The pouch is called a marsupium.

Yep. I use to shoot opossums, now I let them go.

Or served with marinara over pasta of your choice. Paired with red wine of course!

I’ve shot a bunch of coons, but possums get a pass.

I used to trap raccoons in the 90's the hides were worth $20-$30 a piece. I caught a possum and skinned it out ($3.00) hide. It was full of white worms about 6"s long.

Never touched a possum after that.

Gusick did you know that the opossum body temperature is around 94 degrees. Due to their low body temp it puts them at a very low risk of developing and spreading rabies.

If I knew that, I had forgot. It makes sense to me because my body temperature is only 95-96, and I've never had rabies either.
