Find this kind of survey anywhere else.....

Okay, the post below got a few comments on dog meat and it got me to thinking:
What kind of unusual meats have you eaten?
Myself, I've eaten horse, possum, coon, rattler (tastes like a fucking snake, not chicken), snails, frog legs, eel, goat eyeballs, a sparrow I shot off the back fence when I was 8 and Dad made me clean and eat it, a bobcat steak that was absolutely fucking wonderful and last but not least, a big fucking cockroach on a bet once when I was drunk.
That's aside from your everyday fish & game that friends turn me on to.
Some of that shit may be normal to you in your neck of the woods but I can't count how many people damned near gag when you mention eating snails or a nice mess of legs.
Commet if you would, please and let us know what kind of shit you've gagged down, drunk or otherwise.

Wire cutter like you and most of your readers i spent time in the Military, I retired from it to give you an idea of how long i was in, and to list the things i have eaten when i went "Native" would be long and disturbing to many. But there are a couple I do not mind talking about: Cat, not bad but chewy, kinda like beef flavored chewing gum. Dod, WOW some of the best stew I have ever had learned it was dog after I ate it. Crow, yep ate that too in Korea, slugs and grasshoopers too. Philipines,, well now that was interesting and I will not list it. Thing is no matter where ya go or where ya are, there is what I call Brave Food, and then there is delicacies . Enjoy!

Shit, in survival school for three weeks we/I ate tree bark, grubs, most bugs, flowers, leather, lizards, and a porky pine. [Do not eat a a porky pine].
On the third week I woulda killed, dressed, and ate my buddy.
And we both thought about it.

There was this girl once, up in Virginia... wait, what was the question? Meat? Gotta say elk was some of the best meat I've EVER had! And, seriously, there's not a meat you can't make gravy from... sorry YOLO but squirrel makes some awesome gravy!!!

RAT roasted over a fire and it was good. Not any old rat but one from a rice field and they are pretty clean not no garbage eaten alley rat. Fried scorpians, meal worms, cockroaches, and a couple of bugs don't know what they are. All the bugs are sold by street vendors here.Brains, stomachs, ofal of all kinds. Jellied BLOOD looks like cranberry sauce not too bad eaten. All normal family fare over here.

Other than the usual game available in the UK, I've only eaten "odd" meats while overseas.

France : frogs legs - good eating!

Nigeria : Dog, snake, & "bush meat"; I was advised not to ask just what, exactly, "bush meat " was for some reason...... tasted just fine!

Nearly forgot, horse as steak (not very good), casseroled with red wine (more please!) and in a spicy sausage (excellent). Eaten with relish in both France & Italy.

Nothing too exotic,had monkey on-a-stick in Phillipines, eel and octopus in Japan, sushi,sashimi and squid of course. Mountain oysters and Bison are good. Alligator, crawfish and boudin are great here in La. Almost left out baked coon with sweet potatoes,frog legs and rattlesnake.
