Teen-Agers Not On Cell Phones

I live in a small town just outside the city limits. It has allot of woods, few houses, and of course wild deer, hogs, and cyotes. In front of my house I noticed a Sheriff had stopped a couple of kids who were about 13-14ish carrying stick bows and arrows. Of course I walked out and butted in, its my house. Soon we all started talking about our stick bows. We admired two of one of the boys hand made arrows of knapped flint, sinew, buzzard feathers, and pine tar, on a bowdark shaft. One of the boys had a skinned rabbit in a plastic bag hanging from his belt. It was a pleasant and reassuring conversation. I am sure these boys parents were as proud of them as I was now too. After they disappeared into the woods I asked the Sherrif what happened. He said he got a call from a lady down the street who reported some hooligans with bows and arrows rampant in the neighborhood. I said, "Oh, I know, shes that lady who just built that house down the road." He said he could not say kinda nodding his head, "Guess shes not from around here".

After a few seconds he said, "Ya know its August and that rabbit looked pretty good. Must be all the rain". My reply, "Yep, noticed that too..."

i see it here in winslow, too. kids hiking around with fishing poles, guns (pellet? i don't know), or just generally gallivanting on bikes or skateboards. it's poor'ish rural town and though i'm sure some of the kids have a phone, they still know how to go outside and play. it's nice

Ditto here in California back in the late-1960s - early 1970s. We lived near an Indian reservation, the kids used to go to school with us, and we'd go there to shoot targets with bows & arrows, sometimes with BB or pellet guns, and on special occasions get to try 22LR rifles. Nobody reported us back then 'cause they could see what we were doing and we were doing it safely ('common sense'). Good times. Glad to hear some kids somewhere in the USA still get to do that.

Rabbi, cooked right, is yummy. Good for them.

White wine braised with Dijon over egg noodles.





I rode across the country and then some in ‘99 without a cellphone or GPS device. With today’s thinking, I should have died.

I did that cross country ride in '81... didn't even have a credit card, much less a cell phone or gps.

Picked up paper maps and advice, as I needed it.

Karens and Do-Gooders make life worse.

She probably feels self righteous completely missing the point that she potentially introduced a whole other level of violence into the situation.

The great thing about rabbit is that it stews within the hour and goes great with beer.

Find your way by yourself? Stay out of trouble by keeping your eyes open? Remembering where you went ? Asking people for direction? Suicide.

Kids dont do this stuff around here, at least I dont see them getting together to do it. All they want to do is play video games and procreate. Gone are the days when kids actually enjoy their playtime outside.

I grew up most of my teen years next door to a park. Fairly large with three ballfields, concession stand, basketball court, and multiple picnic areas...all surrounded by a bunch of woods.
A friend and I used to go over there during appropriate seasons and shoot rabbits and squirrels with pellet rifles, take 'em home, skin and eat. Squirrel on a spit with Bullseye BBQ sauce is purdy good!

I figure we were both about 15 or so and there was a ranger who came down through the park a couple of times a day to open/lock/check on everything. About that time some other yoots had been shooting out the lighting on the fields. We knew the guy well enough in passing. One afternoon as he was coming down to close up we came walking out of the woods with our rifles and a brace of squirrels. He stopped us to ask about the lights and wanted to see the color of our BB's, to which we replied that our rifles didn't fire those, we both used pellets. The conversation instantly went to the friendly side. He had the crew replacing one of the field lights pull BB's out of the housing so we obviously weren't the ones.
Talked for a moment about responsible ranging and not being there when crowds were around...we were already about that aspect, and were invited by him to responsibly hunt the park any time.

I’ve never eaten a rabbi. Probably not kosher.

You got me interested, so I looked it up. You are correct. It is not kosher. But it is tasty.

Doesn't that depend on how he's butchered by a qualified judaist?

Not always. Some types of animals are strictly forbidden, regardless of how they are butchered.

So only cleft hoove ruminate rabbi's. I read about the Kashrut a few years ago, I was quite impressed with the length the butchers have to go for animal well being.
