Be careful with the day lilies, a lot of the day lily family is very poisonous. Especially those yummy looking tubers and bulbs.

Nah, nothing to it. I make a killer bunny stew. The caberne and portabellas are really for quail, add some wild rice and you're fat. I've learned to cook prickly pear cactus like eggplant, and blanch jojoba nuts to get the bitter taste out, etc. The last thing I'll do is go hungry.

No, not really. *blush* Other than being extrememly cranky, the Stroud diet would probably be a good thing for me. I could go a month, so long as the weather was warm and there was plenty of water.

If you get me much outside of my stomping ground, I'm in trouble. When I was very little, my grandfather tought me what I could eat in the woods, and how to fix it. Ate some really strange stuff with him. But if I've got the right terrain and the time, I'm a gourmet survivalist. :P

Oh, gods yes!

One of the nastiest smells I've ever come across was a racoon hide that was to be tanned, and the glands had been cut during skinning. Worse than ammonia.

Yep, I've got a pretty good idea of what I can eat out of the yard, the city park down the street (you'd be surprised at the look you get when you ask the parks guy if it's OK to harvest the dandelions <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />), or along the canal path... I just can NOT understand HOW people manage to starve in this country <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />.

I'm catching up on my reading ... Boiling has been mentioned a few times, if it isn't practical, couldn't you skin, gut & toss in the fire or roast? I guess there would be some loss removing the burnt exterior but the remaining meat would be pretty palatable - no ? <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Why waste that much meat... put it on a sharp stick and roast it.
