theres just so much cool stuff to hunt in America , I just assumed ....
Mountain lion is pretty good, I have tried far worse, including Alaskan Brown Bear (really bad but I had to try it,) beaver (horrid really dark meat), horse meat (never again) Javelina (just nasty smelling critters) not a fan of Black Bear, on the plus side of North America game Elk, Moose, Bison, Caribou all excellent, deer is good
10/4 big buddy???? :-) Sounds right out of the 70s when CB radios were the big thing LOOOOOONG before cell phones were even thought of
"I've got the hammer down" Where's Smokey and the Bandit today?
you must be the real deal eating all that crap mate wild man jack :laughing:
but then again that's utalising what you take
my mate in Canada tells me that moose is the best table fare of your deer species , is that about right
and bison is said to be darn good also
ive eaten elk and that's almost as good as our samba deer
it is out of one of them old movies ,
that was playing when I was snozzing on the couch on sunday evening before going back to sea and ive been saying it for the last couple of days
no spikey I don't eat ham either mate ,pate maybe if knew what was in it
Have to agree with Arizona about the Brown bear meat...yuck! Tried it and not again.
Made a stew using Wolverine, Lynx, Caribou & Black bear. Took it to work and within minutes the croc pot was emptied, was awesome eats.
Any Black bears that are have been eating berries are more then welcome to grace our plates at dinner..Those that are heavy on fish don't get invited over for dinner:D
As far as mountain lions go, there are a couple of U.S. states that require the hunter to quarter the trophy and take the meat to the check-in station. If they do not want it, it goes to a food bank. Lots of westerners that hunt them eat it...Maybe there is a member on here from one of those states who could comment further..
And, as for you guys squeamish from eating an animal like a wild boar because you are afraid of what they comsume, you are being a bit naive... Just about every animal on the planet will comsume something nasty from time to time to survive. Almost all newborn mamals consume feces from their parents to get bacterial cultures in their systems necessary for their immune systems to develope...
From that mindset, lobster & king crab would have to be the most vile, disease-ridden creatures on the planet based on what they comsume. They are scavengers... They eat rotten flesh and feces of other marine creatures...Feel free to send me all of your unwanted lobsters and crabs...I'll be glad to take those filthy animals off your hands anytime...
Firehuntfish, you do have a good point. I didn't know that lion meat went to food banks. I will have to try it.
Yeah, I never thought cougar or mountain lion, if you prefer, was commonly eaten until I saw it featured on one of these TV hunting shows. The outfitter was explaining the process to the hunter after the cat was taken. They actually cooked some up and showed them all trying it out....They said it compared closely to rabbit in taste.... I believe the state the cat was taken was Utah, but I'm not certain....
Rabbit? That is interesting. I would have thought that it tasted like a rich dark meat.
I don't eat pork for the simple reason I don't like the taste or texture of the flesh I try not to even touch it(forwhat its worth I don't hunt it on this principal ) .
and crab meat is to rich in taste and crayfish (lobster) leaves a after taste in my mouth that I find disagreeable , now deep sea bugs are a crusteacean that I eat at evry opportunity and I would hate to think what they consume to survive . I will post a picture of one of them over the next day or so (once I catch one. so you can maybe put a name to them )as we generally see them daily and its hard to keep them alive for market so we let em go usualy .
and some of the crap ive eaten that ive hunted here just so I can say ive eaten it aint real flash either .
but theres some things that I cant bring my self to ingest and im sorry mate but that's just me .and I cant see it changing anytime soon
mounain lion is very light colored and mild flavored , they prefer to kill and eat fresh meat and are excellent table fare, great chicken fried steaks. Most meat taste relates to how it was handled.
I attended a hunter s dinner where the cook prepared wild boar in seven different ways. Delicious !
