I asked myself this Question on a boat-trip.
Do you know the Answer?
I have never heard of the quiver fly, does it have other names, & where is it found?
It is located in Europe.
Köcherfliegenlarve in German.
It is common in Europe.
Im from Austria by the way.
Is The Quiver-fly Larva Eatable?
I will never find out.
Ain't gonna eat no bugs especially bugs that look like maggots.
I can shoot little critters with an air gun or .22 rifle, even small birds if
Doves are great eating but small, takes 6 for one person, at least
6 of them.
Our quail and pheasants are just about extinct.
They eat road salt and peck fertilizer which makes the egg shells soft and they
A wild pheasant and quail is a rare sight.
I'd not shoot any.
Turkey are making a come back but so is the fox and coyote.
I will shoot fox, coyotes, and feral dogs.

People dump unwanted cats and dogs.
I'll shoot every cat I see running wild.
And I have.
Yuck. why would someone eat that thing with the thousands of meat products available?
Don't know and don't want to try it, unless there were no sources of protein available at all, I wouldn't go so far to eat fly larva which is basically the same as maggots. I'd rather eat earthworms or grasshoppers than try to shove down one of these things for sustenance. I'd even go so far to go vegetarian for a bit if there was no other sources of protein but if I had to, I would find a way to mix them in with another food source or cook them with other ingredients and by then, their original taste will be dulled down.
I can only imagine a gamey and bitter taste that these larva may have when consumed...
