I have eaten more Fl rabbits than I could count. As for spotty livers, never even checked em. 20 years ago who knew? As for where are the rabbits, I have hunted them all over the state. One of the best places, when I was younger and you could get away with this sort of thing, was Downtown Orlando. My Dad and Uncle would ride around in a truck with a flashlight. The passenger would hit em with a Benjamin .22 air rifle. My job was to jump out of the back and get em. I was a good rabbit dog.
We also hunted them in old orange groves. That was one of the best places for them. Of course we hunted at night with lights, but hey this wasnt sport hunting. It was get a rabbit or three or it was just pinto beans and corn bread for dinner.
Late evening is the best time, right up to and just after dark are the best times.
