Default Not fit for consumption

Question for you guys. While looking at the animals that Florida has hunting seasons for, I saw some that I didnt realize Florida had. They have seasons for otter, coyote, bobcat, beaver, etc. I didnt even think Florida had some of these animals. While looking around a little bit, one thing that I noticed is that some of these animals people kill, yet dont eat them. While Ive never hunted, I have always had the mentality that you eat what you kill. But one quote that I saw more than once is "I dont eat animals that eat other animals."

When googling to see what coyote or bobcat tastes like, the general consesus is that it smells and tastes like ass. That people shoot em, skin em, then leave em. But other animals, such as bear, its seemed like 50/50 whether they liked it enough to eat it or not.

I do have a bunch of buddies here that regularly hunt boar here in Central Florida. They all say that the bigger the pig, the nastier it tastes; and that the only edible ones are under 80 pounds. I would say I am perfectly alright killing some hogs and letting them feed our local vulture population. They absolutely destroy farms.

So my question is: What animals are you ok with shooting and not consuming?

One of the dogs dragged one into the barn one night. Was NOT happy with that doggy.

We had some neighbors whose dog got skunked one night. He was scratching at their bedroom slider and they let him in before they realized he had been sprayed.

Some people eat dogs and I have heard of them eating stray house cats. People have also eaten rats and I dont mean squirrels.

What do I shoot that I don't eat? Prairie dogs, groundhogs, crows, possums and raccoons (have eaten both, don't like them) venomous snakes too close to my domicile, and trespassers.







OK, was just kidding about the trespassers.








But you have to marinate them a long time. Or use the Crockpot.
