I have actually eaten beaver tail a couple times (baked and grilled). It stinks and tastes like smelly rubber gelatin. When you grill a beaver tail, it blows up like the old Jiffy popcorn and finally explodes. The only way I can partially stomach it is drenched in hot sauce. When I watched Dual Survival and heard the comment that beaver tail is a "delicacy", I couldn't wait for them to actually eat the tail. The looks on their face said it all. It's horrible.

This thread is in terribly poor taste, and a welcome relief from all the horror and sadness of the past months. Between the Aurora shooting, Newtown shooting, and Boston Bombings, I can't remember a period when I was drawn to tears so often, and so easily.

So thanks for the laughs this morning, guys - we all need a laugh right now. If beavers are to be the catalyst, then so be it! And in the spirit of poor taste and laughter:

An 80-year-old says to the doctor, "I've never felt better! Life is great and I now have a 20 year-old bride who is pregnant with my child. What do you think about that?"

The doctor considers his question for a minute and then begins. "I have an older friend, much like you, who is an avid trophy hunter and never misses a season. One day, when he was going out hunting, he was in a bit of a hurry and accidentally picked up his walking cane instead of his gun. When he got to the creek, he saw a prime beaver sitting beside the stream of water. He raised his cane and went 'bang, bang'. Suddenly, two shots rang out and the beaver fell over dead. What do you think of that?"

The 80-year-old said, "I'd say somebody else pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver."

The doctor replied, "My point exactly."

Don't forget Beaver Liquors in Avon. They have some hilarious t-shirts; one of which The Man purchased that cannot be worn in public. :shock: :wink:

As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

There's always Beaver Sports in Fairbanks. The "local" mountaineering/ski/bike/etc shop for interior Alaska. Next shop is a 6 hour drive, or 1 hour flight away! Spent way too much money there on gear, when Sierra Trading Post didn't have the item in question

Kentucky is well known for its place names, like Stinking Creek, Stab, Looney Creek. Among them is the town of Beaver Lick. We are so proud.

Isn't there also a Monkey's Eyebrow in Kentucky?
