We’ve done lots of gathering, now let’s do some hunting.

MCH has spent most of our time focusing on the gathering aspect of survival.  Even the chickens and rabbits are essentially gathered / farmed, instead of hunted.  All that changed this afternoon.  Staying with us this week is an extraordinary young man named Robbie, who has a gift for catching squirrels.  As far as I can tell, it mostly takes the combination of stupid squirrels and lots of patience.  The basic set up requires a cage, a long rope tied to the cage door, and some bait.  Then, the hunter (Gabe and Robbie, in this case) hides behind a tree or garage.  When an unsuspecting squirrel ventures into the cage, the rope is yanked, the door swings shut, and the squirrel is trapped.  Impossible, you say?  Think again.

My favorite part is the obviously panicked squirrel clinging to the side of the cage.  The kids were pretty disappointed when I told them we weren’t going to skin and eat the squirrel.  Maybe next time.

    Haha! I’m sure I could get you a delicious squirrel recipe for next time.

  2. Nate Says:

    I’ve heard they taste like dirt. Can’t wait.

    Nate,

    I currently live at a small place in Macomb and there are two *very tasty* looking rabbits that seem to subsist off the clippings from my dull mulching mower.

    They would have been dinner a long time ago, but (sadly) they have become icons to the family. Their names are Peter and… actually, I think we call them both Peter.

    Anyway, if your hunters go pro, I could use someone to do the dirty work here (like bounty hunters) and take the heat with the family while I roast my former backyard tenants…

    Keep me posted on their career plans.

    Kyle
