What's with you and photos today?  Doesn't the written word spark your imagination? You need to read less internet posts and maybe read a book (without pictures) :rolleyes:!?!

            Oh I read and read important things. I am a visual kind of guy. If you only knew there are many things read that is not true. Of all folks here Mr. Scientist you should know this. So I can read the water, the air, the soil and ground around me. Signs all over. I know many armchair sportsmen. Books and as Griz says boobtube, farcebook so on and so forth. The best sportsmen I know learn from the school of hard knocks. They learn by being out there day after day in the element they find irresistible.  You can read about climbing a tree, a flight of stairs or a mountain but until you do it you don't know jack :).

Though I agree with what you are saying, still not sure what all this means in terms of having pictures with your posts:P.

So back to the topic of this thread, my Betterhalf had the same thoughts that RPS did about staying out of the cold wet weather today. She made a potato soup in her crock pot. Cooked onions with thyme and minced garlic then added two tablespoons of flour and a cup of chicken stock cooked on the stove top then added all of this to the crock pot. Added diced white potatoes and another three cups of chicken stock. Cooked on the high setting for three hours. Once the potatoes were tender, she smashed them but not blended smooth. She wanted some potato bits in the soup. Then added about 6 to 8 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled, and added about 1/2 cup of sour cream, and two cups mild cheddar cheese. Cooked for a few minutes to let everything come together.  I topped mine with another dollop of sour cream, a bit more crumbled bacon, and some shredded smoked cheddar (from
WoundedOne). Would have been a bit better if we had some chives or green onions. Still very good as you can see from the photo :)!

My beautiful wife decided this weather called for bread and made a lovely rustic loaf! When faced with that consequence, I will respond with a mixed sea food chowder, low country style. You know the kind, the kind that starts with bacon and a roue? Onion, celery, leeks, carrot, chopped baby waxy potatoes, white wine, clam juice, milk, Old Bay, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, sriracha, and, of course, the sea food - one of those blends they sell now that includes mussels, octopus, clam pieces, and shrimp - all will hang out together for a while.
Is you mouth watering yet?

Now you're talking RPS.

so do you eat beaver?

           Yes as a matter of a fact I have. That and coon, and my favorite of all muskrat.  What are you doing over here? This is not what you were talking about in the ugly fish thread. You should be digging yourself out of that hole first or is this what you are trying to do? This and the other two posts about eating beaver and stabbing beaver. Good luck man,

         Thanks for the pictures John! Helps a lot. You should know reading is not all the answer. You had a puzzled look for what I posted. I know you actually realize what I mean. You did field work did you not? Hey I liked those retro Folly pictures you posted. I never wrote any papers. I am mostly a field work kind of guy :) . I read and read about spinning up a coal and start fire but until I watched my friend do it and making my own kit and doing it did I realize what it was all about,

I have never eaten any rodent larger than a big fox squirrel. I have had BBQ raccoon. It was a bourbon BBQ sauce with a bit too much bourbon. It was fine. I would try coon again with a different preparation. Would be real interested in trying mountain lion. Supposed to be quite good.

Marty - as I mentioned earlier, I do understand. Just giving you a hard time requiring a photo essay to make hash :).
