We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Readers may not have heard much about Heritage Turkeys. There have been many breeds of farm turkeys over the years, but today the bland Broad-Breasted White breed is the mass market turkey.
Heritage Turkeys are genetically closer to their wild ancestors, have far more flavor, and run to smaller sizes. Their meat is redder than that of the Broad Breasted White. They are growing in popularity because they do not taste like cardboard. In fact, their flavor is similar to Wild Turkey.
It's like the difference between a supermarket tomato and a home-grown variety.
A question for you. My daughter is interested in her own firearm. She has been borrowing a 22 from her workmates and together they have been picking off rabbits and other small game for evening meals. She would like to graduate to something more powerful and perhaps larger meals.
Are you familiar with any lightweight rifles? Something that could possibly fit into a pack, for extended trail and backcountry stays.
These birds cost a little more? Are you friggin kidding me? Nine dollars a pound for a turkey?! I bought a 10 lb. free-range turkey from my local co-op for $20. It's only good or good for you if it's prohibitivelly expensive. Right? Friggin foodies
