    Gotta fatten up Poombah before his debut on my dinner table. While on various military exercises, we've eaten anything from Mynah birds and Cattle Egrets to Mongoose and feral cats. One of the guys joked that he felt like "Alf" when we ate the cat. Meat wasn't too bad considering we boiled the crap out of it and made a fairly nice size pot of soup.

    When you're hungry, just about anything tastes good.

    I ate mice, snake and cat's meat when we went to HK -- compliment of a friend who was a chef there...I didn't know until we were back home much, much, much later when I was told -- to late to throw up. The snake was prepared like jerky. I didn't know what to think...

    I guess I've eaten just about all of that Festus. I've eaten bugs of various types when someone showed me how to cook them in a survival school. Not bad, some were pretty darn tasty. Really... they were. As for the rest of it, I'm from Louisiana. Cajuns down here eat anything that walks, runs, flies, swims, slithers, or is slower that the cajun trying to catch it. I've eaten coon and possum and it was good, but you have to know the secret to cooking them. If I walk out in my back yard, the word is: Moooooo!!! I have access to fresh beef, Chicken, and Turkey. Guineas too, if you can catch 'em. In addition, for now, the woods around my house are full of deer, rabbits, squirrels, birds or various types, and other assorted critters like you mentioned. You'd be surprised what people will eat when they are hungry. Which is why Cajun cuisine ended up using things like crawfish and nutrea. You can imagine landing here in the 1600's with nothing but swamps and mosquitoes and hurricanes. So crawfish and nutrea when you're hungry? Mmmmmm Tasty!!!

    I live in South Louisiana. The Cajuns eat anything that doesn't outrun them. If it slithers, crawls, walks, runs, swims, digs, flies or acts like it's going to land, they have a recipe for it. My wife is true Cajun. Her Parents and Grandparents barely spoke English. She can cook just about anything and make a meal. Sometimes I just don't ask what it is. I just eat. But in a SHTF situation, she can make a feast out of a can of beans, Tabasco, cornmeal and something running across the property. Shoots it and cleans it too. You gotta love a woman like that.

    You know...it makes me wonder - How many Patriots know how to kill, gut,skin and cook a critter? How many hunt? I consider these the most basic of survival skills.

    Me, I like that old country song (Hank Williams Jr, I think): "A country boy can survive".

    I better not let my wife see me reading this topic. She won't eat beef that came straight from the butcher. I don't know where she thinks Walmart gets it from, but whatever. I've been trying to get her to try "weird" stuff for ten years now, I give up. I figure if it really comes down to it, she'll eat it if she needs to.
