My latest Chicken Coop invader. Before I run it down the road to a friend's farm, does anyone want it?

Possum Stew Anyone?

The woods behind us, go on for miles. Looks like I caught the culprit that had been stealing the chicken eggs. :taz: Still trying to get the Grey Fox and Red Fox that are stealing the chickens. :rambo2:

When our dog tried to sniff this one, the possum bared his teeth and opened his mouth W-I-D-E. Our dog got behind me and started barking, but at the same time he was shaking like a leaf in a hurricane :woot: . Wish I had my video camera. Big brave dog. Not!

Good luck - and make sure you take it a million miles away as they tend to have really good homing instincts.

Not sure about the Franklin PD, but here in Flemington they will dispatch an "injured" wild animal. There was one in my garden last year that "accidently" ran into a shovel :mad: .

We had one of those a couple winters ago getting a little too aggressive around the outside cat food pans. I had to beat it into submission with the 35" Tennessee Thumper I had kept from college baseball. It took 3 or 4 whacks with the bat, I guess I only have warning track power left after all these years. :(

Nasty critter! If you relocate live, it takes at least 5 miles. Most people prefer to relocate it 6 feet. ;)

My sister in law puts a brick in with the bait. After she catches a nasty critter she just drops the whole trap in the pond on her way to work and picks it up on the way home. She hasn't had one hold it's breath for the whole day.

Hey here guys,everybody's got to eat now and again.Yah,they are not the best looking animal ever created but since he/she is contained and harmless at this point why not cut him a break? He certainly can't munch you now. You could drop him off far away with a stern warning not to repeat. Just remember if he had only two legs,hair only on the head and eyebrows, and he did "bad" we would not only have to feed him but shelter him too.Oh almost forgot the air conditioning and TV services.

Everything tastes good with a few 'taters. :wacko: :beer:

Such as:


Three Possum Recipes

Possum and Taters

Ingredients:
1 young, fat possum
8 sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon sugar
salt

Directions: First, catch a possum. This in itself is excellent entertainment on a moonlight night. Skin the possum and remove the head and feet. Be sure to wash it thoroughly. Freeze overnight either outside or in a refrigerator. When ready to cook, peel the potatoes and boil them tender in lightly salted water along with the butter and sugar. At the same time, stew the possum tender in a tightly covered pan with a little water. Arrange the taters around the possum, strip with bacon, sprinkle with thyme or marjoram, or pepper, and brown in the oven. Baste often with the drippings.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stuffed Possum

1 possum (whole)
1 qt. cold water
1/8 cup salt
5 beef bouillon cubes
2 bay leaves
3 celery stalks (chopped)
2 onions (sliced)
1 bag packaged stuffing

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Soak possum in cold salt water for 10 hours. Rinse meat in cold water and refrigerate 2-4 hours. Prepare stuffing according to package directions. Stuff possum cavity with prepared packaged stuffing. Close cavity tightly. Place stuffed possum in roasting pan, add water, bouillon cubes, bay leaves, celery and onion. After 2 hours turn meat. Reduce heat to 300 degrees. Cook for 1 more hour. Test roast, if not done reduce heat and cook until done.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cajun Possum Chili - NUCLEAR HOT !!!

Ingredients:
Tomatoe Sauce (depends on possum)
1 tsp.-1 cup Chili Powder (Depends on Taste and possum)
1 Large possum or 3 small (If you ran over the possum better make it 4)
1 large pot or two large ones if the first isn't enough.
5-10 chili peppers (depends on taste and possum)
5-10 red peppers (depends on taste and possum)
5-10 jalapenio peppers (depends on taste and possum)
How ever much Cayenne Pepper you like, it depends on your taste and possum.
1 tsp. Black Pepper
a pinch of salt
Chili Beans for extra flavor
And whatever other ingredients that are hot and spicy you would like to add.

Directions:
1. Skin possum(s)
2. Remove internal organs, head, claws, and bones. There is no flavor or use for these. But if you want to add them, Go ahead.
3. Put some tomatoe sauce in the pot(s). Then add the possum.
4. Chop peppers
5. Skip step four if you don't want chopped peppers; it doesn't matter.
6. Put the rest in and let set for a long dang while.
7. Before serving make sure you have enough bread, Milk, and Toliet paper for after dinner.
8. Serve. Enjoy
9. Race for bathroom. Whoever is first will make a large stench. Have enough air freshner.
Serving size of Meal-depends on how much you put in and on the possum.

Warning-You're a redneck if you try this. (Either that or you like really hot chili.) May cause sudden urges to go to the bathroom. May cause burned tongues and mouths. May cause severe indigestion!! ---Anonymous

That's what my grandfather used to do on his farm. Like squirrels, they don't swim very well.

Just TRY skinning one of those buggers ! Their hide is
stronger then tanned leather. They also have scent glands
that you must avoid.

Possum and taters:
cook the taters.
chuck the possum over the fence for the foxes.
eat the taters.

Three Possum Recipes



That sounds like the carp recipe I have. First you need a 2X4, nail the carps head to the 2X4 and place on a baking pan 2X4 down. Sprinkle and season to suit. Add a little water to the pan and cover with tin foil. Bake for 1 hour at 315 degrees and remove from the oven. Carefully remove the nail and carp from the 2X4. Dispose of the carp and eat the 2X4. :lol:
