So tomorrow I am doing my first set of butchering. Most are at 5 lbs, some a little more. My plan is to hit the rabbit across the eye/in front of the ears with the back of a hatchet. I will then hang the rabbit upside down with hooks through the achilles tendon. At that point I will slit its throat but not all the way through to cut the head off, just enough for it to bleed out. Is this correct or should I cut the head off immediately after I hang it? I figured if the heart is still pumping it will push as much of the blood out as possible. Am I on the right track? Thanks for the help and constructive criticism!
