I saw a video of butching rabbits and at one point the person removes the skin that is around the stomach and notes you can make jerky out of it or bacon. Has anyone done this? im interested in trying it.

I did this but found the taste lacking and it was tough. Dogs loved it though!

No experience, but this must be on farm-raised rabbits - the wild rabbits in our area  have nowhere near enough fat to get "bacon" out of any cut.

The little abdominal side walls is probably what he was talking about.   I very lightly boil mine and then use them cold with mayo, etc., to make a yummy "rabbit salad"   Those cuts are small but soft and tasty if not overcooked!
