Alaska Hare

Snowshoe and tundra hare are delicious if properly and promptly prepared -- a process that begins in the field. Always wear gloves to gut and skin hares. If you plan to freeze the meat, dry the pieces before wrapping. Use a double layer of wrapping or two heavy-duty freezer bags to prevent punctures from bone ends, which can lead to freezer-burned meat.
