The animal Fenn shot and promised not to tell? - glock20 - 09-21-2015

In the story of searching for Lewis and Clark... Forrest and Donnie shot an animal, and Fenn promised not to tell......

What animal was it? A Grizzly? or what... Why does he mention it, then promised himself or Donnie not to tell...

You guys know any more info on this???

Hi Locolobo,
Good observation... I thought of the porcupine but wasn't sure. I guess Fenn was grossed out when they took a bite of Mr. Porcupine... I am glad he tested that first, I never knew that. If I am ever starving in the woods, I'll chew on some grass or tree bark as a substitute.

Anyone remember that old tv ad with Ewelle(sp? ) Gibbons ,about eating a pine tree? This story reminds me of it. Smile

It wasn't Donnie he shot the mountain lion with. It was Andy Anderson and they were hunting in Arizona. I always thought it was the porcupine that he was referring to in TTOTC. Funny thing is that I have always heard that porcupine is delicious, especially if you're starving. Of course, I've only heard stories from people who WERE starving so there's that to consider.
