I just could not figure out this thread. The sticky tape keeps them alive so they are fresh. Those lil buggers are good eating. A little hard to filet but good eating.

Aarrgh! My eyes... Been avoiding opening this thread for days in fear of what I might find...

Of all the ideas, this one is tops. If I were a mouse stuck on a sticky pad, getting rum drunk would be a great way outta this world. And the investment in an ounce of rum for the mouse's happy send off oughtta gain some karma points...

But as HelloSailor pointed out OP is in California. Don't throw him overboard lest the greenies hang you from a yard arm for putting the toxic tray in the water...

That was me. I've killed plenty of mice in my time, but when I use the live traps I take the little guys a couple of miles away from the house (we live miles down a dirt road). They don't come back, and the hawks, owls, bobcats, snakes, and coyotes probably get half of them. The other half eat seeds and berries, like nature intended.

In the city, or in a marina, I agree -- it's best to dispose of them permanently and humanely.

what a mousy attempt to get to me

besides if a chef starts talking about cooking a mouse you should worry a little

far as giving the mouse some rum to help it's journey; only if if has been filtered though your kidneys first!

Don i had to see if the posters were right that a mouse is good bait so i looked around for a fish that always bites. You know how it is away from civilisation, sometimes the hunter becomes the hunted

Once you take the skin off it is next to impossible to tell the difference from a rat, rabbit, or other varmit. You can always tell someone that it is a baby rabbit.

Re: So, you catch a mouse on a sticky tray - then what ?

Marinate said varmit in white wine for 3 hours or overnight is possible with herbs deprovidense and shallots.

Pat dry then toss in flour with salt and pepper. Pan sear till brown on all sides in olive oil and butter. Take out varmit, add diced celery, carrots, onion, cook 5 minutes, add red wine, deglaze pan, add in veal stock, reduce, check for seasonings, add varmit, put in 350 oven covered for 2 hours. Check to see if tender.

Serve with sauce on side, potato custards, fresh grilled asparagus, strawberry triffle for dessert, tossed salad to start.

Serve with an appropriate year of mad dog 20/20

Prehaps as a cruising form it would be useful to bring an international perspective to the discussion. Prehaps some ideas from the use of this other rodent may be useful.
