    Le Loup, that law about killing ROO is so damned absurd, kill it and through it on the gut pile. most places that would constitute a crime. hope those people who made the law never get in a starving situation and all that there is to eat is ROO!, then, I guess that they will all starve to death and die!.

    We used to get King Browns in the house all the time when we were in the Territory Fleener, one time when I went to put my son in his cot there was a brown snake coiled in the cot! When my eldest son was about 3 years of age, he wandered into my workshop, I was not there & had left the door open. This workshop was part of the house. As I returned I saw my son coming out of the workshop, when I went inside, there was a dead King Brown on the floor, its head crushed & close by was a heavy grinding stone that I kept on my bench.

    I like living in a place where I dont have to worry about venomous snakes. We have tornadoes, and when people that are not used to them are here when we have them it is very unnerving to them, and they wonder why we are so calm.

    Around here, Rattlesnakes are very rare (more common in the eastern part of the state). The most dangerous creatures do include Black Bears, Grizzly Bears, Mountain Lions and angry Squirrels. In my 30 or so years or roaming the woods, I've seen a Black Bear twice, a glimpse of a Mountain Lion and no Grizzlies. The Squirrels are the most vicious...

    IN AZ we have rattlers nearly everywhere, seen several only killed one as it was basically in our camp. No griz but I have seen several black bears (they were all terrified of people except 3 (ma and two cubs) by a lake camp ground (been too used to trash cans) and one cub at 100 yds that stood up and studied me. Seen a few lions. I AM GLAD THERE ARE NO GRIZZLY HERE. I like to hunt but I would HATE to be hunted. I am way more wary of my fellow mankind out there than any nature, some folks are just plain BAD, have one experience that could went bad. Had a fellow BP hunter stop, pee on my truck and steal my truck hitch while I watched in my binos. REAL hard not to shoot thru his back glass but he had passengers (I was 300 yds off and siting water in a ground blind). I Admit I did cruise the area lookin for his camp (would have recognized the truck), I would have certainly burned everything he had while he was out road hunting!!

    I had ‘roo when in Perth in the 1970s I was in the navy and we put in to Fremantle. Had it at a restaurant I remember thinking it was pretty pricey but I don’t now remember the cost. To me it tasted of goat or mutton.
    Maybe there is a poultry like flavor to rattle snake I would say more quail then chicken.

    No joking here, but I'm a little surprised roo doesn't taste like possum. I figured a marsupial is a marsupial. But what do I know?

    Well, they might taste like possum. I have never tried the little "grinners" so cant compare them. I also have interest in trying them either.

    I think I'll take a pass, myself. According to all the folk songs I know, possum is fat and greasy and sounds rather unpleasant.

    That is a very simple answer, chicken tastes like every thing else.

    From literature, Dodos were inedible due to their flavor or oily character (I forget which). On the other hand, people have eaten Mammoth that was frozen in the permafrost and said it was tasty.

    It was a joke, but wasn’t dodos hunted to extinction ( maybe extinction, there has been some reported sightings of them) because they were so easy to catch? I had understood European seaman had wiped them out

    They were killed for sport not flavor and have been extinct for about 300 years - the men killed them by the dozens because they were flightless, hadn't developed a fear of man and some bored people kill things for fun.

    The Dutch record that the meat could be salted and two would serve for a meal. They even wrote a poem about killing them and sparring parrots. They were related to doves and pidgins. That doesn’t mean anything as far as flavor was concerned and the Dutch said that some people found it to tough and oily and preferred parrot.
    Taste might be a bit effected by six months of ‘salt junk’ and ships bread.

    I think you are mistaking Dodo (a rather innocuous creature) for Dolt/Imbecile/Moron/Idiot (far more dangerous to others)...:eek:
