Kentucky Color: There Was A Time

By Billy Joe Fudge

  • There was a time when squirrels were a fall and early winter food staple.

  • There was a time when Slipping Season was a marker of summer's end.

  • There was a time when about every Great Wooded South male and some females had a hunting license.

  • There was a time when a kid, his single barrel 410 or 22 automatic would strike out at daylight to match wits with the local Bushytails.

  • There was a time when the Case XX was referred to as a "Skinning Knife".

  • There was a time when squirrel gravy, fried taters, hot biscuit, Bob White Syrup and fresh churned butter would warm the soul on a frosty October morn.

  • There was a time when a good squirrel dog was worth his weight in gold and wasn't for sale at any price.

  • There was a time when squirrels knew they were a prized menu item and would never be caught out in plain sight.

  • There was a time that still resides in the hearts and minds of many older citizens of The Great Wooded South.
