01) BREEDING MAGGOTS, the ULTIMATE FISH FOOD (Surprising Results)! – Feeder for TROPHY TROUT


“…how to make maggots at home using only very simple tools like a bucket, drill and some rotting meat.

I wasn’t sure if our trophy hatchery rainbow trout pond fish from Lyndon would love maggots or not, but the results are surprising!

Maggot Life Cycle

The life cycle of a fly begins when a female lays an egg on a food medium like rotting meat. A female fly can lay up to 150 eggs at a time. Over a period of a few days, the female can make 5-6 batches of eggs. Eggs are deposited in compost, manure and other decomposing organic material. Eggs resemble very small grains of rice.

After 23 hours, the eggs hatch into the first larvae stage known as a maggot. These are legless white insects. They are basically worms with a mouth piece. All they do is crawl around eating voraciously. During the maggot stage, they will molt several times, once at 27 hours and 22 hours, and finally into a pupae at 130 hours.

After feeding, the maggot will find a place to pupate or cocoon into a brown hard shell. This protects the inactive fly. Over the course of three to six days (143 hours), the pupae develop legs and wings, ultimately emerging as full-grown house flies. Within two to three days, female house flies are capable of completing the life cycle and depositing eggs or mating with a female.”

Cleaning, Preparing and Eating Bobcat…

01) BOBCAT ITS WHATS FOR DINNER

Warning! Extremely Graphic!


“THIS IS A HOW TO SKIN, BUTCHER, COOK AND PRESERVE A BOBCAT VIDEO. I ALSO TAKE SOME TIME TO CLARIFY THE IMPORTANCE OF PREDATOR MANAGEMENT.”

I never would have thought of eating a bobcat…but, that looks darn yummy!

The skinning, butchering and cooking are very educational.

One philosophical quibble, however…

I disagree that humans are the most important species…We are just the most capable animal, in our normal environment…Hence, we generally come out on top.

That does not make us “the most important” of all animals.

I would say, though…that we are part of the natural animal kingdom…and as such, we are part of the “circle of life”, as some call it.

It is entirely natural for us to eat other animals…even if the process is not the nicest thing to witness.

01) The STAFF. Multipurpose, Self-defence, Survival Tool (Scottish History and Myth)


“I am very fond of my staff and some people have asked about it in previous videos. So I thought I would do a whole video looking at the history, martial uses and myths of the staff in Scottish history. As well as why I designed my staff the way it is and the different ways it can be used when outdoors or for “survival” purposes. Hope you enjoy it!”

“In this video I will show how to build a water filter using an empty 2 Liter bottle and materials that you can source from the wild. This will work with any container, whether it be a bottle, hollow wood or whatever will hold water. The More you cycle through the filter the cleaner the water will be. I was using some VERY muddy water, try and source the best water you can find. Thanks for watching.”
