As Ted Nugent says - KILL IT AND GRILL IT!!
MMMMMMMMMMM - MEAT!!
Just about any critter can be eatten! Heck ... any
rodent too. Aren't kangaroos rodents? Ever have
roo tail? MMMMMMMM!
I had RAW HORSE at a bar in Japan. I was stationed
there for three years. The bar snacks were beans,
dried fish ... and RAW HORSE. That was interesting!
We don't have hunting weapons in our house. If we
lived out in the country we definately would. My husband
wants to bow-hunt. He did it when he was in the Air Force
and stationed in Alaska. I think he said they bow hunted
for wild goats or something.
Our house weapons (because we live in the city) are those
for home protection. GLOCKS. Mine is a 9 mil. Hubsters is
a Glock 45 short. He's an EXCELLENT shot. Which is a good
thing because I'm lousy (which kinda' makes me a more
dangerous shooter ... so don't ever break into our house,
cuz you'll get blasted from all sides and in all directions!
My husband was on the air force shooting team when he was
stationed in Alaska (his job was a specialized MP job of some
sort called Terrorist Control). The shooting team traveled and
put on exhibitions. He's VERY good at shooting. I was a lousy
shooter when I was in the army (still am). I couldn't hit anything
with the M16. I made up for it when I qualified with the M60.
Heck ... just aim in the general direction and pull the trigger.
The bullets fly and you are bound to hit something at least a few
times! EXCELLENT WEAPON! So, if you are having lots of folks
over for dinner, perhaps an M60 would be good (just don't get
caught). You could take out a whole mess of possum and have
plenty to feed the company over the holidays! (and have some
left to make possum soup - mmmmmmm)
I was also rather good with the grenade. But of course you
can't hunt with a grenade. You can FISH with one ... but don't
get caught! Oh ... the grenade launcher was cool. I managed
to blow up the tank at Fort Dix with it. Guess ya' can't hunt
possums with a grenade launcher ... there wouldn't be enough
possum left for a decent stew!
