Me and my Best Buddy often cooked up vermin to try, Ive eaten Woodchuck, Crow, Pigeon, Muskrat, Racoons, Mountain Lion and more than one type of "Beaver", some tasted better than others but it was more for a hoot than any particular morality thing. Eating wild untested meat eaters isnt a great idea, they often carry diseases. We dont suggest its the moral thing for people to eat rats, snakes or roaches when they kill them, why would someone treat big pests any differently?

More than one kind of "beaver"? Please, sir, elaborate. Details! Details!

But wait just one moment while I get comfortable...

Don't take this conversation there.

Bad Trip. Bad, Bad Trip.

Very good post, kfox. This, in particular, is so very true. I live in the middle of a whole lot of farm country. There is no one harder working with so little rewards than a farmer. There is no such thing as a rich farmer, I agree.

Next time I get a couple groundhoigs I'll have to try them. Any seasoning recomendations?

Lemon pepper or garlic salt can make almost anything edible. I'm sure there's some dedicated groundhog recipes out there though... Now I'm curious...

Thank you Winds. The closest thing I ever met to a rich farmer was a tobacco farmer down in North Carolina who had several daughters, half of them in their teens. The main reason he was able to make a profit? The fact that most of the local boys who were interested in the daughters were willing to come in and help tend the fields for free. Dad and I used to go over and help so we would have access to the 250 acres of woods out behind his fields, and permission to go in and fish the 3 ponds he had on his land. Joe and his family were doing well back in the 80s and 90s, not rich by any means, but living comfortablly.

Last time I talked to him, his oldest daughter and her husband are now running the farm, and they have diversified the products grown. in addition to tobacco, they now grow dent corn and soy beans. Both listened well to dad, and they are doing alright. Still not rich, but also not poor. Defiitely a rarity these days.

The former farming families that hold the 200 year renewable leases on the land on the wetside of the levee where the casinos located near Tunica, MS are doing pretty well, but they are more landlord/farmers now.

I've never tried beaver, was it juicy, like a pork chop, or dry, like corned beef..?

That's the only way a farmer can get rich is to sell off his farm. It's not all that uncommon here for a farmer who wants to retire and has no family to hand the farm down to, to sell his land to a developer. I HATE when they have to do that.
