They have been tearing up the yard and have dug a few burrows out in my hunting patch...
It appears armadillos like raccoons can’t run faster than 3000 fps either.
Better get to skinning ,,,,,,,, the Mrs. needs a new purse.
Why did you bring in onto your carpet? Don’t even touch those things!
Just a CCI mini-mag is all it takes...
That is how it starts. You kill the dominate one and ten of his cousins try to take over for him.
Hope you don't get leprosy!
I got chased by a raccoon, while small game hunting. Those suckers can run fast!!!!!!!!!!!! He was gaining on me, so I stopped and introduced him to my 12 gauge 870 wingmaster. To be honest, I thought he was going to rip me a new one. I never realized how fast they can flat out run.
That's a good Armadillo right there.
We just have the unarmored version AKA opossums
Properly prepared I hear their not bad eating.
I know people who ate possums the dillows noot so much
Cook one up and let us know !!!! 🙃😜 I think I would have to be pretty hungry to try one !!!! I guess they ate them a lot during the Hover years !
I have read they called them hover hogs
During the depression as that was about all they had to eat
we may have to start again with creepy Joe in office
At our possum fall festival there is NO dillos that are eaten. Not allowed when you can have the rare white meat possum with a Miller High Life. Come on up at our 75 th. fesival. Free possum feeds and a possum queen also crowned.
Thanks may have to stop in
I remember a episode of the Beverly hillbillies
Granny was home sick for the possum days back home
She and jed talked about the prade with the possum juggler and bands all the people and new crowing a queen
so to keep them in California Drysdale put on a possum day parade lol
He Had Mrs Hathaway juggling possums ( just stuffed animinal toys on the show )
Check it out i bet its on you tube you get a kick out of it
I was working a job in the old part of the train yard back in the early 80s. A skunk tried to cross the tracks and got cut in half, must have been maybe late November, after a couple days the smell wasn’t that bad as it was cold. That dead skunk laid there until maybe February when we had a thaw and warm up. I remember going down to couple up a track, and there was this possum chewing away on that half frozen dead skunk. Possums will eat anything, even their own dead. If you don’t mind I’ll pass on that delicacy.
Amen brother.. Hard Pass.
Yep there well know to be scavengers and tidy up the environment
A old boss I had southern W.V. Grew up a poor kid said they ate possums then one day they had to a bury a horse that died over the winter they had to get rid of it fast
said the pousoms as in several came out the back end of that bloated horse and he never ate another poussim
We have about 6 to ten skunks that hang around they don't cause any trouble share space with the cats bit their know to eat everything also
I found a old page out of a bo scout
manual from back in the 1950's how to prepare and eat skunks lol
But I am in no hurry to try it
