The first time I met my grandfather-in-law he invited me and my now husband into his home located on the family dairy farm in northern Pennsylvania for dinner: a creamy warm stew with noticeable chunks of potato…and protein that I would soon learn was rabbit harvested from the surrounding woods. It was my first foray in eating wild game, and I LOVED it. To my own city-dwelling family’s chagrin I proceeded to re-create this meal when I hosted Easter a few years later. Timing has never been my strong suit. Regardless, with fresh rabbit being one of my favorite proteins I’m excited to produce this round-up of iSportsman location with rabbit season already in progress or opening soon.
