Tried the squeeze out method a few times and never succeeded once.Ive done rabbits chickens fish squirrels etc. Ive seen a method done by some lurcher men of paunching a rabbit without a knife where they basically squeeze the rabbit like a stubborn tube of toothpaste until the guts eventually explode out of it backside in a one-er. Effective and not requiring of a knife. Never done it though so I dont k ow how much of a knack it is.
All I got for my efforts were broken splintered ribs come through the skin and stick in my fingers...... Very sore.
If there is a knack...... I don't have it
