Yotes, chucks, rats, cats, skunks, possums, mice, crows, pigeons and starlings.

Had a coworker, bordeine hippie ...shot crows and ate em.

Pest removal you just whack em and stack em.

Must admit, shooting a deer for my freezer gets tougher the older I get. Just like watching em.

It is irrelevant what you think. What matters is the TRUTH.

My Great Granny told about a day back in the depression when Gramps went out with his 410 to try to get something to feed their hungry kids. All he was able to shoot was two crows. She cleaned them and cooked them and they ate them. When pressed she said, “they weren’t very good, their meat is purple”. Hungry hard times in Oklahoma back in those days.

No to hogs, opossum, skunk, predators with fur or feathers, canines, felines, coons, armadillo, crows, rodents, bugs, alligators. Never shot a bear, but wouldn't eat that. Did I mention hogs? Now then if I was in a Donner or Alferd Packer camp condition I would eat it all. I do eat chicken which I guess could be a predator. Try to follow Moses' dietary rules fairly closely.

Interesting question. Having trapped for years! I don't eat muskrat, otter, wild beaver, coyote, bobcat, fisher, skunk, or any rodent type critter! I'm sure I missed something!

Shot a coyote pup this morning, in the road down from the house. Bad sick, never looked around at me when I waled up behind him, even though his head was up. Azz was all raw, covered with flies. Put a 9mm behind his ear to end the suffering. Ain’t eatin’ that...

Hogs taste good also but they eat nasty stuff and bears will eat carrion and just about anything. Trichinosis is fairly common in bears and coons. I know you can kill trichinosis worms by cooking but I just avoid carrion eaters. Alligators and turtles are the worst in fresh water and we all know oysters filter fecal matter for food. If you want to bait crawfish use bad smelling dead fish or meat. Can you imagine the water conditions shellfish from China are raised in. Jewish dietary law actually has a lot of good health reasons behind their prohibitions. As did a good many of their other restrictions. Some I don't understand such as mixing 2 different fibers in cloth or 2 different seeds in a crop.

Put possums up in a rabbit hutch for a couple of weeks and feed them sweet corn, they are pretty good. Got to clean them out first.

Have eaten a ton of coon, put some water on 'em and then in the smoker they go.

———————————

We don’t have enuff fish for bears to gorge on
so that isn’t a problem here.

I haven’t killed a bear but have eaten bear twice.
We boiled it a while before frying 1 time. The other
time it was BBQ in oven after boiling.

I’ll eat our B bear anytime.

Probably the same Mesican that told us it was Beef in our Tacos and was more than likely Dog or Burrow when we were down in Tijuana Meheco
