Once again, our resident idiot troll proves he knows nothing about that which he posts.

On the other thread, he claimed elephant meat was not edible.

BZZZT!

WRONG!

From Wikipedia:

(emphasis mine)

"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."

Whale meat is excellent, too. As is mountain lion. I had both for the first time this year, and would gladly take more. If I had access to elephant meat, I'd be first in line for it.

I hope a few anti-hunters have their heads explode over the thought of our eating elephant, mountain lion, whale, and a few other species. If I get a chance to have a wolf steak, or make it into chili, you can bet I'll do that, too.

Lynx sausage is good too.

Every once in a while Hardee's will substitute the patty sausage with lynx. Yummy!

When a hunter kills an elephant, the local villagers show up en masse to cut it up and then use the meat to feed themselves and their families.

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

The picture after this was a wet spot on the ground. Bones were gone. Boiled broken open or ground into meal.

It's fairly simple. The Zulu word for wildlife, literally translated, is "to eat."

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've yet to eat any wild game that wasn't delicious.

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.

i brought two caribou home from a hunt and they were the best red meat i have ever eaten.

I've killed a couple a large mulie bucks during the rut that my wife and I couldn't eat. It certainly took away from the satisfaction of harvesting them.

NvaGvUp, I have eaten caribou several times and liked it. I am told that when they are rutting the bulls drink a lot of cow pee and that makes them inedible at that time. The meat I had must not have been rutting. A friend of mine killed a bull elk and a bear and had time left before the bush plane picked him up. He said the guide handed him a fishing rod with a red devil spoon and told him to catch some pike. He said he has never had such great fishing and caught pike one after the other. He said the guide filleted them, dipped them in batter and deep fried them My buddy said they are absolutely delicious. BTW, my buddy had one of those black bags that you hang up in the sun to get a nice warm shower. The guide liked it so much my buddy gave it to him. That buddy of mine and I bow hunted several years in Illinois and had no problem killing our deer, which we donated to feed the hungry.

Imagine the size of elephant back straps!

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.

Entire herds that were raiding villagers crops have been poisoned by the village just to stop the crop damage. Entire herds. Poisoned because the authorities would not allow controlled hunting, so they took matters into their own hand. With a herd managed by hunting this would have been a boon to the village.... not a detriment they were left to deal with on their own.

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.

Shuteye,

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!

24-Nov-17
Yep, those showers do work, thank God!

I think caribou is the best venison of all.
