Only Wednesday and I am already losing sleep concerned with what I will cook for the game. I am leaning towards a fresh squirrel and rabbit gumbo with Andouville sausage served over popcorn rice and garlic bread.
How's that sound?

On the short ride home I called a buddy and asked him about a piece of hardwoods near his home. He told me the kids had shot all the squirrels a couple of weeks ago but I was welcomed to see if one survived. So, I was there for daybreak Sunday monring. At 7:15am I saw one grooming himself at the very top of a tree. I put the crosshairs on him and he made a big thump when he hit the ground. Then, one barked behind me at 15 yards and I nailed him too. Walked 30 yards down the tree line and saw two chasing one another. Placed the crosshair on him and pop! The other took refuge behind the tree and a few minutes later I saw it peaking at me from the backside of an oak. He too was soon on the ground and that went on till around 9am when I had my limit of eight.
Last weekend I went on a dove shoot in Pickens County, Alabama. We wouldn't be heading to the dove field until 1pm so on the drive up Friday, I called an old friend from Aliceville that met me at 8am with his three Basset Hounds. We shot two limits of rabbits by noon!
Squirrel and rabbit gumbo is whats for dinner gametime!

Alright, I couldn't get any takers on the ND / Oklahoma game.
I'll put up a couple slabs of KC ribs and fixings on Alabama if one of you Cajuns will put up some crawfish for a boil come next spring on your Tigers?
Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own end of the block.
KC ribs? Puhlease. The ribs we do are far superior.
