Amazing what you can stumble upon on the internet


I was just kidding, really!

I was just kidding, really!

From a  Body Builders forum

i’m short on cash and need protein.

so here’s an idea i had. i want to lure a deer into my backyard, trap it somehow and then slaughter it.

lots of deer in my neighborhood. so far my plan is to go get a salt lick (these are available at pet stores or an outdoors store i assume, if not, pls advice) and place it in my backyard.

i guess here’s where it gets tricky. i have to trap the deer somehow. not sure how to do this. i have a sweet big ass knife/machete that should do the trick once i’m able to actually grab the deer. swing the blade as hard as possible on the neck should do the trick right? it’s a sharp blade, for sure. any spot on the neck preferable, like closer to the head or lower?

so i know this sounds a little odd. but help a poor brotha out.

what would you do- no gun/bow, but need that deer for protein?

is this too much of a half baked idea? i really think i can make it happen. point me in the right direction please.

No word whether the poster is still alive, but my faith in Darwin is strong.

Sometimes you eat the turkey, sometimes ….

Can’t shoot what’s not there and the birds of Litchfield were not where we were this morning. No big deal; watching dawn break over a meadow glistening with dew, hills in the distance, blue sky above, all much better than a day in front of a computer screen.

But I know some of you will be disappointed to miss out on the culinary tips I’d been planning for cooking turkeys and to make up for that, I offer these recipes for 17 – year cicadas, which are either already here or coming soon. Get out those paper sacks and get collecting!

(here’s just one – plenty more ideas at the link)

Stir-fry fun!

1 cup Worcestershire sauce
60 freshly emerged 17 year cicadas
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups flour
Salt and pepper to season flour
1 cup corn oil or slightly salted butter

Marinate cicadas, alive in a sealed container, in Worcestershire sauce for several hours.

Dip them, in beaten egg, roll them in the seasoned flour and then gently saute them until they are golden brown.

4 main dish servings
