    I unknowingly ate dog once and had this strange need to sit in the middle of the road and, well you get the picture. After some of the things you guys have eaten, MREs would be a blessing I think. Regards Stephen

    We grew up poor until I was about 11. Mom would buy ox-tail and cows tongue that I can remember. The cow tongue was tender and not too bad but I can't say I would eat it today. The ox-tail made great tasting soup and you could pull some of the meat off the bone....an acquired taste. I did love the Government meat in the 5lb can my uncle used to get for us. He would trade some pork or beef for a tin of the beef and then give it to mom. It was great stuff tender and no fat or anything. Living in the city we never got to try the critters but were lucky enough when it came to wild rabbits and pheasants when in season. My mom would cook rabbit with chicken and cream of mushroom soup.

    I really don`t recall eating anything strange.I do like octopus and squid.Fried versions.My Father mentioned eating Manatee(Sea Cow)and said it was pretty good.There was a tree hugger present,and heard that.She had a hissy fit.Was going to report him for killing one.I said go ahead.Just hope whoever you call has a great long distance system,as my Father had died in 1994.Plus the eating of the fore mentioned animal occured before the war,the FIRST WW that is,you ain`t got a leg to stand on.Got real red faced and then shut her idiot mouth.HeHeHe.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.

    Gonna try dogfish(bowfin) this year. After all these years of growing up on the river for decades upon decades I would just remove them from society so they wouldnít eat baby ducks after I catch them. This year its game on, slimey dogfish fillets it is!

    Never tried frying up row (egg sacks) yet so itís also on my list this year. Iíll have the pepto Bismo and TP handy.lol

    I've eaten fried rattlesnake. It was good. Roast raccoon, also good as long as you avoid the fat. Alligator, many times. I guess that's strange to some people. Deer heart and liver, also probably strange to some. And several other things that some might consider strange, such as ostrich jerky.

    Bowfin is like eat catfish but not as strong .I think you will be better off to scale them first before you fillet them because it will be mushy to do it with our the skin on. But is good . Looking forward to get more this year when the water on the Mississippi River is down that I can take my canoe on the back waters.

    They are like mosquitos in back of the house. I can catch them non stop...every couple minutes on live bait when its in the 90's or above. The meat is mushy and feels greasy like lard. I watched some youtube videos of the meat getting firm after cooking so I'm going to sack up and try it.

    This thread makes me hungry! All in the perceptions of the diners.

    The calamari in Tn is not so good, the calamari in Alaska, was to die for! Seal tasted good but set heavy on my stomach. Moose heart stew was yummy, as is Caribou. Bullfrog, rabbit, sheep, rhea(South American ostrich)tasted like a sweet beef, goat(chevron), I love Beluga whale vs bowhead whale, but both are good if fixed right. Sheefish rocks! I love duck, and eel!

    I have accidentally swallowed flying insects before, does that count?

    Also I was tricked into eating rattle snake at a barbeque.

    And I like to frequent Chinese restaurants so it is likely I have eaten the odd house cat and dog or three.

    Besides that I pretty stick with the basic four food groups: Cows, pigs, chickens and elk

    That is why I stated to descale them and then fillet the Bowfin. I done some up and seen that it wold be best with the skin. Yes the meat dose firm up after cooking .Like I stated it almost like catfish . Looking forward to get more this year. I did watch some You tube on them .
