Roadkill!

ZeeZee Senior MemberPosts: 28,076 Senior Member
So, my boy and I were driving out of our neighborhood when he spotted a brown animal in the grass.
Boy - "Hey, what's that?"
Me - "Somebody hit a deer with their vehicle."
Boy - "Oh! Maybe we can eat it?!?"


I don't know whether I'm more proud he wants to eat deer or the fact that it's roadkill.

    Good stuff.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    What concerns me more is the question, is this one of those "Like Father Like Son" moments?
    .....:yikes:.....:fan:.....:bang:

    Seriously, I think your son is above all a true, died in the wool, conservationist and that ain't bad at all. Now, you can perfect this attribute by coaching him on the affects of time and temperature on meat,

    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    You'ns aint got no coyotes out thar? Down here where I am that animal would have been eaten up totally within 48 hours by all kinds of other animals plus buzzards and even crows.

    It was hit last night at the end of my street. I noticed it this morning when I came in from work. So, no yotes are going to eat it in the daytime at the end of my street by the highway. Buzzards will probably be on it by tomorrow.

    Yes, I explained to him that it was killed last night and that by this afternoon............it was too rotten for eating as it had been baking in the sun all day with hot temps.

    He understood.

    How many rednecks does it take to eat a road-killed possum?

    First rule of roadkill - get there before the buzzards - they get all of the tender cuts.

    That's awesome. Your son gets it! Of course, he has you as a dad and it makes that leap a little easier....:tooth: I ain't above eating a deer shot by a Honda.
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    No post mortem for the lad? I'm somewhat disappointed that you didn't at least open it up for the boy to prove to him that it was beyond being valid table fare.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Exactly what I was thinking.
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.
