I am no southern boy (originally mid-west), but here is a list of some good eats if you can find the ingredients. These were taken from one of my favorite bands.....Southern Culture On The Skids!! ok leslie and you others don't take offense to the implied sterotyping!!
1 lb. ground beef
1 Tablespoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
2 Tablespoons steak sauce (or the closest thing you can find)
5 Slices of bacon
Toss everything except the bacon into a bowl. Mix it up real good. Shape this mixture into small balls (1" or so wide). Wrap that there bacon around the balls and fasten with a toothpick or twig. Slow cook 'em in a skillet until good n' done. Serve with crackers or white bread soaked in ball juice from skillet.
POSSUM AND CHESTNUTS
1 Pot boiling water
1 Handful chestnuts
1 Handful apple sauce
1 Handful breadcrumbs
1 sweet potato
1/2 Cup lemon juice
1/4 Cup butter
Skin Possum, remove glands and entrails. Scrape clean and scald in boiling water. Rub inside and out with salt and pepper and set in a cool place. Stuff with chestnuts, applesauce, and bread crumbs in equal proportions. Cover with slices of sweet potato, 1 C. Boiling water, 1/2 C. Lemon Juice. Bake in butter and baste often until tender.
DEEP FRIED BALONEY SANDWICHES
2 thick slabs of baloney
2 pieces of Wonder Bread
2 Tbsp. (just a suggestion, use as much as you want)mayonnaise/peanut butter
1 can mandarin oranges
Beat all ingredients together. Throw yer baloney into the deep fryer. Cook until crispy, but not too crispy. Coat your bread with mayonnaise or peanut butter (if you use peanut butter, make sure you got a big 'ol glass of milk. She can get purty dry). Slap the baloney down on the bread and yer in for some good eatin'!

2 HARD-BOILED EGGS
1 TEASPOON CHOPPED DRY ONION

WRAP 'EM UP IN ALUMINUM FOIL AND PUT 'EM ON A BAKING SHEET. BAKE AT 350 DEGREES FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES - 'TIL THE CHEESE IS MELTED. MAKES 4 SERVINGS - UNLESS ONE FELLAR IS A PIG AND EATS 'EM ALL.

Do you think that possum thing might work with say..a rabbit or maybe a nice pork chop?
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 02:31 pm: Edit|
Never had a possum before.. What does that taste like? I think it would taste pretty good with a rabbit.. Sounds like it would anyway.. Hey, anybody ever eat a Canadian Goose? There are so many around here right now that I'm thinking no one would miss one..
|By Daniel on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 02:46 pm: Edit|
I've never had a Canadian goose, but I could go for a Goose Island....long day...
Oh, what were we talking about??? Oh yea, geese. If I knew they tasted anything like duck, I'd probably grab one myself.
It's funny, you see these things all the time in the parks, and you just know there's some guy sittin on a bench three feet away who froze his ass off last winter trying to get one to fly close enough to shoot.
|By gp (Garrett) on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 02:47 pm: Edit|
it all tastes like chicken. even little kittens do. if you have had duck, goose is really no different. up in vermont they have snow geese.......look like fields of snow at times. go figure.
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 02:59 pm: Edit|
Don't need to shoot them around here. You can just run up and grab one and break it's little neck.. Why waste a bullit and risk the cops showing up due to some one hearing gun fire.. Ah, hell with it. Think I'll just go to the supermarket and pick a free range goose up for Sunday dinner..
Damn GP.. You ate a kitten? Must not been much of a meal
|By SOLO on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 03:16 pm: Edit|
He said "ball juice" heheheh
sorry thinking like a kid again.
|By Daniel on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 03:34 pm: Edit|
You'll have to let us know how that goose catchin' goes. Oh, and have someone make a video and send it to Ho. I'd like to see that. ;-)
Somehow, I don't think it will be as easy as it seems.
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 03:46 pm: Edit|
Around here people feed them bread. So now they will come up to you for bread.. They come up to you, you grab it, and with both hands snap it's neck.. You get a little scratched but, you get dinner Ummm, not that I have ever done that before as that would be mean.. Would never tape it as I think you can get arrested around here for doing that.
|By Dean Brown (Deanbrown3d) on Thursday, November 15, 2001 - 05:28 pm: Edit|
You can make a goose-catcher pole: Just a wooden handle with an aly bar bent into a U on the end, wide enough to go round a goose's ankle, but not big enough to get its foot through (they have big feet). Then you can feed them, and when they get close hook one and pull it forward. Throw a blanket over it so it doesn't hurt.
(I don't endorse this method, btw)

times must have been tough as a young boy. or was this in your more 'adult' years.

Ya know, I would probably take offense to the recipies but hell, I'm from Tennessee, in the mountains even, and I cook this crap all the time. We can now even collect our road kill instead of leaving it on the side of the road. The animal control guy that runs through town picking up the pavement pizza is pissed cus his job security has been threatened. Gotta go, the oven timer just dinged...Lunch is ready,

"Eat more Possum" isn't referring to the critter that hangs from branches by it's tail....
O'possum is greasy, you don't 'really' want to eat it, but hey, if you're hungry enough....
Ya know, it's been ages since I've had a kill'd salad. Make a salad, but use poke and turnip greens (or collards instead) instead of lettuce, and ramps instead of onions. Then, fry up a good batch of bacon, crispy-like, and crumble the bacon into the salad. Then, pour the hot bacon grease over the greens.
Hmmmmm...... I just got back in from lunch, but thinking about it I'm already hungry again!
Listen to WMMT on the internet, especially Lil' Debbie's Hillbilly Throwdown show... SCOTS is played on there A LOT! I like the morning shows, and a few of the midday/afternoon ones (Double Double, Grass Less Travelled, Biscuits and Ham), but when it gets to the Silver Fox it's gettin' TOO deep...
|By gp (Garrett) on Friday, November 16, 2001 - 01:12 pm: Edit|
leslie~ actually i just got SCOTS new CD yesterday.......Liquored up and Lacquered down. Have seen them several times and just saw them this summer at the Johnstown Folk Fest here in PA. Always amazing and funny as hell to see. Especially when they sing Fried Chicken and Gasoline!!! Have to check out that site.

Possum the other white meat.

Eric , you go ahead and grab one of those Geese and let me know how it turns out. THey will beat the living shit out of you in less then a second.
If you do manage to wring the bastards neck. You have to cook them in stages to get rid of the grease. THey are strong as shit if you dont...
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Sunday, November 18, 2001 - 09:00 pm: Edit|
Really, how much different is a Canadian goose then one you would get from the store? You eaten one before? I've done it before to a few normal geese (friend used to raise them). Nice pair of gloves and a jean jacket and you are good to go.. Just a little mean that's all.. You really have to be in the wrong frame of mind to do it.. Normal geese are greasy as well but, if you cook them on a roasting rack it isn't too bad and gets most of the grease out of the bird.. Goose, duck, and wild turkey are good eating.. Well, except for when you find some of the field shot the hard way... Crunch, Ouch!!!!!!
|By Kyle on Monday, November 19, 2001 - 02:50 pm: Edit|
Growing up Canadian goose= a turkey in our house. A duck was our chicken. Deer was a cow,,,etc etc,,, Go ahead and grab him , let me know how it turns out...
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Monday, November 19, 2001 - 02:58 pm: Edit|
Already bought one, well a normal goose not a Canadian one.. Eating it on Friday after I put in my new rear drive shaft.. I hope.. Wanted a Pheasant but, they were out of um.. Damn, yuppies.. Think Saturday or Sunday I'm going to have to go some where and get the truck dirty..
|By Chris Merritt (Smokinbro) on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 10:18 am: Edit|
I second Kyle's motion. Go for the goose. Just please....please....please....have someone take a video.......
|By gp (Garrett) on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 11:01 am: Edit|
why don't you just go for a nice great blue heron while your at it. now that's a big bird. easy pickins' from a tree. too rare to kill in some areas though. but the goose would make a good match. we'll be seeing you on 'When Animals Attack' pretty soon.
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 03:57 pm: Edit|
GP, I would never do that to a Heron. I like those birds.. See them all over the place in Canada when I go fishing every year.
Chris, I'm not going to do it or tape it.. Would hate to go to court casue I killed a goose on public property.. Taping it would just get me into more trouble.. Wouldn't want the evidence lying around you know? Now, if the geese were in my back yard or on my property then you would have your vid and I would have my dinner.. Might even have some clips of my dog getting one too. Hmmmm, maybe I will need to put in that small pond this coming summer.
|By gp (Garrett) on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 05:42 pm: Edit|
yeah. wouldn't think you would, but cha never know. they are a pretty sweet bird. my parents have a set that nest in front of their house on a small trout stream. they actually mate for life. we also have lots of turkey vultures too. now that is a nasty bird. they are really huge and would not be suprised to see one of those things swoop down and take off with a cat some day. actually i am pretty sure they only eat leftovers. but seeing them take a cat would be pretty cool.
|By Ron on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 - 05:48 pm: Edit|
I had a turkey vulture stalk the scout.
No kidding. It would circle it. I never figured out why (I am guessing because the scout smelled like rotton garbage), but after about two weeks the front wheel fell off the scout when the hub broke.
More stupid stories for non-tech

I had a hawk take a baseball cap off my head before at my uncles in Whitehaven, PA.. Talk about a surprise when you look up and see talons and wings in your face and then your favorite hat gets a 100 yard ride.. That's what I get for feeding the chipmunks and squirrels.. The coolest thing about my uncles was the flying tree squirrels and the glow in the dark tree stumps.. Those little squirrels were cool as hell though.. I really miss my uncle and that place he had.
|By Kyle on Friday, November 23, 2001 - 12:29 pm: Edit|
Eric , a decent sized canadian gander will give you , the dog and who ever bails to help a real serious ass whippin. You get into this situation where you cant let go and risk more damage , but you aint feelin real good about hanging on either... The best shot is to throw something over the feathery bastard to get those wings tied up..As far as getting in trouble , I think if you went right up to a DNR guy and told him that you wanted to go hand to hand with the Canadian , he would probably offer to hold the camera for you..
Blue Heron ? I cant stand that god damned bird... And the large mouth population where I live dont like em much either...
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Friday, November 23, 2001 - 02:37 pm: Edit|
Na, if it got to be that big of a pain in the ass I'd just shoot the damn thing and call it a day..
|By Andrew Vick (Afv) on Thursday, November 29, 2001 - 05:40 am: Edit|
Sorry I got in on this late, but as a reformed Canadian Goose hunter, the only way to prepare that shit ended up being in the dumpster. They are the nastiest, smelliest birds around, and I won't shoot 'em anymore. I'll vouch for Kyle's comments, however. I've seen slightly wounded geese absolutely kick a 100lb. lab's ass. Dog wasn't good for shit until the following year.
P.S. I don't rant very often, but Geese are just wrong.
|By Eric N (Grnrvr) on Thursday, November 29, 2001 - 05:45 am: Edit|
Thanks, now I know not to eat one.. I have never had a wild Canadian goose. I had thought that they would taste the same as a normal "get at the store" type goose..
|By Kyle on Thursday, November 29, 2001 - 02:10 pm: Edit|
They are much stronger and an excelent meal if ya cook em right. You have to get all that oil off of them though ....
|By Andrew Vick (Afv) on Thursday, November 29, 2001 - 07:36 pm: Edit|
Hmmmmmm....Getting the oil off. Would brake cleaner or engine degreaser work better?
