    Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe Needed!

    I used a recipe cut out from a magazine last year (as I still can't convince anyone to get the family recipe!) and tried it out for Sweet Potato Casserole. However it tasted much too bitter and I wondered if it had too much Ginger to it. I typed the recipe out in full for any input as it was...

    First Snake Tanning

    Didn't eat this one (not against snake- it's good!) but used it to gauge interest from bigger predators and see who's out there. The hide is tanned and stretched and we're going to put it on the wall in the cabin with other hides. We agreed that the first of every kind of hide tanned after...

    First Snake Tanning

    Had the pleasure of tanning a small rattlesnake recently, though not a pleasure walking up on it laying blended in the Fall leaves (watch your step folks!) Used an alum paste tan after salting/stretching it and am extremely happy with the turnout. Even managed to keep the tail on. Has...

    Saying goodbye in the south

    My Grandma and Aunt would always LITERALLY have their last words be as we pulled off from their farm - “Be careful, watch for deer!”

    @CrealCritter - Would love to see photos of what you are working on next. We are getting our sawmill going again and about to start cutting. Have you ever milled up anything like Yellow Tulip Poplar or American Beech?

    Duck hatching day!

    So, the bell was basically step one. It doesn't stay in there with them, but when I'm out there with them I will set it on the ground to see if they want a snack. They get jealous if they see the chickens ringing the bell and they'll come over and scoot them aside (even if they're full.) The...

    @milkmansdaughter - I saw you posted photos of Noccalula awhile back- isn't it a gorgeous place?! We had a drought like 2....3 years back that dried the falls up completely if you remember that?

    Picture Of The Week (POW) Information & Submissions

    Wanted to enter a closeup of two deer leg bone needles on the piece of sandstone we shape them with. The one on the right was the very first one I made. A great use for the legs that get thrown out from processing (well, besides sinew/hooves!)
