Good Shot & Bad Shot – Cottontail Rabbit Cleaning

In this video, I go through the steps of cleaning two cottontail rabbits after the shot. One of the rabbits was a perfect head shot, making the cleaning a breeze. The other was shot through a small bush, which caused the bullet to do extensive damage to the rabbit. However, I show that even poorly shot rabbits can be salvaged for the table. My methods of cleaning are quick and simple. It typically takes me about 1.5 minutes to clean a rabbit properly and get it on ice.

Both rabbits were taken with the .17 Winchester Super Magnum. For more information on this caliber, please visit the following links:
