And racoons and opossums eat dead animals. It's not their meat that worries me, it's all the bugs and nasty schit in their fur. Also rabies is a thing. On the other hand, rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks almost never get rabies.


The north american hairless beaver is my favorite game though Doesn't even have to be hairless, with my moustache I can't tell.

there are multiple answers to your statement....I guess the bottom line is..how hungry you are....
different times call for different thinking....
if you have an abundance of food in stores then you can cherry pick what wild game you want to consume, when the store shelves are empty, your stomach will dictate what you eat...

It's called dental floss not hair.

Site isn’t letting me upload pictures. Had a good, other than my truck battery dieing! Got the gas line ran. One of the tanks leaked from the rebuilt valve, basically the packing nut when turned on. I’ll have to get with my lp guy to see if there’s a trick.

Haven’t cooked up the porcupine yet. Figured I’d get home to look up a recipe before ruining the meat.

I’ve had cat and dog overseas, raccoon when I was younger, squirrel, rabbit, and all the normal game. Coon was pretty greasy if I remember right. I’ve also heard opossum is really good, but sorry, once you see one crawl out of a dead deer’s azz, it kinda puts an image in your mind. Kinda like when you watch a show about what tilapia eats and is raised.

Lots of time around the bonfire, lots of card games, no cell or internet service, carved 6 cool walking sticks, took the kid to the local crystal clear lake for some swimming.

I have a post to make in the brewing forum too.

It's a regular packing nut on a globe valve right? Just close the valve, take the nut off, maybe handle first, and wrap some teflon tape around the stem and put the nut back on. Doesn't hurt to use some pipe dope too. I usually twist the tape into a strand first. Granted it won't stand up to repeated use like real graphite and asbestos packing but it's fine for that old valve you don't want to change right now and can just leave open or closed most of the time.

I've never done it on propane but it works great on water and higher pressure air(~200psi).

I should’ve taken a picture. I tried tightening it and the leak did slow, but still leaked. I only brought up the tools I needed for the job, an adjustable wrench would’ve been helpful.

I’ll fix it when I go back to winterize and close up the property.
