    I plan on doing ALL OF THIS on 2 propane burners, a smoker, a charcoal grill, and the campfire, using only my riverside tool kit.

    Is a ole Missouri gal allowed to come too? After seeing what you are going to be eating, I would gladly do the dishes just to get to sample some of that food. :embarassed:

    Hope you have a good time and a good hunt. I am heading out to the bootheel of MO this evening after I get off work at midnight:thirty, for a 5 day hunt.
    Good luck.

    Sassy

    Becky,

    No Offense, ma'am but when Deer camp is on, we cannot allow any of them women-folk around. The occasional Pine-bunny may enter camp if she's a poor damsel in distress and lost in the wilderness, but we're more apt to guide her to the nearest road and see her on her way, than pull out a chair and urge her to sit.

    It isnt sexist... we just know that if a wife is near in this cold michigan climate, getting the fellow who belongs to that wife out of bed at 4:30 for breakfast is pert-near impossible. It is a matter of helping our fellow man haul his chubby carcass out of bed.

    Ill tell ya'all what... if you want, after the meal Ill breathe into a baggie and fedex it to ya. At the very least the garlic scent oughtta make it all the way to your front door.

    :roll_eyes: :lol: :big_smile:


    Good luck in your camp sister! I hope you get your trophy.

    Green beans. Or....broccoli, maybe.
    Don't they have vegetables where you hunt, or are you on Adkins?
    I hate to see you have to survive on such a limted diet for 3 days...LOL...

    Have fun, be safe.

    For me, it will be a bite here and a sip there- but not much of much else. Im eating mostly veggies these days. Ill have my customary feed bag full of carrots and trail mix strapped to my snout.

    :(

    Gotta drop the pounds, bro.

    I have only 9 weeks left on the crash diet- I cant play too much.

    It isnt on the menu cause they all dont drink. None of us do when playing with weapons. No offense if you do.

    Im cooking with a few alcohols... and may take a snort or two o that apple jack before adding the hot stuff to it- but a few sips would be it for me or any of us.

    Well over 150 years of hunting experience in my family and no injuries or mistakes... alcohol free isnt such a bad idea... there are many other occasions when it is more apropriate. :wink:

    Enjoy yourself and be safe, friend.
