, it wasn't really an accident, we used to hunt small game in our back yard...I drilled one right in the neck and it started seizing or something jumping all over the place...I felt bad afterward when I had to also finish the job

                  Bunny screams are the worst. I remember when I was a kid, we had a rabbit in the backyard. I pulled out my BB gun, shot and missed, so my dad took a crack. Nailed it. Then he made me hunt it down in the tree row and finish it off. I don't know if that is when I became a man or not.

                  Worst story...When I was in college, my parents had a possum coming into the back yard at like 3 am. The dog would go apeshit on it. My dad dealt with it for like three days. Eventually he got tired of the incident and broke out a wooden baseball bat, mauled the hell out of it. The bat is still in the garage with blood stains. I came home the next day. My dad told me to throw the carcass in the back of my truck and take it to the a field to dispose of because the trash didn't get picked up for 4 more days and he didn't want it to stink. when I picked the bag up with the body I had a nightmare that the possum was playing possum and was gonna wake up and attack.

                  If only I knew thedeerehunter then, he usually eats those things anyway.

                      Perhaps a bit of both. He really felt bad about the rabbit (I think that is why he had me go finish it off). The possum not so much, he wanted that thing dead.

                        But a bunny is more harmful to property, especially a garden, than an opossum. So you're saying your dad based his affinity and animosity based on the relative cuteness of the critter in question?

                        Bunny = lives
                        Possum = death sentence

                          So, uh yeah. But on top of their ugliness, Opossums get into garbage cans, garages, and are generally pests with little fear of human interaction.

                          But this confirms it, he's crazy.
