    Two years ago in Colorado a group of us were on atvs traveling on a mining trail when the lead guy disappeared after we rounded a curve, he hit some loose talus and went off the edge of the world. Fortunately he abandoned ship off the atv and it went straight down into a group of pine trees. If it hadn't hit that tree she would have gone a freaking mile. After almost 3 hours of winching we recovered the bike which started up and limped back the way we came, Polaris atvs are tough.

    I hear ya Rich. After skinning a few racoons, I'd have a hard time eating one of those greasy little buggers either regardless of how good some folks say they are.

    So, I guess I will have to remove the Saber-Tooth Possum hunt from my to do list.

    I've eaten one ****. It WAS greasy. But it was tasty, like a pot roast. I'd probably try it again, but make sure I got every DROP of fat off before cooking. I bit into a bit of fat while eating it, and, yeah. Bleh. Also I would grill it, or make sure to cook it In a manner where the drippings would....drip. Not collect and stew the critter in its own juices.
    But as for possums, NO. Ain't eating one of those. They are gross enough, more so after witnessing them eating the side out of a dead bloated calf.

    Skin a **** cold as possible with out freezing it; then have the carcass real cold to harden the fat, cut all fat off as possible----be sure and get the sent glands
    near the neck fat and under the front legs [pits], then clean out the fat pocket and the same glands in the pocket in the rear legs [thigh].

    Now roast it with carrots, onions, celery and such as you want not potatoes as the vegs are just for flavor and to absorb grease----use a nesco roaster or make a foil pouch in a roasting pan. Cook slow until the meat wants to
    fall off the bones. Maybe add a little water to the bottom of the pan in the roaster.

    I've eaten dozens of them before the rabies issue got so bad.

    We have coons come up on the porch scrounging for food also but they don't get the broom and bucket treatment, the get lead poisoning. A possum is pretty easy to catch (since here we don't have those NZ fast and willy ones) but you try to face off a big buck **** or mama w/ kits and you go a fight with rabies possibly in the mix. The little masked bandits maybe cute but with animals and such they aren't welcome near the house.

    Naw, I'm just makin' noise - although I actually *would* try it. If it was greasy, I probably couldn't eat a lot of it, but I'd give it a shot.

    One of my granddads would put dead possums out on top of the trashcans for the collectors in the 50s and 60s and they sure appreciated it. It was also said he sawed off several of the first parking meters put up in Fort Myers with a hacksaw! Called them all a bunch of Damn Communists :mad::mad::angry::angry: :roll2::roll2: :roll2:
