    Looks like it'll be a little quieter around your place tonight too.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.


    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit-chat. This ain't your Grandma's sewing circle.
    EVERYONE !!

    Some years back a good mate of mine had a cane toad problem in his dam which made it toxic for cattle, fish, bird or other animal. I gave him a couple of detonators I had from military days and he wired up several pounds of black powder in large pipe which he placed in the dam and let her rip, he told me it rained cane toads and parts for several minutes and much of it landed on his roof. After inspecting his dam he found the clay base of dam had cracked and dam would not hold water again till he had it re done, to make matters worse he had to leave his home a few days later as the stink of dead toads was more than he could handle. I guess the moral of the story is, no matter how bad you think it is it can get worse. Regards Stephen

    Do you eat those things or just control the population? How do you cook them? Looks like a good time.

    Why didn't you just axe them to leave?

    Can't let Momma see this...she'd just about kill for a mess of frog legs. They are good!! We have about another month before the season opens here. We used to go out and get them before the violator's did. You had to if you wanted any!! And they weren't bashful about hitting your ponds!!

    We definitely eat them, Creole seasoning fried in panko flour- oh my goodness. Free range is so much better than frogs at the restaurant IME. The old guy on the right was basso profundo.....the gun is my Ruger Wrangler .22. Thumbcocker, you’d be surprised at what you can get if you AXE first......have a great Memorial Day everybody! Thank you for your service, Veterans! Fajitas today for company; frog legs for Mama and me after they leave.....

    I love frog legs. Years ago, a friend and I got over a hundred one night. A camp fire, and lots of beer later, we finished them off.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    I miss the many weekends i spent as a young'un roaming around ponds like that. We had very few frogs that big tho. Fried Okra and hush puppies would go good with them legs. Todd/3leg

    45 years ago, we went to visit family in the Lodi/Lockeford area near Sacramento CA. We got to my aunt and uncles and found dozens of leg-less bodies in the yard. My cousins went out gigging the night before and basically cut the legs and put them in the cooler. My aunt made them clean up the yard when they woke up. Great barbecue that evening. I wonder how they would be if prepared like hot wings?

    My grandfather (same area) preferred fishing for frogs as they fight like a bass in the water and on land. Lure of choice was a small rubber frog. I never tried fishing for them but grand dad had a good time with that.

    We usually used any old 22 Lr we had laying around. Thatís been 35 years ago. Havenít went in 25 or 30 years. On night I took the old 1896 Winchester take apart pump 22 lr my grandpa gave me. Could not Figure out why I could not hit anything more than 5 feet away. Took it home and took a 22 bullet out of its case and dropped it down the muzzle end and it went all the way to the chamber and fell out . well I donít think it even hit the sides of the barrel.20 years ago I Stupidly sold it for 50$. Now I know you can reline real easy and cheep.

    My favorite way to catch them was with a fly rod, using a scrap of red wool on the hook.

    My worst experience doing frogging, was I had stuck a knife through it's head to kill it. I always cut the skin around the back of the head, then used pliers to pull the skin off. We used the whole body, as the front legs and back do have meat to them, and we were poor.
    I had made my cut, and had pulled the skin down until it was nearly off, when it jumped from my hands, back into the pond. Obviously not as dead as I thought. It swam out a way, and floated there looking at me. I tossed the hook out, and I'll be darned if he didn't gobble it right in again. Slow learner apparently. This time I got him killed and cleaned.

    I've heard of that red yarn thing but never tried it. As with others I haven't gigged/hunted frogs since my kids were young. They loved it. I guess the funniest way I ever killed them was with a Colt Walker repro. We had two ponds on our place and one afternoon I was shooting the Walker....so I "walked" down to the oldest of the two ponds to look around. Had to catch them close to the bank. I guess I shot 3 or 4 before I "walked" back up to the house. Momma was happy....but I hate to clean frogs.
