Anybody love getting bullfrogs? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYLnjeTRjxg
I've never personally used a gun to get em.
I have fond memories of walking around farm ponds, and gigging them with my uncles.
Sometimes had to wade a little to get to the big ones.
Never got bit by a snake, but seen plenty.

Never used a gun on them. We would go out in the swamp at night and shine the light on them. Then one of us would circle around behind and gig them.

Moving this to the hunting section.

Add this to one thing I want to do. The video would of been way better if they showed a plate of ready to eat legs. :LOL2:

I have some good memories of giggin'. My dad and I went to a pond out on some family farm land that hadn't been interfered with by a human for some where around 15 years and I'll never forget that night. Only a small percentage of the snakes we killed were moccasins, but the frogs were big boys.

Haven't gone for them in a long time! What we used to do was use a fishing pole, tie something red on the hook, then dangle it in front of them, seems they couldn't resist grabbing it!

We had a ditch running alongside our place and the walnut orchard next door then cutting across the middle of our pasture. It was frog central. I think it was more about my brother and me sneaking around in the dark than actually catching a frog. Never used a gun like that guy on the video.

The legs sure do twitch and jump while they're cooking in the skillet. Please tell me someone else knows what I'm talking about :lol:

Makes me feel better haha.

A friend and I have talked about it and I think we will give it a go soon. I just finished up my bull barrel 10/22 for the moccasins and have scoped out a few areas that look promising.

I've eaten a lot of different stuff, but I've never had the "pleasure" of eating frog legs. Raw octopus - not a problem. Frog legs, snake or eel, chicken feet, or fish eyeballs - No thanks. I would even have okra before I would try those. LOL

Man they are delicious! And I don't mean a weird or over powering game taste. Just tender, white meat. It is almost as good as rattlesnake! :P

And I gotta tell you just like I tell my girlfriend, "You gotta try my grandma's okra if you're gonna talk like that." :lol:

Okra? I love me some okra. The slimier, the better.

When I was young it was during that era when you had to eat everything on your plate or not leave the table. Okra nights were tough. If my brother or I made too big of a fuss about not liking something, there would be a payback, and it would be clever and happen when you least expect it. I complained about pimento loaf a little too much once. Got pimento loaf in my stocking on Christmas morning. LOL.
