He roasted that bad boy in the oven of his wood-burning cook stove until the meat just slid off the bones. When he piled up a plate for me, I admit I was a little wary. I asked him what raccoon tasted like, and he answered, “Well it doesn’t taste like beef, and it doesn’t taste like chicken. It just tastes like coon!” Indeed it did! I ate a couple of platefuls.

WV, Thank God!
Meat is meat.

Anyone that'd eat an oyster will eat anything.


"Want" is my price guide.

Where did you get the fur hat made or where did you buy it?

Great. I have been there a number of times (live in Minnesota), and happen to have a few tanned beaver furs. Thanks.

They are called trapper hats here and are available all over the place.

When worked on the N Slope, asked a Native what he was going to do on his off time, response was trap rats, I asked him what they tasted like?

He thought for a while, then responded like Rat!
