    Don't know to many people who eat jacks, but I bagged some today. Any recipes would help, I do cottontails, but never jack . Are they worth eating, they're big n have plenty meat, are tick free, n have no tumors .Hard to tell  the clarity of the eyes, they we're hit in the head n bleed lots. Let me know if I shld go through n dress, or leave em for the coyotes. I have them in ice chest full of ice.  I did see one coyote  crossing the vineyard this am . Thanks guys, appreciate it .

    Jacks are fun to hunt/shoot and yes, some of them can get pretty big. I've been shooting them for a long time and have never tried to cook one. The very first time I hunted them, my buddies told me to never eat them. We don't even touch them unless wearing disposable gloves. This is the reason

    Same here been hunting em for decades .Dad always said leave em for the yotes, but keep the bunnies .I put em  back in the field, badger or yotes will get em. They look healthy , no ticks or tumors, but they do carry disease .Wish the bunnies we're this big .

    They are becoming my favorite game dish. Any beef recipe will do but so far ive been cooking them alot like filet tips. Cube the backstraps, dust in flour, braise in oil and sugar, then deglaze with red wine and water and let it reduce. Slap on top of pasta/veggies and tear it up! Always make sure they cook all the way through. Id compare the meat to like a stew beef.
