    If you are someone that prides themselves on how good of a hunter you are, what is the most exotic prey that you have ever hunted? Did you eat it after and would you recommend it as a good food source?

    I only hunt when we NEED meat to eat, I think that shooting any animal for any other reason than a need for food or in defence is totally disgusting behavour.

    As the tiger had killed two kids and a old lady from the vill we were working from we felt it was best to try as it could smell and advoid traps we hunted it high into the mountains and it appeared once on a ridge then went into a valley far from vill we returned to vill and worked from it for 5 more months till we relocated to a more secure base

    I can't think of anything "exotic" I've hunted; deer, grouse, duck, turkey, geese, etc. are pretty common around here. I've dispatched various pests too, but they were particularly unusual either; rattlesnakes, nutria, coyotes, etc. The nutria is an invasive species that cause a lot of issues.

    MMM Tiger steaks. No, I'm kidding but was it any good? Most of the meat that we eat today is from the flesh of animals that are either corn fed or grass fed cattle. How did the meat of a predator differ?

    I hunted a bear once! But not for meat or trophy, I was just trying to get the bear's picture. Black bears were considered a protected species in the past, I think. All I got out of the 'hunt' was a great hiking experience, but no cool pictures.

    I haven't joined a hunting expedition yet but maybe I can contribute my experience in one rural farm where we hunted edible frogs in the rice field. It was scary at first because frog is scary to me but as the hunt went on, oh, it was lots of fun. But honestly, I was deliberately trying NOT to catch a frog, hahahaaah. And the frogs that we caught landed on the kitchen table and later cooked and served as part of the lunch. The best meat was frog's legs that were marinated in gin (the liquor) for 30 minutes before being deep fried. It goes best with beer.

    I've never eaten frog! I can't say that I've ever wanted to try it, but I've heard it does actually taste like chicken. Is that true?

    I'm really curious about the ones you have tried - what were the best/worst in terms of taste?

    I've heard kangaroo is very lean and can be hard to cook right...would love to hear your experiences.
