peepers at night. Unfortunately, the temperature dropped and we didn't
hear/see/catch any (just as well, the one thing no one figured out ahead

from finding a nice place where lots of minnows could be found, a few
crayfish, and seeing a pair of beaver, we found Gregor... a large (2-3,"

coconut shell and.. ahem the lids off a few jars (Hey, we were
So far so good.. he killed and ate part of the feeder gldfish we threw
This should be a pretty interesting thing to try, keeping something
