    I know a good opossum recipe that I always heard when I was little:

    Nail the opossum to a 2x4.
    Put the 2x4 and opossum in a pan.
    Add potatoes, onions, and salt and pepper.
    Cook at 375 for 2 hours.

    When finished, throw away the opossum and eat the 2x4.:)


    That's sort of how I feel about crow. I'm not one of those squeamish people that turns his nose up at anything that doesn't come out of the grocery store, but I do have a hard time with the thought of easting crow just because the term "eating crow" has always been used in a negative context.

    I would guess cooking it in milk to help with gamines and lots of pepper. I've killed them and made things out of them but never eaten one.

    Crow meat would probably be healthier than “mechanically separated chicken.”

    Especially when it's processed in China.

    With the way the crows around here are always getting into the trash and eating everything, I can't imagine their meat tastes very good.

    Maybe country crow are different, but them city crow seem vile.

    Country crows eat roadkill and nasty carrion. Imo, if someone with the name "mountainman" has never ate one, I won't either. :) The chicken I usually eat is Amish raised, no hormones or steroids, etc.

    Lol. I've eaten three day old steak pizza out of the trash in my tattoo parlor. I was starving.
    I'm not saying I wouldn't eat crow, just that I haven't.
    You're right though, it's a good rule of thumb that if I won't eat it, you shouldn't either. Especially if in a survival situation or in the woods. Lol

    Soak it in milk and cook it with salt, pepper and what other spices you like. They aren't that bad

    My friend Jimmy can make anything taste good! lol And Jimmy can do anything better than you (sarcasm)
    gag - but I would probably try it. maybe soak it in milk overnight... if I had a cow because at that point, I'm already desperate. wait...the cow is already eaten. I think I would eat a squirrel first, because sbreezy is right, crows are garbage eaters... vs. a fresh vegan muncher lmao! (go see what are you drinking...I think this is a result of that) lol!

    If you're serious, Allegra makes a marinade called "game tame" you can buy it in a camouflage bottle at wal mart. Soak the bird in milk overnight, then wash it thoroughly. Rub game tame into the bird and let it sit in it for half an hour. Place on a rotisserie and as its cooking on the spit brush game tame on it every 5 minutes or so, or often enough to keep it wet.

    I don't think we ever ate crow, but my brothers and I used to pop birds when we were in grade school and cook them like this every evening. My uncle taught us how to clean them and soak them and use the Rotisserie. Dad got an old fridge and put it in the garage for our "projects" cuz mom was tired of finding dead animals in her fridge. We didnt care what it was as long as it was big enough to make a decent snack for us we'd kill it skin it and eat it. With the game tame all the birds tasted pretty much the same. Which was actually pretty good. Pigeon and Dove taste better than most. Wood duck is the nectar of the Gods.

    Only thing we didnt shoot was buzzard, skunk and armadillo for obvious reasons. But crow... I just don't remember shooting or eating any. But if we saw one close enough to pop we probably would have.

    Well, for the most part, when I pop a crow with my 22-250, there is not enough left to eat anyway.

    During WWII they canned Crow Meat as a ration. It was later sold to the American Public. By then they had changed the name to "SPAM".;):D
