Beacon Bits: Snow melt releases wild meat bonanza

Re-e-published by permission from Clem Yanksey’s blog, Survival in End Times, Which, if You Haven’t Noticed, Could be Any Day Now!

Some critters, like this fox squirrel, don’t survive the cruel Michiana winter. But according to Clem Yanksey, Rocky’s loss can be your lunch. (Clem Yanksey)

Who doesn’t like surprises? Especially when those surprises mean free food!

Spring is the time when winter’s bounty cashes its check. And by winter’s bounty I mean snow-bank preserved critters. Snow meat.

Since Michiana was once again blessed with heavy snow and below freezing temperatures since Groundhog Day, the stock of preserved coon-sicles, possum-pops and deer-cones is ample indeed. If it’s dead, chances are you can eat it.

But with the days warming into the 50s, time is not to be wasted. Below is a list of what you need to collect and preserve your snow-bound varmints.

  • Car trunk or truck bed
  • Retrieval glove
  • Shovel/ice pick (for stubborn critters)
  • Skinning knife
  • Five-gallon bucket
  • Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Yanksey’s Wild Meat Cookbook (available at Jolly’s Morgue and Donuts, Bass Lake Inn/Convenience store, and Ginny’s Books and Hair)

So get out there and collect your free meat!
