Wisconsin Wild Life

I had hoped to get some animal pictures while back home, but things didn't work out too well on that count. I did see some wild turkeys, but by the time I would have gotten out of the car, they'd've been long gone. I had read that John James Audubon killed many of the birds he painted to get the plumage right, so I decided to take a page out of his book, though I didn't actually kill the creature - kind of found it that way...

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH.

Don't worry, he's just "sleeping".

He looks a little scrawny and stringy. You'd have to be really hungry to eat him.

Those little rascals still haven't figured out how to outrun a motor car.

Too bad.

..............: Got to soak them in whole milk over night to get rid of the gamy taste once you skin 'em and clean em. Brown 'em in bacon fat and some apple slices and finish in the oven. You can use the pelt to make a hat none of the squirrel was wasted!

sj: More worried about the fleas crawling around on him. Besides, he was to stupid to ask the chicken how to cross the road.

ll: It certainly wasn't his time to cross the street!

dianne: I thought it was kind of funny - Natural selection is still in operation after all.

/t.: We we're actually near a sheep ranch in our travels, but the farmer keeps 'em fenced in so no bumper hunting, darn it.

Big Shamu: Most are pretty good sized, but you are right, even the crows weren't bothering with this one.

JK: One rule of nature - no forehead, no brain... There are so many tree rats in my brother's neighborhood you could hit a hundred of them and not even scratch the surface.

Indigo Incarnates

Sorry about the dissociative breakdown last week. The long and short of it is that last week really sucked and I felt a lot more disconnected from humanity than I usually do.

But, like a bad penny, I'm back!

So... I remember thi really twisted dude I knew in High School. He had a pickup truck with stencils of little animals on the side. He was NOT a good driver, so every time he ran over squirrel, snake, or whatever, he'd add another stencil to the side of his truck. Aaaaiieee!!!!

a deer with
a chevy pickup
@ 50mph on a back road
south of calgary one evening

made a hell of a mess on the front of the truck -- we had "The Deer Hunter" painted onto the side
