Not a wimp by far but haven't got the heart to do this either. If I would have to survive out in the elements I'd be in deep trouble. I'd have to plan like a squirrel I guess. Gather and store nuts and stuff for the long winter. :lol: :lol: :lol:

we had fish frys all the time. gigged frogs, noodled turtles, set jugs for catfish n turtles, set trotlines n limb lines. would go panfishing and just slay the bluegill n crappie and clean stuff all day. I never did eat much bass, never could bring myself to do anything but throw them back I always catch n release bass. I absolutely love walleye, but have never caught one. I love turtle soup n fried turtle neck. frog legs are the bomb if done right. and you can't beat eatin a fresh caught channel cat with some frishe's tartar sauce, and some fries n hushpuppies n cole slaw. I love perch too, but haven't caught many.

I've ate groundhog stew before, but kinda stringy for me. I ain't much on venison, and other beeves like that. I love hog meat and pork. but mostly what I eat is fish. I don't hunt. squirrel and rabbit hunted a few times but too much of an animal lover. I'd say 95% of everything I catch I release. so I can catch it again. I ran with buddies in high school that would eat anything and hunted everything that flew, crawled, ran or swam and several of them have passed on. I rarely do it anymore. I praise god when I fish kiss em, n throw em back, except for that occasional chubby channel cat.

Eating all that wild stuff might have been what got them. I have heard you don't want to eat too much fish out of these city rivers and streams because of high PCB and mercury levels. My brother eat a lot of fish he caught and a lot of wild game he hunted when he was younger and he died when he was 46.

I liked ole Bill. Miss him when I come up there. Always had long conversations with him about many things. The classic tea making saying he had that I will always remember. "Quickest way I know to cool it off" :D Loved that. 8-)
