At least my wife occasionally gets to hunt, if not gather. Thursday, she dealt with a 4-foot rattlesnake on the porch. The Internet service tech came by, and he wanted it for his dinner, and she gave it to him. So I guess it qualifies as hunting for food.
So-does rattlesnake really taste like chicken?

Actually....no, it doesn't. When fried, it has a taste that is delicately reminiscent of very lean pork that was fried in oil that had been used to cook fish in...but in a good way.
To me it tastes more like frog legs than chicken.

kind of squid like flavour then,hoot? not had frogs legs for a couple of years now.used to be able to buy them at the chinese supermarket but haven't seen them for a while.bit like squid really in that you either have to flash fry them or cook them long & slow.anything inbetween & you've got rubber,but with more bounce!!

I don't like peeling & chopping onions. Haven't bought these in awhile, but they're good in a pinch.

No more tears.
