One of my favourite meals when we used to pig hunt was " neds corner stew ", which was essentially a perpetual stew into which we threw whatever we caught or shot or had left over for the 4 days we were there over Easter long weekend.
My wife's family had a tradition for multi day social events. They called it "nail soup". It was made by putting a large pot of water on to boil and then tossing in a nail. From then on participants added their own ideas on what should be in it.

Kippered herring and summer sausage over a sunflower heater while deer hunting. Special note,! Cooking herring in a deer stand produces lots of smoke,weird looks from passing hunters and lots of curious deer

In my neck of the woods it is a heater that screws on top of a 20 lb propane bottle

When I was a younger fellow my bigger brother would try and cook possums, muskrat, and crows. One time a snapping turtle I caught while catfishing. The possum was pretty good, he cooked it like a pot roast. I don't remember the muskrat. The crow was like sisal rope, completely inedible. The turtle was disgusting, but we were 14 and 15 years old. Coming home one night he witnessed a barred owl getting hit by a car right in front of him. He brought him home and cooked him up and I was the only one to try it. I had a leg, the talons still on it. I remember that it wasn't too bad! We were a strange family! The possum and muskrat came from my trapline. I don't know if I would eat these things today!!

Never had beaver. We sure cooked up some woodchuck. It was a long time ago. I used to hunt them with my old JC Higgins single shot .22. They could be tough to kill ! I was a pretty good shot, but sometimes those old boys could absorb two, three shots before they stopped moving. We cooked them a few times, so they must've been fairly tasty!
