    I like lobster, don't eat it very often. It's really the only shell fish I'll eat, can't do shrimp. Anything that looks that much like a bug is off the menu.

    I developed a shrimp allergy as I got older, it happens to most of the men in the family. I loved the little buggers until then. Crawfish is ok. Lobster is just a big overpriced crawfish. Crab I'm ok on. I'd rather have fried catfish or alligator. I won't eat a raw oyster or a big snail neither.

    Them branch turkeys are some good eating also. Those hind legs are just like a drumb stick. They kind of taste more like chicken than turkey though.

    I ate coon when I was a kid. We were dirt poor.

    When I was a kid, I ran a small trap line. I skinned a few possums. Not gonna eat one.

    One wild meat that I do like is porky pine.

    Years ago we were eating deep fried oysters. My wife asked me how did they pack those things with spinach.
    When I told her that it was not spinach, she spit it out and refuses to eat them any more.

    Take care

    That's funny.

    I try different recipes and things once in awhile.

    Something I'd heard about, but never ate was beef tongue.
    So, one day, I saw them at the store and bought a couple. I fixed 'em, it wasn't bad.

    The next day I took some to work.
    One of the guys was eating it, chewing away, said he liked it, and asked what it was.

    I told him, and in mid-chew, he unloaded it right there in the trash.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    When famine hits you will eat things you never dreamed of. That is why Chinese cuisine has some of the strangest things. Who would eat a rotten black egg or fermented shank. My daughter who is a chef has gotten into urban foraging. She says there is an is untold amount of edible thing even in city parks. you just have to know which ones are tasty and which ones will make you sick. Knowledge or ignorance are keys to survival.

    My third cousin and his wife I considered grandparents use to make it all the time in the late 70’s and early 80’s when I was a kid. They were big into coon hunting and always had a nonstop crockpot full every fall. It always had a pretty strong taste but I ate it.

    My dad used to tell of fishing in Lake Charles before WWII and giving gar he caught to an old guy fishing next to him. A couple of days later, he's back there and the old fella walks up and gives Dad a small brown paper bag with what looked like hushpuppies in it. Dad tried one and told the fella that was some of the best eats. Gar Balls. My oldest grandson was fishing with friends and called and asked if I wanted a gar. Told him, sure. He brought it home and I cleaned it. Made a cut along the spine and used tin snips to cut through the hide. Fileted it, so I didn't have to mess with the guts. Poached the filets, made mashed potatoes and added fresh garlic and green onions along with cajun seasoning and beaten eggs. Mixed everything up, rolled into 2 inch balls and rolled in seasoned cornmeal. Fried those babies up, and Gar Balls! Pretty tasty eats, as Dad would say.

    They get big. If you set about it, getting one over 40-50 pounds isn't that hard.
    Also there are a few different kinds, some never seem to get more than about 12-15.
    State record alligator gar is around a hundred.

    FYI, it was over 3 feet long, not sure its weight. I got about 3 lbs of filet off it, and didn't worry about getting close to the bone.

    I eat coon and make sure you remove the fat and glands that is what will make it not be good to eat. I also grind up some with beaver meat . good eating there for burgers mix in what you like with it and use for what you would use ground meat for and meat loaf . I eat sea foods all type . and crayfish . beside all type of fish. Just pickle some red horse suckers and white suckers . I eat muskrat also. and possum. It is all depend how it is all fix.
