"We have tequilla...It's like beer"
I should've been more clear....my comment was more in regards to the "sporting" aspect of it, as I don't see much sport about coon hunting either, which is why I don't do it.
The worst is when some jackass poacher spotlights you and starts shooting.
You'll find me with a bow up in a tree, makes it a little more of a sport.
Most of the folks I know that trophy hunt still utilize the kill as meat. Many of the African exotics are absolutely fabulous eating. Much better than our deer and as good or better than pure grass fed buffalo, which is beyond good.

This! Just deplorable. People like that guy will end up on Darwin awards one day.
Well that didn't take long. Check out # 1 item Trending Now on front page of Yahoo!.
I grew up coon hunting! It wasn't about killing the coon! It was about listening to the mountain music. Yep, that's right. If you haven't heard the sound of the red bone hounds echoing through the forest at night, you haven't heard beautiful yet! And it was a great adventure, pure, and full of fresh air, stars, the moon, and getting great exercise.
And, treeing the coon, that was great. Jumping him out, and watching the coon and the hounds fight, that was exciting. Most of the time the coon got away, having whipped the whole pack, left them with split ears, before he left.
And the coon wasn't wasted, if he was taken. Nope, had friends that were very poor, and they begged to get them to eat for a nice Sunday dinner. Quite delicious to say the least when properly prepared. I ate it on severaal occasions.
Now, I hunt mostly my whole life with bow and arrow, including a recent safari to Africa, where I took several animals in the antelope family. A couple were real trophies, including a giant Kudu, a big Impala, and a huge Wildebeast bull. Yep, brought them back as trophies too, We were privileged to eat some of the meat while there, and it was awesome tasting. Some of the best I have ever eaten. Keep in mind, we weren't allowed to bring the meat back to the US, and it was given to the families in the area who were extremely thankful to fill their deep freeze with all that delicious meat.
I always eat what I kill, if I can. Now, I do kill wild hogs that aren't fit to eat on occasion, but they are tearing down fences, digging giant holes, and killing our fawn population on the South Texas ranch. I will eat the young ones, but never an old boar, as they are too tough to eat.
Killing animals is part of the history of survival of the world and this nation. It should always be humane, and the meat should never be wasted. It is the best protein one can get for his family, very lean, and delicious. Much better and healthier than the slaughter of domestic animals, fattened with the aide of hormones and most folks pig out on them without blinking an eye.
Seriously... Have fun dealing with this.
Possum is greasy
I could see this thread derail into inspiration for future tailgates.
Some of the old maintain man books that I have read (Rockies) say cougar is the best meat. Bear and the by products were important,
"Is it fattening?"
I love cougar's...
But seriously, I've got a buddy who shot a mountain lion a few years back and he had the damn thing quartered up into steaks and what not. Said it was some of the best meat he's ever had.
I'm sure that hogs and skunks play some role in the biosphere - but I sure can't figure out what that might be. I've got no qualms whatsoever with shooting them on site.
I too own lots of guns and enjoy hunting. Just not the kind shown on that video. I prefer hunting on foot or maybe from a jeep.
I see what you did there.
