    "
    Mayo Clinic
    Irradiation will kill parasites in wild-animal meat, and deep-freezing for three weeks kills trichinella in some meats. However, trichinella in bear meat does not die by freezing, even over a long period. Neither irradiation nor freezing is necessary if you ensure that the meat is thoroughly cooked."

    I have a friend whose house hangs over a small river. He catches breakfast from his deck

    Sorta funny story. We have free range bunnies. Running about 15-20 right now. All different colors.

    So, while I was at the rodeo, working our concession stand, wife hears a bunny scream. Looks out, sees a fox. She tried to get him with the 10/22, but messed up. So, I figure I gotta set some traps. Figured, hey, half a trout or whitefish might work. It was late, 10:00ish, and getting dark fast. Grabbed my fly rod, walked over to the river. Thought, something in the 10-12" range would be ok. First fish that hits, 17" Cutt. Naww, can't keep him. Next one, 15" cutt. Dang it!!! The next one broke the fly off, and it was too dark to go back and get another.
    Probably get me a couple of chipmunks today, instead.
