Wintering Raspberry Bushes - Knowledgebase Question

We have raspberry bushes that have grown quite tall this year and are wondering what, if anything we should do to preserve them over the winter. We do have rabbits (no deer however) all year round.

You can prune down to ground level any of the canes that fruited this year. You can then gather the remaining canes and loosely tie them together so they don't whip around in the wind. Not much else needs to be done. They will winter over without problem.
