    Never tried it, but would if I had the chance. A friend of mine has eaten some, and claims it's very good. And we have had this discussion before.

    You have to take all the fat off that raccoon before it's cooked. Once you do that it's not bad.
    Also helps to slow cook it with vegs similar as used in a pot roast.

    Excellent point! How about a big helping of Javelina stew for ya'!!! "tooth:

    I've had roast javelina that was excellent. The trick is to eat a young pig or sow, and avoid the old boars. Also, take ONLY the hind quarters, and be very careful how you remove those.

    Can you expand on this part? I may put in for an AZ javelin tag this coming fall and would like to know what's what with the meat and how to harvest it properly.

    I'm from Louisiana and I thought we'd eat anything.

    You guys make Andrew Zimmern look picky.

    Between y'all and the cat hacking up hairballs on my shoes, you're making me want to barf.

    Javalina..............Ah, Jerry.....I thought I knew you. Luis....it's not too late for you. You haven't eaten one of the rodent-pigs yet.

    Funny you should word it like that. I haven't decided which one they really are yet.

    Think: soggy, glutinous, viscous mass of oily corruption and putrescence.

    With that in mind, you won't be too surprised when you eat javelina.

    I've had Cougar. Like most people here I think the cat had a very pork like texture. In fact we made pulled..... cougar BBQ sandwiches just like we do with pork back in GA where I'm from. It was delicious. The cougar was shot in the mountains west of Bear Lake Idaho with 4' of snow on the ground.

    It's been a while, but as I recall, we carefully skinned out just the hind quarters, and removed them from the rest of the body. A little ways up the back is a huge, black musk gland. I suspect it's more prominent on the older, bigger boars than on sows and young pigs. The main thing is to avoid this gland. Also, it's easy enough to identify the gland. If you ever see one, you will know it.

    Did anybody else se the video clip on Yahoo of the 3 mountain lions checking out the guy's house, caught on his video camera? The idiot says "I'm honored to live among them"- - - - -I wonder how honored he's going to feel when they're snacking on him? Those cats didn't look majestic- - - -they looked hungry!

    Missed that one, just what I would want, three large predators roaming around peeking in the windows. The mountain lions must have learned from the bears about tree huggers, they make great snacks! (Timothy Treadwell etc.)

    Hey, yuppies aren't nearly as fast as deer, or as smart! That's also in Colorado, so they won't be armed, either!

    Thanks to their vegan diet they probably even taste like deer.

    Good news is my running times are solid mid pack even at my age. I only have to outrun one.
  • TeachTeach Senior Member Posts: 18,428 Senior Member
    Since a cougar usually strikes from ambush, running isn't an option- - - - -you're lunch before you know it's there. Mountain lion attacks normally follow the same pattern.

    Yep. I got ambushed by one a couple of nights ago when I went to my usual Pub Quiz night. She leapt from the top of a bar stool when I pulled a $50 note from my wallet to pay for a round of drinks. She was one of four that were waiting in ambush.

    I had 20 acres in commiforna a few years ago.( before the divorce) had a big bunch of wild pig. I have seen pigs coming out of cow and horse carcasses many times. Growing up a friend and I ate or tried to eat every thing we shot. I have eatin redheaded woodpecker to ground squirrel. ( I don't recommend the squirrel ). Woodpecker and dumplings ain't bad. Had a horse die at cow camp once. It took us two days to cut it up we made jerky from it. Buried an old fridge and put it in there when it was done. Mule is on the stringy side so is coyot. I like beaver tail. I don't want to have to eat oppum again. The thought makes me quizzy.

    The only meat I refuse to eat is possum. Lots of southern folks like them, but after seeing a mama and her litter nesting in a very stinky dead cow, I just can't do it.


    So then you probably won't eat pork anymore either.:jester:

    No wonder you guys have a problem with wild hogs...........Over here our cows give birth to calves, not pigs!

    Chris, I'm pretty sure that it's real. It was sent to me a few years back but when I lived in Texas, I witnessed a pretty vicious fight between a couple of wild hogs over the gutpile of a deer that I had just dressed. I was almost spitting distance from them and they were oblivious to me and they even ate all the dirt that blood had spilled on. The letter attached to that picture stated that the pig was taking a nap after feeding on the cow's internals.
