    Whatever that is, we don't have them around here. Is that a porcupine?

    Yes, it's a porcupine.

    My wife says I can have a porcupine but I cannot have a concubine.

    That's a little close minded of her!

    I hear porcupine tastes great, but I've never seen one in the wild. The only one I've ever seen was dead on the road.

    I have seen tape worms in Porcupines. Eating them can be risky.

    one of the few animals that can be relied upon as survival food if lost in bush, they can be easily hunted (they're not fast, easily dispatched a stone or stick will do) they have a high fat content meat which supplies a lot of energy as you will discover when you butcher it kinda like a fall bear.

    Brass410 nailed it. I have seen 2 in the wild in my life.

    They hated them at the old logging camps. Porky's crave salt, so a good axe left out overnight might be missing half its handle in the morning.

    Pulling those stickers out of a dogs nose is no fun job either.
    I truly believe we need to get back to basics.

    Get right with the Lord.
    Get back to the land.
    Get back to thinking like our forefathers thought.

    Anyone that wants to use this, feel free. Spread it wide and far.

    "Pulling those stickers out of a dogs nose is no fun job either."

    Amen, brother, Amen. My Uncle, my father and I spent the best part of an afternoon pulling spines out of Daisy's snout. Works best if you cut them first and then pull them out with pliers.

    I gave it to a bunch of folks at a survival camp to eat and utilize, I have eaten them before and it's not bad.
    Mostly I killed it because it was in my horse pasture.

    Here is a fun fact about the porkies that had me laughing myself silly. I was in the eastern Washington desert one evening and saw porky lumbering along a small basalt ledge so watched what he was doing from about 200 yards. Lo and behold he made a hop up that ledge to the next level. I had no idea that a porcupine has a four foot vertical leap from standing still. Next day I went over and even measured it. Who knew!?! That bit of useless information made the whole trip worthwhile.

    I have turned a porcupine into jerky using a Cabelas hickory mix. Can't tell what it is when cured and dried...tastes like jerky!

    I see them most years elk hunting. Couple years back there were several bears in the area I was hunting along with a healthy porcupine population. I was walking in before daybreak and put a couple to bed in a large blueberry just at daybreak. I was trailing them threw some large sage and just knew the noise was a bear before I silhouetted the first one climbing in the blueberry bush. A couple years prior one of the guys took a selfie with one one afternoon in some dark timber.

    I was surprised how many I saw between Big Spring and San Angelo, TX. Mostly dead along the highway.
