Things are running a little HOT

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Freakin Ground hog. 6 more weeks of Winter my a$$. We haven't even had 6 weeks of Winter how could we have 6 more?

Flaming is abundant in almost every post in this forum.

People are freakin bored.

My Son just called and needed money. He has to drive down to Summit County to ski cause the Boat hasn't had any snow for the last two weeks.

I can't ride my snowmobile around cause we haven't had any fresh snow since I got back from Colorado.

I can't take my skis to Seattle cause there's no freakin snow there either.

The ten day forecast has no chance of snow, no lie.

I see a freakin groundhog around here and i'm gonna shoot the little Ba$#@rd.

Flame wars are prevalent.

That damn groundhog in PA is drugged and dragged out of a hole in the ground every year. So, your son said the Boat is not so good? Crap, cuz I'm going there in three weeks. Yeah, forget your skis in Seattle, although wake boarding would be a good option -- although tomorrow we're supposed to get a foot up at Baker, but aint holding my breath on that either.....

The Boat will get some snow between now and then. I wouldn't worry about it. If I were going there next week, then i'd be worried.

Just give a little whistle...and he's yours.

It ain't the flames, it's that damn global warming.

Try this to work out the frustration:

Alternatively, ski Tahoe or Utah

Sent many ground hogs to whistle pig heaven when I lived in NJ. Even dispatched some of them with a bow.

Heard that some ate them, but my ex-wife never would let me bring one into the house to cook.

Hey Bong,
Down here its a real treat for our wives to clean and cook up our fresh kill!


Na, on second thought, it was the other generation that the wives like to clean and cook the kill. Once dat womens lib thing came around to cajun land the women made da men clean and cook da game! : Can you believe that???

Squirrel makes the best gravy, period. Ground hog and possum... well, they're an acquired taste imho. And, yes, if you find yourself a little lady who can clean'em and cook'em up tasty like, then you're a lucky man (or woman).

ragin cajun,
Yep, I can believe that. Maybe that's part of why she's an ex-wife. : She wasn't keen on deer hanging in the garage to age even though she liked venison when I cooked it.

Womens lib ruined a lot of good things. But burning bra's did improve the view in many cases. : Boy am I going to get flac from the femme's on these comments.

tetsuma,
I've heard that cooking ground hog is very 'odiferous'.

Tetsuma, sounds as if you have kin folks from here! Ah! a good squirrel sauce-picante over rice. Do you leave the heads on when you cookem?

Man! I hope you're real tight with female regulars here. : Maybe if we add a bunch of posts they won't find yours!

Down in cajun land the wives make us put our dressed deer and game in large 200qt. igloo ice chests...sort of out of sight, out of mind. Guess they don't want blood splattered all over their Land Rovers.

How right you are!!! You cook the nutria for 5 hours in a thick brown gravy then throw out the nutria (can never get use to the idea of eating a marsh rat!) and just eat the gravy! Oh, and the prefered wine would be Mad Dog 20/20!

"BONG" : Sound made when cast iron skillet hits my head.

Still going through rehab from my rotator cuff surgery, I can probably tolerate a little more pain. Besides, I still have some leftover pain meds.

The last time I drank MD 20/20 I woke up face down in a dried patch of it, glueing my face to the bed sheet. I was damed lucky to have passed out face down.

The heads -- I much prefer them deep fried on the side. Best way to enjoy squirrel brains! If you leave em on they get too mushy in the gravy.

In college we had MD20/20 parties...I vaguely remember where you're coming from

Bong, sorry to hear about that shoulder....hope you have a speedy recovery.

Bong, I've had both shoulders done in the past five years. I know the pain. Now my Wife knows the pain. Worst part about it was being uncomfortable and there was no way to get comfortable.

Getting back to woodchucks, I don't have to shoot them here, my dog brings one home every now and then. Plays with it until it dies, then buries it until it gets good and ripe, rolls in it, then eats as much as she can until i have to drag it away and bury it again.

Folks,
Thanks for the sympathy. This is my second rotator cuff surgery in the last 4 years also. Recovery is going well and I have matching scars on the right and left shoulders. I'm almost 3 months post surgery and only have 2 more pt sessions. Range of motion is over 95% and am working on strengthening. Still aches a bit though.

Actually skied twice this week against medical advice, but am careful about choosing my days and terrain. I"m avoiding crowds and just working on basics to get back in the groove after almost a year off of ski's since my ACL reconstruction last Feb. 18. 2004 wasn't a good year for me injury wise.

Lars, good luck to your wife with her recovery, hope it doesn't dampen her enthusiasm for sliding.

Back to woodchucks, the rocky mountain equivalent is rockchucks, a cousin to the woodchuck. I've seen a few while riding over Vail pass on the bike trail. We don't check for their shadows in the spring out here though.

Sad thing is squirrel is the one thing folks have definitely been getting CJD -- mostly old timer folks in Kentucky. I've never had nutria, but I've had the venezuelan version (can't remember the name...) grilled. (The Venezuelan's grill everything.)

Good food is hard to find.

When I hit them woodchucks, there's barely enough left for the hawks and coyotes.

I prefer my meat shrink wrapped with a price sticker, thank you very much.
