HAHA well said, though I believe in that unfortunate case, my Father and Grandfather would allow an exception to the rule, I know I sure would.

Other then that though...

Yeah some people where telling me to make a pillow out of the hide? I'm not so sure about that. I asked the taxidermist to have the extra hide tanned for me, dunno what i'll do with it just yet but i assure you nothing will go to waste. I was raised with the notion that anything I killed I would have to eat. So when I fished I ate fish, when i duck hunted I ate duck gumbo, and when i killed a black bird I ate roast black bird.


Thanks for the comments!

My hunter's ed instructor told me there are folks that eat blackbird. What's it like?

I'm guessing it tastes a lot like Crow...or chicken
