On the other thread, he claimed elephant meat was not edible.
"Elephant meat refers to the flesh and other edible parts of elephants. It is consumed primarily in African nations as a delicacy, but is also eaten during times of hardship such as drought and war. The consumption of elephant meat has likely been a source of food for both humans and animals during the entire time of their coexistence."
Every once in a while Hardee's will substitute the patty sausage with lynx. Yummy!
The economic impact to the local population of a hunter taking an elephant is enormous.
OTOH, when a poacher kills an elephant, he cuts off the tusks as fast as he can and leaves the meat to rot.
What this all means is that the local populace has a big incentive to stop poaching
If elephants are protected, they are an economic hardship to a poor villager trying to feed his family, eating the crops he grows to feed them. A poacher killing the elephant actually benefits him since that reduces one source of damage to his food source.
However, if wealthy foreigners may hunt the elephants, an economic incentive comes from the money for the hunt, and the meat distributed to the villagers. Poaching the elephant and letting the meat rot harms the villager, who then loses out on the bounty when an elephant is killed.
This is why elephant numbers in places that ban hunting drop, and go up where hunting is permitted.
This is another example of how people will act in their self interest. Banning elephant hunting harms the villagers, the elephants, and the people who want to hunt them.
I have had caribou in a restaurant 30 years ago and it was fantastic. However, I've been told by several people who would know, that a bull caribou in the rut is not only inedible, it smells so bad simply cleaning it is a very unpleasant experience.
The caribou hunts are usually before the rut except for woodland caribou. I took a Barren ground small bull when I went and it was fantastic. If I have any doubts on meat, say from a large wild boar or a rutted up big buck I make sausage and jerky from the meat except the back straps from the bucks.
Now just go scamper away nervously you lying anti-hunter. Once again proven clueless. Yet seem want to keep popping back up in your doggy punch bowl to wallow in your displays of ignorance.... or worse yet, deceit.
Those solar showers work as advertised. I've got one, but until I used it on an elk hunt a number of years ago, was skeptical it would work as advertised.
Boy, was I wrong. It worked great!
I think caribou is the best venison of all.
