i'm sure it's not licia. (don't make me look bad luckytrim... )

lots of people in the u.s. eat all sorts of critters. it's just not as common in urban or suburban areas. often, the preparation is used to conceal the more challenging flavors, like bbq/extra sauce or breading/deep frying.

when you are raised on a dirt-farm on the west virginia-maryland border, you eat what the lord provides
i have granny's "receipts" for groundhog, possum, even a crow breast casserole.
of course there are plenty of greens recipes, collard, poke, ramp, etc.
if anybody wants a copy (in PDF) feel free to e-mail me..........

I know that there a lot of people that I have met that eat all kinds of critters. It is definately not for me though!!

I remember one time a neighbor kid shot a squirrel with a sling shot and killed it. My husband made him skin it and the kids mom cooked it and made him eat. My husband was raised that you don't kill for the fun, you kill for the food and it's not to be wasted. That kid never shot another animal except when hunting deer.

Poor people eat what they can. Beavers are clean animals, and I wouldn't hesitate to try the meat.

Cute as they are, beavers are a pest in some areas, and can be quite destructive. As mine manager for a strip mine, my husband sometimes had to resort to dynamiting beaver dams because they were blocking waterways that were needed for drainage.

i don't recall being "poor"; maybe we were, but i was never "hungry".

it's just that you don't have a store close enough to shop in but maybe once a month!

crow's breast BB........crows are rather large birds in my neighborhood, I've shot a few, but with a shot gun, kinda mangles them, but I post them in the garden as a warning for other crows as to their fate if they dare lust after my ripe corn ears again...
