    Although I wouldn't eat raccoon or opossum I have had my share of rabbit and squirrel. When I used to hunt with my Dad back in the day we ate what we shot. It wasn't that bad. I still eat rabbit but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat a squirrel anymore.

    This Man is obviously very poor and doing what he needs to get buy. In his culture this is as normal for him as it is for us to enjoy Sushi, etc.

    I don't think he's a WEIRDO though, just some poor guy trying to survive where everything cost an arm and a leg.

    Every person getting by on what they can catch and trap to eat.....It's what we all came from, and what we will all go back to eventually. Nothing wrong with it. Good for him.

    "I knowed some hard times," Beasley says. "But a man's got to know how to get hisself through them hard times. -

    Can't argue with that. The man is fending for himself. Most of today's generation couldn't do without their ipod, let alone catch their own meal.

    Great post!! I've never tried coon before, but wouldn't hesitate if it were on the table. You say he's poor, but he's retired and gets to make money doing what he loves.... hunting, selling and cooking. I say he's a rich man.

    I would love to get out on a coon hunt with someone sometime. My dad used to do it all the time and he has some great stories and memories.

    Squirrel is the best eating wild game in the woods. I'll take squirrel over any other wild game. Past few years I have gotten away from deer hunting and concentrate on squiirels with my flintlock for the reason I just stated, plus they are fun and challenging to hunt and I don't have to drag them out.
