Slice them thin, dip them in egg, roll them in seasoned breadcrumbs and fry in butter until golden brown. Serve with a nice red wine. Yummy!

I'm pretty sure the elk do it the same way we do. Before a big date they wash all the greebilies out of their sack hair with some shampoo & conditioner. Then they trim everything up nice and neat, apply some moisturizing lotion and finally a little baby powder and it's off to the wallow to troll for cows.

Ok ill tell :) I have done this a few times. Just remove them from the sack and slice thin WASH them and toss them in some flour and garlic powder and pan fry dont over cook. They are good

Now thats funny ! Ain't there enough other meat on an elk to eat? In montana they are rocky mountain oysters but they are taken from young calves not bulls ! To each his own

Are you seriously going to eat elk balls? Why waste what's between if you're gonna eat the other you may as well go for the slim jim as well. YUCK!


By: ORARCHER

Ya there is enough meat on a elk but... One of the traditions has always been at camp eat the heart liver and the Balls. Call me wierd but even at 19yrs old when I killed my first buck with a bow it was just a "dare" but then it was just skewered on a stick little salt and pepper and open camp fire. They are alot better now:)

JUSTHUNT1-Your comments have made it quite clear that you will never have a show on the Food Network:)

I would recommend harvesting the critter first and foremost. Otherwise, chasing them down with a castration knife could be quit a chore.

As long as you use a fixed blade ball cutter and not a mechanical one you can prepare them however you like.


By: TxTrapper
Posted: 11-Aug-08

O.K. Believe me or not!! When we would brand and cut calves we would pull'em out and just throw them in the coals and when they would split open we would let them set for just a little while longer and pick'em out of the coals and cut them long ways and eat them on the spot. We would literaly fight for them. Of course we would be out all day and thems were some gooood eat'in. Allen

Take them out of the sack. Strip them out of the coverings. Dip them in milk (so you can say yea thats milk) lightly bread them in your favorite breading. I like Shore Lunch. (can be found at Sportsman's Werehouse)Fry them up in butter and chow down. Like said above don't over cook them. To me they taste like a cross of chicken and shrimp. Very tasty best part of the whole animal.

Have fed breaded,BBQ etc "oysters" [lamb and beef] to folks who were game enough to try them. Asked the secret how they were not as revolting as they sounded was "I boiled the p@%s out of them first"! The difference between offal and awful is the preparation and execution!


By: TD
Posted: 11-Aug-08

What Wapitik said. Calves and lambs, yes. Never heard of eating bull balls. But a person can eat most anything with the right sauce on it. Or hungry enough.


By: gobbler
Posted: 11-Aug-08

Thanks Guys, I had them in wyoming before, but never knew how they were fixed. I have to admit I like busta's way, and I was going to wait till it was dead first.

In montana you have to leave them attached to the meat as proof of sex. I use to leave a condom attached or a video tape.

For those of you that have had them, I guess that'd make ya a swallower not spitter!! Cant believe you guys are actually trying to describe the taste and texture of having balls in your mouth. This all reminds me of the joke about waking up in hunt camp with vaseline in your crack, WOULD YOU TELL ANYONE????

Effin' funny. Sounds like you've been there...........

The whole time reading this post all could think of was "banjo music". If you want to go full on redneck why don't you try some sourthern chitlin's and gravey and some sterno to wash it down with. For me, I will have to pass. And Yes I don't want to "know" what I am missing and neither does the Bull. (GRIN)

BTW, is a "greeblie" something like a dingleberry?? Or is that term reserved ONLY for hitchikers on the sack?

"One of the traditions has always been at camp eat the heart liver and the Balls"

Ok, maybe over at Camp Grabass, but not where I hunt!

Holy crap fellas, do you boil the milk sack and make oatmeal if you kill a cow?

Nuts and guts stay in the woods!

The shavin' part is a little over the top! You actually put that much effort into it? How about just taking a shower?

In africa, the first part of any animal taken, that was taken by the natives was the intestines. They would walk by the backstraps to get at the small intestines.


By: NV Archer
Posted: 11-Aug-08

I asked a friend about his joke about taking advantage of cows after he stuck em with an arrow. I asked if it was pink in that area, and he told me it is more like greenish grey. After I killed a cow last year he unexpectidly cut this area off and held it up for me to see. I think if you wrapped this around a coke can and let it age, like putting a tennis ball in the sack to make a powder sachel, you would make a nice bracelet. and wear it while eating nuts. That would kinda complete the circle.

Im with mnarcher , guts and nuts stay in the woods

I believe the laws state all "ebible parts" are to be utilized or else you could be in "vilation uh da law". Start eatin boys. Don't want to be labled a poacher. (Actually they may be good poached).


By: jordanatwork

whoa Kyle.....TMI

LOL

Wonder how this works in with the wanton waste regs.....I'd hate to be an offender but I also prefer to keep them attached as proof of sex vs. gulping down some bull's "junk".

Camp Grabass.....LMAO at Michael!!!! Maybe we need a homophobes anonymous chapter on bowsite.....LOLOLOLOL.....I'll be chapter sargeant at arms.....

Point of Order....Point of Order... I am Envoking Man Law 33. No man shall discuss the consumption of animal testicles particularly those of commonly known as BIG GAME!

Equally as important as Man Law 30. Absoluteley no talking in the Men's room. Unless it is sarcastic commentary on farts, laughing, or utterances about "how deep" the water is.

Can I get a Second on this?

What happened to slipping one into your buddies pillowcase or sleeping bag? Does THAT violate any man laws??

Shaving the junk should be rule #34. The law should read; No man shall intentionally remove body hair below the confluence of a standard, white, fruit of the loom crew neck type t shirt and his chest and/or back hair. Hair visible above the confluence is acceptable, no, preferable, as it proves chest and/or back hair has not been tampered with. Mechanical or chemical removal of hair within areas normally covered by briefs or boxers shall be cause for banishment from all man centered activities. An exception shall be allowed for excess hair removal from the "butt crack" of disgustingly hairy men, as it may post a health hazard to those around him. (hangers, greeblies, dingles and all that). Removal of said hair MUST be performed by his wife or FEMALE signifigant other! Furthermore, should a man that eats testicles also be found to have shaved his nether regions, he shall be banished fortwith and subjected to endless harassment and mental anguish inflicted by his peers. A red "M", for "Mary" will be emblazoned on his forehead with a permanent marker while he sleeps.

Ki-Ke, you would be violating Man Law 40 if you did not do as you describe. The placement of such item or items is completely acceptable in pillow cases, placed on driver side windshields of rigs, etc. Recipient of said items must be classified as "hunting" partner or "brother" who no longer hunts.

You have a Second on Man Law 34!

Good Luck!

Butterfly the "oyster" to show the meaty, soft tissue. This is what you want. cut all skin outer tissue away. Soak in salt water for 3-4 hours. Then fry with eggs and flour like a morel mushroom. Salt, pepper and a dash of tobasco.

Hell if you guys like nuts so much, you can always make the rounds to the local vets, you can have them collect them for you I'll bet you can get quite a smorgasbord.

Doctor Evil "I can assure you nothing is more breath taking than a freshly shorn scrotum" This is why man law #34 was written. Guys don't wear nail polish or makeup so they shouldn't trim the bushes. Now ladies on the other hand.............AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

A local volunteer fire departement in my neck of the woods use to have a Rocky MTN oyster festival every year as a fundraiser. It was also called the testical festival. They fried them up in like 32 different flavors..teriyaki, bbq, garlic, on and on...It was better than Baskins and Robbins. They go great with beer but what doesn't. You would be surprised at the number of people who went to the festival. Riddle

Anyone here had turkey fries? An employee club I belonged to at one time used to serve them at one of their fishing tournaments. Got them from a place up in Fredericksburg, Texas. Man they went fast. As noted dang good with beer. Also had them at a game dinner in San Antonio. Charlie - SA

Turkey fries?


By: fuzzy
Posted: 14-Aug-08

Seriously I've eaten hog, calf, bull, deer testicles, don't see why elk would be a problem, all you guys who are squeamish probably don't eat heart, kidney, liver , tongue, or tripe either, right?

I'm with you Mul Pwr......I've tried lots of things....once. I like a little gastronomical adventure. But having had a chitty experience with chitlins one martin luther king day.....I won't be back for 2nds on that one. Some things just taste like what they do....no matter how you fix 'em.

By: thesquid

Dice them - dip them in bread crumbs - dip in beaten egg - dip again in bread crumbs {OH, cracker crumbe work the same} - now get your oil heated up to 370 and fry until they are a beautiful golden color. Pack them in air tight sacks and freeze. Next bear hunt use them for bait.

fuzzy, deer heart is great fried in onions. No problem there. As I think about it, I just don't eat organs, period. I'll stick to muscle tissue.

Chip got it right on except you should put them in freezer for a short time and then peel off the outside membrane. Same as rocky mt. oysters.
