After shooting doves in the IV on opening day, my buddies slept in at the motel on Friday morning and didn't want to go out again early, so I decided to mix it up a little. Headed out alone, found a good brush line next to an alphalpha field and it was fur ball city. Pretty fun and my crock pot will be put to good use.

In California rabbit season opens in the heat of summer on July 1. Not sure but I think the disease issue is more of a problem in other areas and most states open later in the fall in cooler temps for the reason you noted. I always wear latex gloves when butchering them and watch for botfly larvae. I've personally never encountered anything suspicious in the hot weather rabbits I've shot here and never gotten sick
