21 Why the "It's Not News" disclaimer at the beginning? I didn't see any talking heads opine on the need to ban highways or some other such bullshit that is played off as 'news'. Simply a video of ducks crossing the road, what actually happened, no spin needed. Seems far more 'news-like' to me than 99% of CNN's programming.

Well, it's because those deer crossing areas are always such high-traffic areas. They're having to move where there's less traffic.

Posted by: Hollowpoint at December 27, 2012 01:20 PM (SY2Kh) Best recipe for duck:1.Procure a duck of some sort, preferibly prior to the beginning of putrification, as that makes it worse.2. Procure a clean, green, freshly hewn white oak plank, large enough to hold the duck securely.3. Apply fire to duck and plank.4. Throw the duck in your shitty neighbors front yard and eat the plank.

39 Ducks are tasty but I have no desire to hunt them. There are too many species, with different rules for hunting each kind.

If you shoot the wrong bird you could be looking at jail time, a big fine, and the loss of your gun(s).

But when I find them on a menu it's likely that is what I will order.

67 This last summer, at the course I golf at, I watched from about 40 yards away, a bald eagle swoop down and eventually pluck a baby duck from a pond. One of the guys I was playing with looked at me and said, that was not dinner, that was just a snack. Sure enough, walking past the same pond 2 holes later, the eagle was back sitting in a tree waiting.

76 Duck, if prepared correctly, is fantastic. Must be farm raised so it doesn't taste like liver. Duck Skin (crispy) and duck fat are the SHIT! My mother in law prepares duck that just melts in your mouth. I usually eat it to the point of being ill. My impulse control is impaired.

When my daughters were little, they had gone to a swimming pond and caught a tiny frog that they kept in a jar. I told them that we couldn't take care of the frog and that we should release it to the wild. We took it to a nearby pond and released it. Seconds later a fish swallowed it as it swam across the pond. They will probably be telling a psychiatrist about that in the future.

If kept indoors where they belong, cats are fine pets. Outdoors they are a feral invasive species that pose a threat to native game and wildlife.

If it comes between a choice of having an adult grouse, pheasant and duck on my table, or giving your cat a few minutes of amusement when they indiscriminately kill them as babies, your cat loses.

50My experience tells my that all those who claim to know how to cook duck are lying.

There's a bigdifference between wild duck and farm-raised duck.
With a wild bird, the texture is going to be tougher...as well as having a 'wild' flavor.

I use chopped apples to stuff wild ducks and other game birds with.
Using fruit as a stuffing helps to take the gamey taste out.
And also slow cook, covered, for a while longer than I would with a farm-raised bird.

95 True duck story, I used to live on a large lake, and one of my neighbors would feed the wild ducks and geese all year round, until they were totally tame and trusting toward him.

When wild fowl season came around, like a pied piper, he would lead them up into his garage where the door would shut, and they were never to be seen again.

The horrors that must have occurred in that structure would be worthy of a Stephen king novella.

98 Cute. Kind of reminds me of the deer crossing the road at work. I swear they look both ways and wait for us to stop before they cross. Good thing, too; the ones that don't learn to do that get hit.

One night a couple of weeks ago, I was on my way out of work and had to stop to let about eight deer cross the road. One at a time. At a very slow walk. Worst parade ever!

Yes, they are the panda WoW things, and, no, you are not the only one.

Fucking WoW. I had pretty much kicked the habit *hides Secret World stuff behind my back* and then I got the email that Kung Fu Panda was half off and since I still have a crapton of time on my account I thought, hey why not.

Apparently, I have never met me and I forgot how ummm let's just say focused I can get with it. Thank fuck I don't raid.

The taste might go down better...with bacon.

For me, the taste of Maple-anything, always reminds me of bacon.

122 I use chopped apples to stuff wild ducks and other game birds with.
Using fruit as a stuffing helps to take the gamey taste out.
And also slow cook, covered, for a while longer than I would with a farm-raised bird.


You're doing it right.

My Mom would cook wild duck we shot with apples and sometimes a couple strips of bacon on top for the extra fat. It was excellent.

Where we hunted there was a lot of soybean, corn, and wild rice available. This made for wild duck that wasn't terribly gamey.

123 Goat is only good when you roast it in a hole in the ground for 12 hours. The grease all drains away.

124
If you are a mean kid, you can have a lot of fun with chickens. Get yer fishin' pole and a kernal of corn. Drill a small hole through the kernal of corn, tie the monofiliment to it and toss it among the chickens. When one grabs it and wolfs it down, wait a few seconds and jerk it back out. The chicken will squawk and raise hell, then run right back and eat it again. You can do this for hours, or until your Grandmother catches you.

Never heard of them before. A quick search says that Murphy Village is in North Augusta. That is a long way from me.

Yep, bacon on top is always a good way to keep the breast from getting too brown.

Duck is also good with the taste of oranges...so sometimes I add orange cubes to the apple-stuffing.
And then put some orange slices around on top of the bird, while cooking it covered...but remove those and add bacon slices for the browning during the final stage.

Yeah- I quit WoW cold turkey some time ago after a work schedule change, and haven't been back despite a couple of pleas to return. It was getting to the point were I felt obligated to raid 3-4 nights a week, sometimes pressured for more.

When a game feels too much like a job- complete with schedule- it's time to quit or at least take a break.

137 Canadian Geese are the worst. They don't even try to hurry up across the road, or turn back or anything. They glare at you and deliberately slow down. Like they're daring you to hit their protected species asses. I'd take the geese up on their challenge but I don't need the fine, nor the goose-splatter up in my grill. Stupid geese.

138 Best recipe for duck:
1.Procure a duck of some sort, preferibly prior to the beginning of putrification, as that makes it worse.
2. Procure a clean, green, freshly hewn white oak plank, large enough to hold the duck securely.
3. Apply fire to duck and plank.
4. Throw the duck in your shitty neighbors front yard and eat the plank.

Apparently isn't interested incatching anything. My other two are indoor kittehs though. I like knowing where they are, they're not as smart as the Schmoo is.
