    Probably close to Horse Meat, and people been eating that for many years.

    Many a grunt probably ate his mule back in the day. I read about when our guys were holding out on Corregidor they ate the mules. So what's a Zebra but a wild mule.....Horses and Mules eat a mainly vegetative diet. They should be like eating Beef!

    Well, with the right seasonings and preparation, darn near anything is edible.

    That right there, is why I've always thought a "Texas Safari" ain't the worst idea in the world, you get to keep ALL the meat. In Africa, you'll eat what you kill (including EVERYTHING) but only while you're there. Non of it is ever wasted, but it would be nice 6 months after the hunt still being able to eat some eland steak or zebra sausage. Now if only it didn't cost 2x as much!!

    That's the kick. Shooting 1 Zebra here costs as much as maybe 5 plains game there!!!

    You want a real shocker, look at TX eland or kudu. Eland costs more then 2x the African price, plus several animals, plane tickets, daily fees, etc COMBINED.

    I have no desire to pay for a Texas "Safari".

    I've been on plenty ranches here that hold African game. Yeah. It ain't "hunting" with any sense of effort.

    And from what I've read, few African Safaris are either these days.

    I would have to search long and hard to find an African hunt I'd be willing to pay for if I had the money.

    Don't get me wrong. If one of my rancher buddies called and said, "I have too many (insert African Game) on my place. Come over and shoot 1/2/3/4....."

    Boy.........I'd do it in a heartbeat!!! But, I don't quantify that as hunting and I sure wouldn't pay for it.

    Then again, if the same guy called and said, "I have too many cows/sheep/goats/horses/chickens/cats/dogs/llamas/gophers.......on my place. Come over and shoot some."

    Boy, I'd pack my guns just as fast.

    I don't discriminate.

    Money is the big issue. Doing it old school, hundreds of miles in the middle of deepest darkest Africa isn't horribly expensive for the actual HUNT. But that usual involves several plane rides, then charter flights or days driving to get there. Think of like landing in Houston, taking a charter fight to Amarillo, then driving to the OK pan handle. Those ones are still tent chalet, generator electricity, very wild places. Popular for DG hunts, not as much for PG unless there are specific animals only located there. The ranches are much cozier, cheaper and easier to get to. More popular for PG because they bring in animals not normally found there, so you can hunt all the species on your check list at the same time. Easy shooting, if you're not after something specific, or are focused on a certain size. Anywhere in Africa, wild or farm, there are going to be animals EVERYWHERE. If all you care about is shooting X species, super easy. Shooting a trophy, not always.

    Interesting, Clean is very picky and she ate some our son shot near El Paso
    I would eat more of it, also.

    Must be near term diet for the animal.
