I take mine (either bushytails or rabbits, works equally well with both...) and put them in the crock-pot, whole or quartered, overnight with just enough water to cover them. Add salt and pepper to taste, cook on low. In the morning I drain the broth off and set it aside and pick all the meat off the bones, making sure to pick out any lead shot or bone fragments. When I use rabbit I'll often debone them and just use the meat; in fact, I just made one yesterday this way. Then I just follow the Betty Crocker recipe for chicken pot pie, substituting the broth of whatever critter I am cooking for chicken broth and the meat for the chicken. The meat will blend right in to the gravy, but lots of flavor if you do it right. My wife and I like it better than chicken, and that is not an exaggeration! Just search betty crocker pot pie on Google!
A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!
