I would have guessed Uppsala first, and then for a beer I'd said between Queen Mary's ass!

The other dark meat: Raccoon is making it to the table
Lee Hill Kavanaugh | Kansas City Star

last updated: January 13, 2009 08:32:44 AM

He rolls into the parking lot of Leon's Thriftway in an old, maroon Impala with a trunk full of frozen meat. Raccoon — the other dark meat.

In five minutes, Montrose, Mo., trapper Larry Brownsberger is sold out in the lot at 39th Street and Kensington Avenue. Word has gotten around about how clean his frozen raccoon carcasses are. How nicely they’re tucked up in their brown butcher paper. How they almost look like a trussed turkey … or something.

His loyal customers beam as they leave, thinking about the meal they'll soon be eating.

That is, as soon as the meat is thawed. Then brined. Soaked overnight. Parboiled for two hours. Slow-roasted or smoked or barbecued to perfection.

Raccoon, which made the first edition of The Joy of Cooking in 1931, is labor-intensive but well worth the time, aficionados say."

not a crock of squirrel but a crock of shit. Seriously you'd need to eat a lot of the little bleeders to fill your belly...just not worth it but rabbits or deer ahhhhh now that is a different kettle of fish.

Here in Michigan, the government is going to slaughter 500 deer, but they won't make them available to us lowly citizens.

I like the deer. They sit in the backyard. But if they are going to kill them all, it just seems a waste.

While I have easten squirrel when I was good - and I found it quite okay - I must say that for once I agree with Roger about killing most animals.

While I don't want to be hypocritical about killing and easting wild animals, especially when it seems necessary, I do get very tired of people who justify eliminating them for the slightest reasons.

One of our pleasures in the past has been when six to eight deer come round the house for food in the coldest of winter, and I happily supply what I can. Haven't come around yet this winter, though.

The leader of the pack on the top of the rock at back is a sight to see, with all his minions scratching up what they can below. Even the sober neighbors are quite excited by the scene.

As for the birds, I go to great lengths to feed them, and more importantly water them now.

The thing that really bothers me about the whole process is when people say they like seeing them, but are really riled up when they eat something, as if they really need nothing to keep carrying on.

Recently, a neighbor was going on about woodpeckers attacking his woodword, and I told him that if he simply provided something to eat, especially something better, they would undoubtedly stop - and they did.

That is a waste unless they have concerns about the state of the meat. Also that is a lot of deer to cull as they would need a lot of vets to check each one to confirm that they can be consumed or that would be the case in the UK
