This is a Rolls Royce snow plow. Talking about Class or Money! WOW
Today: A common question in my past life was: When are you going hunting? Where will it be this year?
Growing up, many of our meals came out of the woods, off the land, the chicken lot and hog pen. I am amazed at the people that cannot stomach the thought of someone harvesting a squirrel, rabbit, turkey or deer for food.
My mama could make some of the best squirrel gravy. She made some big biscuits to sop the gravy, because if you had only two squirrels the meat did not go far.
(Mama's hen house and chicken house)
I was trapping rabbits at 5 years old. I let daddy get them out of the 'rabbit box.' We moved from the country to the city and mama could not have a chicken lot and hen house. She missed the fresh eggs from her own chickens. She could wring a chicken's neck in one turn. At that time they still sold live chickens at the grocery store.
I am amazed at people (not Vegans) who put someone down for hunting or trapping. I have heard, "How can someone shoot Bambi?" They never consider that the person hunting will eat that meat same as they do the meat they buy at the store. MOST people are not hunting for sport to kill and let it rot like road kill, but to bring in meat and enjoy the outdoors at the same time.
Sherry called my attention to one of Dar's entries on FB. I was thrilled that Mama "O", got her deer, a broken 8 pointer rated as 6. Pay attention, Mrs. "O" is 89 years young. We had the privilege of meeting her in Northern Wisconsin. She is quite the beautiful lady. We met her thru her daughters, Mel & Dar, who at the time were bloggers. If hitting a deer at 89 years of age doesn’t mean anything to you, you have never been hunting. And also you have never been old.
Woody, up in the cold of NY, just posted he was headed for the woods to replenish his freezer. Somehow that bothers a person who enjoys a T-bone or NY Strip. They must have no idea how that cow was slaughtered before it could be cleaned, dressed and parted out. OR, they put it out of their mind that the cow was 'harvested.' The deer has a fighting chance but not the standing beef.
