When I was a young man, we didn't have many coons in this area and we did not mind our dogs treeing possums. In fact we encouraged them to tree possums, they sound just as good treed on a possum as they do on a coon. Now we have a fair amount of coons in my area and no one wants their dog to tree possums. The competition hunts caused possums to be a no no, even though the dogs sound just as good treeing both coons and possums. We demoted the poor old possum to trash status. Lol. Dave

All I know is there are some dogs that absolutely can not tell the difference.

Don't skunks have scent glands on their hind legs that spray that awful smell? I would think that once you skinned one and cut those scent glands off, the smell would be gone. Their actual meat/muscle should not smell. It would have to taste better than a veggie burger.

Mr. Lambert

Regarding skunks , I knew a family that was raised very poor back in the mountains. They told me a story about another family that was even poorer than they were. That family actually lived under an overhanging Rock that they enclosed to make a shelter. Friend said that when they caught a skunk this family would skin the skunks for them , eat the meat and return the hides to my friend. While I don't know if this story is actually true, my friend was a honest person and I believe the story was true. We really don't know what we would eat if we truly was hungry enough. My friend said they trapped snowbirds to have some meat in the WINTERTIME. All of this was back in the day of no food stamps or welfare, wonder what would happen if the free food programs were cut out these days? Dave

Dave they would learn to grow a garden like we did and I still do my mind still thinks I have to. All our fruit for jellyís and canned fruit is picked off this government land. The fish the other night and pears for the pear pies did also. Do I financially need to no ! But it was taught to me when I was younger and a lot poorer by my elders and it makes me happy.


Never was so poor we ate a skunk but ate a lot of red beans and rice and corn meal mush lol.

Tar, I think folks in Brooklyn, Detroit and Chicago would have a hard time making a garden. I never tried it, but I don't think concrete plows very well.

You remind me of Hank Williams Jr. Song a country boy can survive! I am not so sure that all those 3 and 4 generations of welfare folks would be so lucky. Most of them think they are entitled to be supported by others, they would not have a clue how to live off the land. Giving others a helping hand is one thing, but to fully support 3 and 4 generations of the same family is absolutely insane. Skunk would be better than starving, possum would be gourmet food. Lol.

Do possums ?

Here is a odd little fact about possums is that they love to eat ticks.The ticks do not seem to bother the Possum.And here I thought they were just a nuisance.( At least up here in the North.)

Friend of mine runs a wholesale fish business. Down here we have lots of carp/buffalo. They are bottom feeders and considered "trash". No one would ever even think about eating one. But he has commercial fishermen that catch them by the boat load in gill nets every night. He sends a tractor trailer load of them up to Chicago every Sunday. They sell them in the projects. I guess that they don't have creeks, rivers or ponds to fish in themselves and don't know the difference between a catfish and a buffalo.

That's not limited to up north. I saw a commercial fisherman pull up to a store and folks would buy those buffalo and throw them right in the trunk to carry home. No idea how they got the smell out of the car.
