    Seems only fair to eat our pests after they eat our chickens.

    Any good raccoon recipes? Can you even eat coyote or bobcat? Snakes?

    I won't even ask about eating Hawk, as I am sure that is illegal!!

    I've never personally eaten raccoon, 'yote or bobcat, but I've eaten rattle snakes! Whenever we get a 'yote in our yard (and we're able to shoot it in time) we hang that SOB up on the fence to ward off any others, seems to work :)
