The Midlife Nomad - Grouse

Hi all,

Today's after work activities consisted of taking out the rifles and hitting the land to see what could be for dinner.

A very controversial subject "hunting", especially if you live near a convenience store in a large city. Have you ever considered the process from animal to table? Would you eat meat if every day you had to find it, kill it, gut it and cook it? I personally resisted in the shooting aspect, but I thought to myself, I do eat meat, why couldn't I learn & over-come my high level views

Lexy ensuring nothing untoward happens to this afternoon catch

The hunt itself seemed to go to plan with the experienced hunters, we shot several grouse and returned to the house to strip the animal of their flesh. I wont go through the graphic details, but I was a little squirmy at first and an experienced hunter has quick ways to trip the animal back to the flesh. I will not post the graphic details, research it for yourself if you desire.

The breast of the grouse is best to keep and we wash and store the grouse in freezer bags until they were ready to eat.

Canada Trivia - The 1964 animated TV movie “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was filmed in Japan, but the entire soundtrack was recorded in a studio in Toronto, Ontario

Happy travels, living life and new experiences
