Anybody use crawfish for eating while bushcrafting? I have em as often as i can (Summer-fall). They are usually very plentiful where i live and there are few (if any) restrictions on bag limit. How do you like to cook em? How do you like to catch em?
I like to boil in hot water after they are done i remove all i am not going to eat and season the rest with bay seasoning and pepper. (Butter if i bring it or oil too)
Alot of people like to trap em which is easy and effective you can leave the trap out overnight and the traps are quite easy to build. Personally i like to catch by hand with a pair of goggles and any extra fish guts or scrap food. Toss in the food wait maybe .5 hrs and sneak into the water. when you get close enough with your hand grab behind the pincers and apply pressure to the creek bottom and grab em out (Gotta be quick). If they spot ya first then i like to use one hand to distract them while sneaking my other hand behind them and grab em.
If doing it by hand make sure to change water regularly in storage bucket (or just build a crawfish corral out of stones) Crawfish need a certain amount of oxygen in the water to survive.
