Coyotes, Possums and Crows

After my last rant,  I thought we might lighten it up just a bit.  After all, it IS Sunday!  So here are a few recipes I thought  you might enjoy.

□   50 lb. potatoes, diced
□   Salt & pepper to taste
Simmer coyote in broth until tender. This takes about 1 week. Season to taste. Add vegetables in last hour of cooking. Serves 250 people. If unexpected guests arrive. 1 rabbit may be added, but do this only in an emergency, as most people do not like to find a hare in their stew.

□   Crow breasts
□   Sauerkraut
□   Bacon strips
□   Onion
Remove crow breasts. Soak overnight in salt water. Parboil for 1/2 hour. Brown in butter. Place on a bed of 1 1/2 inches of sauerkraut in a casserole. Cover each breast with bacon strips. Cover with slice of onions and more sauerkraut. Pour sauerkraut juice over the whole thing. Bake for 2 hours at 350 degrees. If it still tastes like crow, you did something wrong, serve to obnoxious neighbors.


  1. Hehehe, thanks for the chuckles this morning, Sci.



  3. When I was a lad of ten living in Biloxi, my friend and I used to smoke the possums out of brush piles and catch them to sell to our neighbors living along the railroad right of way.
    Poor as they were they always had a dollar for a fresh possum. I think it was stewed.

  4. I knew thngs were tough Sci but wtf. lol fk

  5. In australia we have Cockatoo stew: first catch a cockatoo (good luck)... place 1 cockatoo, 1 pound chopped vegetables, 1 stone and enough broth to cover in a billy (a tin pot), boil over open fire. When the stone is soft, throw out the cockatoo and eat the stone.

  6. Crow is like a greesy chicken. Boiled might be good. Possum I hear is good! Nerver thought of a coyotes but hey is things get ruff will try it once.
