    What to do about wild animals?

    Have a sense of humor people, some of these are a joke. But really, more people lurk than post and the most opinionated folks post the most frequent. So all you lurkers, vote and lets see what the general concensus really is.

    I'd leave a bear / cat / other carnivore alone unless it comes by very often. In Lyle's case if the cat came back after the deer was gone, I'd call DOW.

    Wild animals: It's what's for dinner!

    A little mu shu mountain lion sounds tasty. How about some cougar schnitzel?

    COUGAR SCHNITZEL

    INGREDIENTS:

    2 large boneless cougar steaks
    1 LB bacon, salami or spicy sausage
    Mix: (will curdle a bit)
    ½ cup of margarine melted
    1/3 cup milk
    1 tsp. lemon juice
    Mix:
    ½ cup fine bread crumbs
    1 cup of fine crushed Corn Flakes
    ½ tsp. onion powder
    ½ tsp. parsley
    ½ tsp. paprika
    Salt & pepper

    Directions:

    Pound steak until ¼” thickness, cut into 2″ wide strips, top with salami or bacon. Roll up and secure with a toothpick. Dip in moist ingredients, then coat with dry, place in greased pan and cover. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake 20-30 minutes more.
    A man must have enemies and places he is not welcome. In the end we are not only defined by our friends but those against us.

    Next Time Sarah Palin

    Next time Sarah Palin is flying over we can just make sure she has her gun and takes aim at some of the animals.

    Frikin animals are in the way of progress I tell you! They have no respect for private property or human superiority. They're just going to have to get out of the way and those that don't, well, they'll suffer the consequences.

    In a concurrent thread at my Backpacking site

    Regarding wild animals you've eaten, this was my list.

    Deer (Mule and Whitetail)
    Elk
    Antelope
    Bighorn Sheep
    Moose
    Bear
    Mtn. Lion

    (And the game regulations here require you to eat all of the"edible parts" of a big game animal, but don't say what . I just stick to the heart and liver )


    Rabbit
    Squirrel
    Raccoon

    Duck (about 8 different kinds)
    Goose
    Wild Turkey
    Pheasant
    Quail
    Dove & Pigeon
    Partridge
    Grouse (Ruffed, Blue and Sage)
    Ptarmigan

    Snapping Turtle
    Rattlesnake
    Iguana
    Alligator
    Frog legs
    "Hand Caught" local crayfish

    Probably 20 different kinds of fresh water fish

    Crickets
    Grasshoppers

    I'm sure I missed a lot more.

    Lots of favorites

    Goose w/apple raisin stuffing
    Grilled Dove marinated in Italian dressing
    Antelope Egg Rolls
    Goose liver pate
    Deer heart Dijon
    Margarita marinated Alligator
    Garlic butter slow cooked Raccoon BBQ Sandwiches
    Grilled Elk tenderloin
    Hasenpheffer



    Least favorites

    Bear -WAY too greasy
    Mtn Lion- too funky to describe

    Other than that, I liked them all.

    Yes, I 'harvested" most of the animals listed, and the others were from "Game Banquets" to fund "Ducks Unlimited" or from my brother.

    A guy I work with has a "beast feast" party every year.
    He cooks up all the animals he and his brother have "harvested" over the year, and serves them up.
    I have heard great reviews, but haven't been able to make it yet.
    Will have to show him your list!

    That's a pretty impressive list. Did you get the lion during a hunting season? A friend of min in South Dakota said they now have a season for them with limited hunting permits given out. In Upper Michigan they have bear season as well, but there is quite a line for the limited hunting permits.

    Not that you have to say you ate the ones that invaded your personal space and showed superior humans no respect and you had to dish out your authority via a gun that some how represents pent up anger for when a coyote ate your pet hamster you let loose in your backyard when you were 10.

    Just curious if you've ever hunted during lion season, and if so, how does hunting a lion work?

    My parents hunted everything, all the time, when I was growing up. Back then the usual tactic for lions was go out with a pack of hunting dogs and everybody else on horses. When the dogs got on a lion's scent they'd run the cat down, lion runs up a tree, dogs sit around the base, eventually you'd catch up, and shoot kitty in the head with a .22. Have to agree that lion could be the worst tasting stuff out there, except for bear.

    I don't think most hunt lion for the meat, They hunt it for that snarling head mounted on their wall.

    If I hunted and killed me one of them there mountain cats, I'd have it all taxidermied up into a "hug" sort of position, real friendly like. Because you know, sometimes I feel lonely and I just needs a hug. A mountain cougar hug.

    You'd make it into a rug, so you could get yourself some cougar, on top of another cougar

    Maybe DOW has a giant sized cat carrier, could be why their relocation program is so successful.
