    For those of you who've followed this from the trapping through the cleaning, here's the end product.

    In a brown gravy I like guinea a lot but the dark meat on turtle tops it.

    One of my finicky eating teenage daughters was sitting on her car outside, on the phone. I handed her a sliver of meat as I walked by. She tasted it and said how good it was then asked what it was. When I said turtle she tossed the other piece. I said, "Oh hell no girl, YOU LIKED IT." :lol:

    Your dad was a better fibber than me. Can't get past the whole nuts thing. I'm a man and ain't sucking on no balls. I guess Shane is a lucky dude.

    Set out my nets yesterday. I had one net full of bream. Meant to take picture but was in a hurry to get them in cage to keep alive for bait at the river.

    One trap had 20 strippers/cooters.

    The place I caught them is a clean up job a guy asked me to do in his pond so, as you can see bullet holes....they must die.

    I did have two in one net. Only other time I ever caught snapping turtles in my nets, I had two also.
