    Now, I have had squirrel and it was quite good. Just had to watch out for the buckshot so I didn't break a tooth. Honestly.

    I've eaten a lot of both and although there is more meat on a rabbit I actually think squirrel tastes better.

    There are some who'll eat a possum but you'd have one hell of a fight on your hands if you tried to force me to eat some.......why ?

    As a kid working on my uncles farm in Kentucky I witnessed a possum 'coming out' of a dead cow that my uncle had drug off to the woods a week or more earlier......sorry but I don't care how you fix it, there ain't nothing that considers the insides of a week old dead cow fine dining that I'd care to eat.

    It was kind of you to relocate the possums. I'm sure they're grateful for it.

    Have eaten a lot of different things, but never possum. Raccoon, beaver, muskrat, rattlesnake, chitlins (deep fat fried hog intestines), rabbit, squirrel, deer (venison), etc., etc. Just could never see where I needed to try possum meat. They always seemed to be simply an overgrown rat.

    [IKE; 11-27-16 QUOTE]I've still been using the trap continuously for the past two weeks and hadn't had any luck, which tells me that I've thinned out the herd considerably, till this morning.......I just turned on the patio light and possum # 5 is in the trap.

    I just got up and haven't finished my first cup of coffee yet so he's just going to have to wait a little bit longer before he takes a pickup ride to his new casa down by the river. [/QUOTE]


    Update; I noticed some new digging around my storage shed about a week ago so I starting setting out the live trap again baited with dry dog food......guess what ?, I just returned from hauling off possum #6.

    Like the other five I hope he enjoyed the pickup ride to his new home in the woods down by the river.

    Just got back from relocating # 8 and cleaning up his mess (poop)......cleaning up possum poop is not really something that I look forward to at 5:00 in the morning.

    I haven't set the trap out for several weeks but yesterday I noticed footprints and scratching in the front flowerbed so I baited the trap with dry cat food and set it out last night.........I just went out to get the paper and guess what's in the trap ?

    Another skunk !.......it looks like I'm going to be tied up for the next hour or so.

    Here in the Campgrounds, it’s catch and release also. Mainly skunks and raccoons. There is a fox that has been seen, but doesn’t stick around long.
    My wife was afraid of the dark until she saw me naked. Now she’s afraid of the light.
