Re: Turtle hatch

Pitchy you'll be glad you missed the "cuisine" at last week's annual dove party. Besides piles of doves, my crazy Cajun neighbor brought a big plastic tub of goat testicles :shock: which he seasoned Cajun style and breaded in cormeal and fried like catfish. These farmboys have been trying to get me...

Re: Turtle hatch

Thanks guys, Todd you now have family in five point lake. :)
We`ve been watching over the nest for a couple months as skunks like to dig up the eggs so we covered the nest with a cage.
Weird critters guess they can stay in the ground all winter and hatch in the spring if it turns cool to early.

Turtle hatch

A painted turtle lays some eggs in the yard a few months ago and they hatched today.
We took them to the lake and let them loose. :)

Re: What are you doing to get ready

Great thoughts all, we do have a old root cellar that was here when we moved in. We have lots of lakes close by to get ice and fish from but i`m wondering if it would be as dangerous as the gold miners bring out they`er catch. If ya can get water from a well putting it in a bucket and freeze it then...

Thanks for the replies fellers, another thing to think about is the freezer or refrigerator, winter freezer isn`t a issue but summer it will take a ice box.
