Skull doesn't look like a beaver.  It's too small.  Maybe either a squirrel or a muskrat.  Was there any water around where the skull was?
Oh yea I just Google Imaged squirrel skulls and it does look like one.  I didn't see any water nearby...I was in a pine forest, but I suppose there could have been.

Again, not that anyone cares (except maybe MO) but I randomly found a sweet jackpot today at one of the parks near my home...

Laetiporus Cincinnatus/Sulphureus, aka Chicken of the Woods/Sulfur Shelf:



These are prized edible mushrooms that are a delicacy in some countries.  They get their common name due to the fact that they have the taste and consistency of chicken.  I sauteed one last night and it was extremely good.
I think I'm gonna make me up an omelet this morning and then I'm not really sure what to do with the other 3lbs. lol
I actually found another one that was not quite as big as the one above, maybe three quarters of the size, but some dude pulled up right behind me and was all bummed out because he had went there specifically to look for these, so I gave him mine. :)

And I also found some Coprinus Comatus, aka Shaggy Mane/Ink Cap:



They are supposed to be excellent as well but I've never tried one before.
I thought that there wasn't supposed to be a false version of this but apparently there is.  So I'm not sure about eating it now.

Pretty cool finds. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I wouldn't eat any of those that resemble deadly ones. You may only get it wrong one time and that's all it takes.  :shock: :buck2 I understand it's a hard way to die, poison mushrooms.

Maybe he ate some of those bad ones, seeing as how he hasn't been around here lately.  :shock:

 A tip I picked up from an Air Force Survival manual, Don't gorge yourself on forage your not extremely familar with. Sample a small amount and wait 24 hrs. If no ill effects you may sample slightly larger amounts. Continue this way until you can determine that it is safe for you.
 Many of them mushrooms only have ill effects to certain people. Sometimes deadly. Kinda like some people are immune to Poison Ivy.

  :shock: ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Been into some of those "special" mushrooms, huh?  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I remember one time when we were camped by the river for about 6 weeks or so. Dad had us collect some type of new to us riverbank root bulbs and he cooked them up. They resembled potatoes and tasted kind of funny. We all got sick for about 3 days.  :buck2  We laid around camp and felt like poisoned pups.
