A mammal of the leporidae family, that also includes rabbits. Hares don"t burrow, like rabbits, but live above the ground in a grassy depression called a "form". They are considerably larger than rabbits, having very long hind legs, and darker, gamy-tasting meat. There is no close season for killing hares, but they not be offered for sale between March and July. See 'Hare; to roast a young' - in our recipe section
