[NAFEX] Jerry's squirrels & more

Hey All,

I thought squirrel was rather tasty.  Raccoon was quite good as well.  Porcupine was only fair.  Beaver was very nice( a friend into trapping for their furs gave me the carcasses).  I have never had muskrat but it is on my list of things to eat :).

Do they taste anything like rat?

Hi Bob,

Don't know, never tasted one. Never skinned one to see the flesh color. But I'd imagine it would be very similar to squirrel. Squirrel is a member of the rodent family, I believe. We certainly call them tree rats! But if I were hungry enough, for sure I'd eat one. 

I've eaten raccoon, very good. Muskrat is a dark fleshed meat and would like to try it, but wife isn't amicable to the idea and I don't cook. A friend from NC braggs how good ground hog is. I've tasted canned snake, but had a hard time swallowing. Wasn't in the right frame of mind.
