Please excuse if this has been covered before. I am, unfortunately, a bit of a city boy. I have spent, however, a good amount of time in the high desert, and will be moving there shortly. While up there, I've done more than my share of rabbit hunting, both the jackrabbits (more common) and cottontails (less visible). I have always been put off of eating what I take (usually, the hunt was to keep the rabbits from eating the trees/crops) because I've been told that the jackrabbits were dirty/diseased, and infested with fleas. But I have a hard time believing that they are all diseased, and all inedible. I would like to eat what I take, if at all possible, but I haven't got much experience with cleaning/cooking. Advice?
