Default Something happened the night before last

We decided to head into town for lunch. My neighbor asked me to keep an ear out for porcupines in the back wood pile.

I got mamma. She was big! Probably 20#s.

Porcupine, it’s what’s for dinner.

Porcupines are like emergency food in a lot of Canada’s forests. They are slow moving and easy to kill with a club. So you should not kill them because unless the damn things are eating your house (They love eating plywood) they are mostly harmless.
OK, about the meat. There is a reason they are called porcupine. It is a poor translation of the French for “little spiny pig up a tree.”
The meat is much like pork, sweet, succulent, rich. It can be a bit fatty at times and if the porkies are eating pine instead of hemlock or poplar there might be a bit of pine taste (like a hint of turpentine) so don’t eat the ones that are eating pine trees.

Why wouldn't you be able to eat it? You can eat most of the little fury animals. Usually most little animals are dry though, not much fat. Like shtrns posted, porcupines, and other slower moving animals get a good amount of fat. I hear skunk can be great if you slaughter it carefully.


The only animals I would prefer not to eat are racoons, opossums, and skunks. Racoons and opossums eat the most disgusting things there are so they're more likely to be real dirty. Just like you wouldn't like to eat porcupines that are eating pine wood, I can assure you from personal experience that you won't want to eat squirrels that live near black walnut trees. Also avoid the pregnant animals.

I tried it and black bear years ago. I think I was sixteen. The bear was greasy. Beaver is tasty though.

as with many things..location location location....animals out in the wild eat mostly fresh vegetation and wild fruits and berries and taste rather well, compared to the urban animals that eat everyones trash and garbage..
and yes what they eat in the wild can taint the meat, as you are what you eat...but most of the time if tasty food is around they will eat that over bad tasting foods...
spring is the worse time to eat any wild animals as the winter limited their food supply, unless they live in areas that dont have reduced food in winter..
