fried groundhog


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


clean and soak the hawg in salt water over night 1-2 tbls of salt (if you want rid of some of the wild taste)
boil for about an hour or till meat seperates from the bone.
roll seperated peices in flour, salt , pepper. (salt and pepper to taste.)1tsp salt 1/2 pepper
we always fried in lard( just enough to keep it from sticking)
add 1/2 cup onion 1/4 cup green pepper about a tbls minced parsley add hawg and fry till its good and brown this is for a medium sized ground hog about 8lbs on its legs.
sorry about all the abouts but this is how my aunt done it. i don't even think she had measuring cups.

For "medium size" I'm suspecting you mean young of the year. Also there is some "brown fat" in the front armpits that should be removed to avoid the "wild" taste. I understand this "brown fat" plays a role in their hibernation.

the younger the better but i have a friends mother that fries the fat and makes something like pork rinds. in my opinion the and all fat should be removed or the most of it, about impossible to get it all.

Thanks Jack. I was looking for a recipe for chucks. I thought they should be a tasty critter since they are vegetarians.

Kept reading all through and waited for the oak plank to be roasted on - throw the chuck away and eat the plank - but, never happened!

My dad got a coon with his Redhawk last weekend, Ken - wish I would have known you were interested in such culinary delights! I would have had it flash-frozen and overnighted to you (along with an appropriate sized oak plank)

I thought the same kdub, and also thought that anything bigger than 22 mag would be a bad plan for these dishes.

They should be good eating, depending upon time of year shot. The work to get a meal...probably not much different than filleting perch!

In Colorado, lion meat must be saved for human consumption under the waste of meat rules, but I don't know if they can be trained to use a litter box.

Last lion taken was given to the ranch vaquaros after skinning. They made all kinds of Mexican dishes out of it and good for them. All I could think of while skinning was a big ol' tom cat! Ugh!

How long do you cook you Chuck?

I have a bunch of Woodchucks out back.

Maybe Ill roast a few on the Grill to feed my dog.

Of course I'll bring some Wood Chuck Jerky into work to share with the guys in the shop.

I recall that in one of his books Jack O'Connor, who had hunted most everywhere and tried most everything, commented that loin of mountain lion was the second best game meat he had ever eaten anywhere. He said his favorite was young of the year mountain sheep.
