Just wondering if anyone knows where to get fresh,dressed Rabbits that don’t cost 50 dollars each. I’d even go for frozen at a pinch. Other meats I am trying to source are kangaroo legs with bone still in and tails. These are not for dog food. I don’t understand why in this time of ridiculous beef and lamb prices that our ‘National’ meats are not making a resurgence. I’m based in Brisbane.
Thanks.

Mal, if you do a Google search for “Game Meat Brisbane”.  It brings up a few butchers who specialise in game meats.  You may have to order it in.

Last time I recall seeing a rabbit, I think it was on the Riverina somewhere and farmed not wild, it was $65 and weighed 1.5 kilos.

Hey Derek
You better start feeding and fatten them up.
No use trying to sell Mal any if they are not at least with a bit of fat of them. Cheesy Grin Grin Grin

Nah.  I grew up in the 60’s remember and wabbit was one of the main meats we ate.  All us kids had rabbit traps and I can tell you they don’t have any fat on them.   Cheesy Cheesy Grin Grin Grin

Suppose it comes to oiling up the single shot and going to get dinner. Reminds me of growing up in Longreach in the 70’s. Life was simpler then -sigh-.

Talk about life being easier back then.

I remember as I got older progressing to Dad’s .22 Lithgow repeater and then his old single barrel 12 gauge.

When I was 16 I went into Waltons Department Store in Newcastle and walked out with a Winchester Model 96 lever action 30/30 rifle and 4 boxes of ammo.

I thought I was the Rifle Man off TV but it was the best pig gun I ever used.
