Did he eat them? No offense but don't like people who kill for fun; not food
"Power, especially overgrown power, whets the ambition and sets all the wits to work to enlarge it. Therefore, encroachments on peoples liberties are not generally made all at once, but so gradually as hardly to be perceived by the less watchful; and all plastered over, it may be, with such plausible pretenses, that before they are aware of the snare, they are taken and can not disentangle themselves."

I agree, if you ain't going to eat it, don't bag it.

Bobb, Howard Hill was not the type of man to let anything he shot go to waste.

I was wondering about the 12 wild jackass..., probably took a while to eat 129 goats too.

I can't believe this thread.  And to think that it was a discussion about rather eating beaver than opossum that led me to the door at that (other) board. I like it here!

You are talking about the one in my freezer right?     

Oh, and I'll pass on the possum eatin'.  Maybe gator tail......

Brian,
I've seen that and wondered; if he's so alone who is taking video and doing sound??


There was one of those shows.... Survivor man I think. He would climb down a really rugged cliff, set the camera up, climb back up the cliff so he could film himself climbing down. Sound isn't so hard. Remote mics, then voice overs or sound affects added back at the studio during editing. 
:rainbowflower:  Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.   :rainbowflower:
