    Sometimes it is a lot of work getting things to eat from the wild. Went to a Amish town and they had hickory nut pies. Had to have been a lot of work getting enougj meat out of hickory nuts to make a pie. At times the squirrels even abandon them before they have all the meat out of the hull.

    Talking about time involved with food. My grandfather passed away last year and for many many years I helped crack pecans with him. He had an automatic pecan cracker and I was the one that would feed the machine. My grandfather would then spend days finishing them and cleaning them up before putting in the freezer. Then I would crack a bunch more. On and on it went until the very last pecan. I appreciate that time more than anything now. He left me the cracker and pecan equipment when he passed away and last year was the first year on my own. I wasn't able to get them all done before bugs overtook them. I sure do miss my grandfather and those special times together.

    can be , rattlesnakes and such often lie in wait when the fruit is ripe and the thorns are coming at ya from several directions too .
    cactus spines hurt , but that there baby spine "fur" stuff will make you just itch and burn when it gets on ya .
    sometimes you pull that stuff out of your skin and clothes for a few days after you walk thru it .
    we don't mess with it ourselves , to much work of for us ,some other folks picked all them in the photo and had a half a 5 gallon beside it too .....

    The folks had peacan trees before they moved. Sure depends on which variety ya had as to how much work they are. I have shelled a bunch of them.

    One thing I can say for those native peacans. They may have been small and tougher to shell. They were moist/oily and had a great flavor.
    Pretty highly prized by people and the tree rats

    From what I remember all of the Indian named pecan trees grew fast and bared nuts earlier in their lives than some of the heritage varity trees.

    When I moved out I lived next door to the folks for a few years. I came home from work and the old man hollered for me to get that squirrel out of his trees. I walked home and grabbed a 12 gauge. BOOM. Cut that squirrel down grave yard dead. I retrieve the squirrel and I am carrying it by the tail down the hill. When I get close to the folks house the back door opens, the old mans shirt is wet and he is hollering I meant with a BB gun.
    Apparently he was about to take a sip of his sweet tea when I lowered the boom on that squirrel.
