Glen Springs is the only "clean" water around that I can think of.
I'm hungry and tired. Don't poke my belly.

I'm thinking as long as you don't have "Donatello" engraved on a board above its pool and a couple of play toys in there you would be OK purging for a week.

If I had a desire to cook one I wouldn't think twice about purging it.

Some of the best meat I've ever eaten. If everyone had it prepared right turtles would probably be on the protected list. I try to stay away from the stained muddy waters. They bury up in mud constantly and you do have to wash em out. I catch bigger and cleaner turtles in clear 3ft of water and don't have to worry about the mud. I spray them off before I cut their heads off tho. Somebody asked about the taste of soft shelled and someone told me the other day that soft shelled are better tasting than hard shelled but I haven't tried them.
