    Hare backsteaks - soak them in salt water overnight and then fry them like chicken pieces, with flour and egg batter.

    You can cook them whole over an open fire on a stick but come out very dry. Rabbit is better.

    Hare is great. Back-steaks are more delicate than venison IMO,(more like Chamois) and if you're worried about them getting dry or want a variation etc. wrap them in streaky bacon (held by toothpicks so they don't unravel) fry them hot until the bacon looks well done then rest a while and slice, great topping for a salad for those who aren't afraid of a healthy meal.
    The rest of the hare I curry, kind of indian style cooked in spices and finished/simmered in coconut cream.There's a lot of meat on them.
    Also hare is by far the most favoured meat for our pet cat and dog so nothing gets wasted if we only feast on the back steaks.

    Vege Alert....Look away now @gonetropo...

    Another hare another pie.....well sort of. Sharon had pastry left over from another pie she was making but under-estimated the amount she needed for the hare.
    She tells me there is enough meat in the fridge to make another 3 pies. That's tomorrows task after she makes more pastry.

    Got this one last night when I was out culling possums. Saw it in the grass at about 140 meters at dusk. Binoculars confirmed that indeed I had spotted a head and eye poking out of the grass. The rest is history.

    Cheers

    have had some nice slow cooked hare,
    This is the last one I shot with a a large caliber. I was not keen, Guess the back legs would have been salvageable.
    357 cal 158gr pistol bullet at 2500 fps. Was very satisfying in a instant kill pest control mindset.
    Still we had 2 deer on the ground to clean and bag as well (1 each).

    that looks like a 22-250 or .223 kill if you wait till they side on you can still salvage best bits by hitting in neck....even a shoulder hit will still allow back wheels and some backsteak to be ok....hit one midships and low....completely gutted it and left all the meat untouched....effective but not recommended. dog thought it was great.
