    I'm curious as to what meats others consume and what they would try if they had the opportunity. So please share meat lovers!!!

    Here is the list of animals I eat or have tried: Pig, cow, chicken, frog, squirrel, snake, buffalo, deer, dove, quail, turkey, duck, lamb, fish, elk, pheasant, rabbit, crustacean, turtle.

    I can't think of anything else I've ate right now. Some of these meats I've tried but don't like are duck, snake and crustacean. [​IMG]

    These are the meats I would like to try: Moose, horse or zebra, antelope (I'm getting some antelope from a friend in Wyoming this weekend!)

    Quote:I've had (and sorry for partially plagiarizing but here we go)

    Pig, cow, chicken, frog, squirrel, snake (rattler), buffalo, deer, dove, quail turkey, duck, lamb fish, elk, pheasant, rabbit, crabs, lobster, shrimp, turtle, moose, horse, antelope, alligator, shark, rat, dog, and I think once in Mexico City I had cat.

    Not sure what I want to try other than a bangle tiger, elephant, sting ray.

    Every meat has it's own preferred way of prep. I've had meat made one way I hated, and somebody snuck it to me made up a diff way and loved it... so [​IMG] Keep your mind open.

    Boyd, What did the horse taste like? Someone told me it was real lean. My horses better not break a leg. [​IMG]

    Cow, pig, chicken, lamb, goat, rattlesnake, various fish, (shark, squid, octopus, etc.), quail, pheasant, deer, antelope, elk, moose, robin, bison, ostrich, alligator, turkey, duck and a few bugs while riding my motorcycle. I tried caribou and elk at fancy restaurants and they aren't as good as wild, hunted game. I'd like to try peafowl, goose, javalina, iguana, snails, and cougar. I like veggies too. I think pig (everything is better with bacon), bison and elk are my favs.

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    I had "bear stew" once when I stayed with my aunt in Wisconsin. She had been invited as a guest (and brought me along) to an "Honor the Earth" pow wow.

    It was the most awesome experience of my life (the pow wow, not the bear stew). This wasn't open to the public and my aunt had been invited to thank her for work she had done for them (the Ojibwe tribe). It was dark. There was fire. There was music. There was dancing. It went to well after midnight. It was fantastic - and I've never seen anything like it before or since.

    And then there was the bear stew. Did NOT like it at all. Very chewy and quite game-y. Guess I should have had the bear burger.

    I have eaten:
    Cow, pig, chicken (including heart and sauteed testicles), lamb, frog, goat, rattlesnake, various fish (shark, squid, halibut, mahi mahi, cod, trout, bass, tuna, salmon, eel, etc.), crustaceans/shellfish (lobster, shrimp, crawdads, crab, clams, mussels, scallops, etc), quail, pheasant, deer, elk, buffalo, ostrich, turkey, duck, guinea hen, caviar (totally counts...and it is not good).

    Possibly moose...don't remember for certain.

    Would like to try:
    alligator, goose, rabbit, bear (as long as it isn't one of the endangered ones), ...and pretty much anything else that isn't too taboo to eat (not too eager to eat a dog, cat, panda, etc).
