I wonder what sloes hunting is?

Linda Tucker

Mabel told me a while back that sloes are a wild berry rather like plums. I think it might be the fruit that flavors sloe gin.

Neil Brumfield

Daddy and Mama would take us Sloe picking on the hills around the gravel quarry (on Mr Edmon's land) and near the indian wier in the river on the south side of Highway 40. Sloes are wild grapes that grow on a vine. Seems to me we also picked hazelnuts from bushes at the same time.
