When I was young(early 1950's) my dad had a string of homemade wooden box traps on properties just outside the city limits of Milwaukee. He baited with apple and kept us in meat all winter. I still love stewed rabbit with onion gravy, drop dumpling and sweet-sour red cabbage. Mom made the same meal with chicken, pheasant and pork steak. I've made it with muskrat, you can hardly tell it from rabbit.
