So the SO in this equasion gets together with his pal Rex and they say, let's have Pussqette (my nickname) shoot a couple of rounds from the .50 caliber. The ammo was as big as me! To which I inquired, "is this gonna hurt"? HECK NO says the SO and Rex. Ok, it looks kind of lethal but maybe it's not. Right. I fire off one shot, am blind,deaf and dumb (well, the SO says I was always dumb for doin this stuff) and the two of them are laughin their arses off and I'm staggering to get up. So much for the .50 caliber!

The rule of thumb is France always was: when a feather pulls out easily, the bird is properly aged. This usually took about a week. I know, I know, everybody always gets squeemish about the aging thing. But in Europe, we hung all the game for at least one week.......venison got a good two weeks. We hang moose for two weeks......takes a loooooong rope.

Safety is another big reason to use a shotgun rather than a rifle for any sort of bird hunting. The power behind those shotgun pellets dies down quickly and they fall reasonably softly in a short distance, but even a .22 fired into the air can do damage for a long distance. Hunting birds and firing higher caliber ammo into the air to travel a long distance adds greatly to the dangers (to others) of hunting.

One hangs a grizz until that 2000 lb. 12-foot full of hate animal calms down! This could take a long time as they don't take lightly to being caught, or hung for that matter. I would think initially that chains and shackles might do the trick but who's gonna volunteer to make the bear stand still while we put the 'cuffs on his paws?? Anyhow, bear meat is terrible unless you're starving to death and NO, I'm not shooting the .50 caliber ever again! (Just in case there are any PETA sympathizers out there, we do not shoot what we will not put in the freezer and eat. So the bears are out of the question!)

Excuse me for being an ignorant city girl who only hunts golf balls and beer cans, but is it really legal to hunt with handguns? And how exactly does one prepare pheasant under glass?

Elise, who's gonna stop me from firing whatever I want to in the middle of a 400 acre Iowa cornfield? Well, for the pheasant under glass question I was gonna give you a smart a** answer like.......well you get a pheasant and a big hunk of glass.....but changed my mind. To the best of my knowledge there is no mention of pheasant under glass in Escoffier, Brillat-Savarin, Larousse, LaVarenne or any other of the authorities on this matter. I think it came from some hotel that cooked the pheasant with wild rice and mushrooms and certainly flambeed it with Cognac and promptly placed a glass dome over it to keep the essence of Cognac from escaping. Me personally, I would like to see that bird positively swimming in a pool of Cognac, pheasant juice, cream and morels! Forget the glass!

Don't fall for it, Tiki! There are modern inventions called a fishing poles. You put a sharp bent metal thing on the end of it and attach some stinky bait. The catfish come to you. No need to wade around and stick your hand down their throat.

Yeah !!!! I ain't sticking my hand down the throat of no steenkin catfish !!!! They'll eat anything, daggum bottom feeders, and I've seen some Santee South Carolina catfish come out of the lake weighing 60lbs (or more) !!! " />

I'll take a pole and some worms and stick with crappie or bream !!!

Just saw part of an interesting "every Saturday" hunting & fishing feature on Memphis tv. Thought of lleechef and her upcoming pheasant hunt, for this show covered subject of pheasant hunting in the midsouth (which I missed & will try to catch when it's repeated this evening). When I tuned in, a couple of chefs from LB's Steakhouse (one of two upscale restaurants in Tunica's Grand Casino) were preparing on outdoor grill a marinated pheasant, recipe for which announcer said was available on tv station's website. When I went there I couldn't find it (apparently not yet posted ) but did find a number of appealing wild game & fish recipes. Web address is http://www.wreg.com/Global/category.asp?C=7338&nav=9E5G in event anyone is interested. From everything involved in preparation and presentation of this pheasant dish, think I'll stick with frying quail on the few occasions those are available. This area used to be full of quail, but now they are so scarce I don't know of anyone who any longer owns a good bird dog. Would like to find out more about the wild game meals which chef stated would be special features of LB's Steakhouse this month.
