That's unfortunate but funny Wayne. I'll bet the bears had a great time.

Warren,
You see,bears and moose tend to be,well, bears and moose. They just do what they do.

I am just so glad that life can be .....interesting. Otherwise it would tend to be just a bore.

Pappy--

Regarding bear, I was told of a group of hunters who cooked meat from a bear they had killed, and afterward came down with trichinosis. The information online says that cooking meat might not kill all of that parasite.

Along that line, my vet in Florida stopped hunting wild pigs after four of his friends contracted brucellosis, apparently through small cuts or scratches on their hands as they processed pigs they had killed.

Stuff is lurking out there, just waiting....

Exactly. Same with cougars and reptiles, they are very prone to salmonella. Just like don't eat wild rabbits until after a killing frost. Unless you are in a survival mode and lost your belly fat, wait until you catch a few catfish before you oink out.

Pappy,
If I am not mistaken,I think rabbits,during warm weather,develope "warbles" which is a worm like creature that forms under their skin. First frost usually kills off that parasite.

I guess that the best method of protection is to cook all game thoroughly before consuming.

Always wear gloves when dressing and prepping game.

Yes, I believe you are right, and also toularemia (sp?), supposedly goes away after a killing frost.

I am getting ready right now for a trip to southern GA next month for a quail hunt at the plantation.

I will be using my Darne side by side 12 ga (weights 6 lbs loaded) using very light field loads.

I will also have my Bond Derringer in 410 for any snakes that I hope I DO NOT encounter.

Any quail that I do harvest,I donate to the local soup kitchen so the homeless VETS can have a quail dinner that night.

Thomasville area? You're a good man to donate quail. Fried quail, mashed, saw mill gravy and skillet biscuits, would be tough to pass up.

Pappy19,
No,Moultry,GA, Morrison Pines Plantation. Might I see you when I am down there???

I have been going there for a number of years. Really great folks and being that it is early season,I am usually the only hunter there.

Pretty much have 5,000 acres to myself.

Just wondered. My mother lives in Tallahassee and when we visit her, we always go to Thomasville. Two great sportsman stores there, Kevin's and Stafford's. Lots,of great quail plantations there. With my wife bedridden, don't know if I will get back there anytime soon. Send us some pictures.
