Duct tape, yeah Kevin.  Up in the high Sierra's of Lassen County CA, circa '82 
or so, we hunted nearly every night for the next days meat quite often.  
Those big desert hares were often so full of fleas you didn't want them in 
the truck with you, so we'd pop one and hang it by the back legs over the 
edge of the tailgate with a foot or so of duct tape.  We got stopped by the 
game warden one night who didn't have any problem with us busting them in the 
headlights with a 22, but couldn't figure out why we were hanging them on the 
tailgate.  City boy obviously.  Lots of fleas left in the next hour or 2 as 
we looked for more, and by dressing them under running water, the rest were 
washed away, and we had a lot less hair on the meat that way too.  I've 
always done the same with squirrels too.

As has been said, Duct Tape is like the force, it has a light side and a dark 
side and it holds the universe together, or your game on the tailgate.  :)

Not much to relate on the chicken wire or bubble gum wrappers though, sorry.

Cheers, Gene
