Marry a southern women & she will show you bent & ripped out pages 📑..they all cook from their mama & grandma recipes index cards. So i decided on a cookbook around our 3rd anniversary. Not only did she look fat in that dress but that cookbook was sold the 1st customer at a yard sale..💰cha-ching!   

Oh yes bubba's cookbooks are gold!

So are the church fundraisers where they publish donated recipes.

no, I'm very specific about what is good, Real American football season food.

it isn't a "make someone sick" thread.

So when's deer season up there Cal? Done right that can be some real good football day food.🦌

Every now and then I see a couple of wild turkeys from my back porch going along in the opening I have in my woods behind the back fence. Since I own part of those woods I'm sure I could get 'em, but not sure the next door neighbors who also own parts of it on either side would be so forgiving.🦃🤩

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Wildlife Council has approved regulations for the state's 2018-19 hunting season. The deer archery season will run from Sept. 29 to Feb. 3. The youth deer gun season will be Nov. 17-18. The deer gun season will run from Nov. 26 to Dec. 2 and Dec. 15-16.May 19, 2018
 
    I spend a lot of time in the woods, we don't allow hunting. I've had a couple of neighbors ask permission during archery season,
to got on our land and get a deer that kept running for another 20 yards or so. I respect them - said "sure".
  They brought a nice tray of venison and venison gravy.
  If one day we need food, that would be great dinners. Squirrel - I grew up hunting squirrel and pheasant. Ah, pheasant is outstanding - but they froze out in the blizzard in...76 and 78?
  I'd love to go wild turkey hunting someday. and wild boar. Always wondered how good the bacon would be.

I have seen turkey here in RMNP on this visit to Colorado. Last year I saw a flock of about 5-6 crossing the road on the way up to Bear Lake. 

When I lived in Kansas (during Dodge City days?LOL) I went pheasant hunting with a friend and then later duck hunting. Those pheasant are so sneaky it's hard to spot them  even between the rows of harvested wheat until they pop up and fly. Great tasting for sure.

Squirrel truthfully I have never hunted or eaten. When I was a kid I found a baby squirrel that had fallen from the nest with a broken leg. I nursed it back to health using milk and an eye dropper until it was fully grown & healed. It would run up and down my arms and back and jump from kid to kid. Then it started staying out in the trees for hours before coming "home" and then overnight, until finally a few days at a time. I think he found a girlfriend and went wild because he disappeared for months. Then one day I spotted one outside, brought some pecans in my hand and sat down calling his name. He slowly and carefully came up and took them one by one until he had his fill and went back up his tree. Never saw him again, but I know that was him. So I just don't hunt 'em or eat 'em. Too many fond memories of my "little fella".

BTW how do you and I wrangle licenses for "youth deer gun season"?

I was coming home from shopping and saw 8 or so wild turkeys crossing snow road right past W.130st.  First time I've seen them here.

Wild turkeys are making a comeback. I've seen them a couple of times on my bike rides south of Dayton. Regarding shooting 'em- a .22 with a scope is a nice quiet solution. (Regarding a .22, I have a story about that one later.)

One thing that we've done too good a job of is restoring the Canadian goose population. Back in the late 50s and early 60s- they were rare. Now, there's bike paths along our Great Miami River I won't use- unless there's been a heavy rain to wash away the unavoidable one per square foot crap the flying poop machines have deposited. They won't even get out of my way 1\2 the time. (I've debated with my wife what would happen if I deliberately hit one with my bike) My brother and I used to have a standing joke about "the quality goose gun", an over\under 10 gauge magnum shotgun. I swear, sometimes they're so thick, I bet I could nail 5-6 of 'em with one pull of the trigger. 

As far as small wild game, I've pretty much tried it all (except goose), and don't much like it. Pheasant is tolerable, but just no to rabbit, squirrel, and duck (yuck). Venison isn't high on my list either. I decided if I'm not going to eat it, I'm not going to kill it. 

Getting back to my story of the last critter I shot. My pal used to have a farm down near the Ohio River in Indiana with no closed season and no daily bag limit. Went down there with Grandpa's .22 Browning semi-auto that I had just put a 9X 'scope on and I was going to sight it in. Went out back, set a bunch of cans on top of a fence, backed off 100 feet, and was going to plink them off. Just getting ready to shoot- I can't freaking believe it. A quail decides to land on the fence. Ready, aim, fire. Guess I'm sighted in OK. Had Quentin the Quail for Thanksgiving dinner.

I would love to try quail. Wildlife - depends on how you process some of this stuff. Everybody has their own tastes.

Froglegs are also really good, like squirrel. I hear Canadian goose is good, but you have to brine it overnight, something like that.

Never tried duck. I really, really want to try rattlesnake. My cousin was in special forces in laos and cambodia. One day, back in the 80's...Dad and I went down to WV to my uncle's funeral. Their homeplace was 250 acres - you can see the skyline drive from their back porch.

  I tried to get my cousin to with me - but he wouldn't go rattlesnake hunting with me at night, up on the mountain. picky, picky, picky.

So I didn't go, either.

What could go wrong there? :lol:

Actually the cottonmouths, copperheads also kind of spook me enough......if around. 

........but I'll always eat venison done right! With gravy and onions and mushrooms and mashed potatoes, ummmmmm.

LOL! When I was 15 I got bit on the toe by a copperhead. I should have thought to have my siblings fry him up for me after they killed him. Well I think it was them. I suppose he could have died from biting such a venomous bastard, even when I was young.😜
