And endangered species?

Hey guys since it is my first night back offically after dispatch school I thought I would start the stupic question of the week thread.

The question is of course have you ever consumed the flesh of an endangered species.

Well if you go over to the thread I started about attending dispatch school in rural Alaska in my case you now know the answer is yes. I had the chance to try the blubber of a Bowhead whale.....AKA Muktuk.

Wasn't bad, tasted like salmon roe.

Anybody else, have you ever eaten an endangered species?

Bear, Beaver, Goose, Caribou, Moose, Musk-Ox . . . . etc. The usual Alaskan fare of the woodlands.  Smile

No endangered anything, as far as I know. . . .

Don't think so...

...Gemsbok Oryx is about the closest I've ever come to that.



Can you really think of an endangered species that'd be all that tasty though?

The Whale reminded my of Salmon Roe, which surprised me.

Actually you pop it kind of like Tequila. You put salt on the web of skin between your thumb and forefinger. Pop the muktuk in your mouth with your other hand and then suck the salt on the first hand.

I've eaten many stereotypical plains animals...

Rattlesnake - tastes like chicken.
Buffalo - unbelieveable, way better than beef.
Antelope - kind of gamey, like deer but tougher.

And some others too...

Alligator - like greasy chicken.
Pheasant - awesome...and it was easy to catch too - just stood there and let me bash its head with a rock!  vomit 

And yes, I've eaten prairie oysters too - they are OK (taste like a steak), but kind of chewy

Hell, I eat beef, chicken, duck, pork, halibut, salmon, cod, trout, etc. also.

What is "traditional" to you, is NOT "traditional" others. Let's expand your mind a little.

This is Alaska, we do things up here like hunt and fish . . . it's called Subsistence . . . traditional Alaskan lifestyle still practiced by most people here, especially Alaskan Natives. Just like natives of South Pacific Islands, traditionally, fish is a large part of their diet.

The animals I list are all abundant in Alaska, and are traditional Alaskan foods. I don't prefer bear meat, usually quite tough, but tasty nonetheless. My favorite is a nice Caribou roast. Moose runs a close second. Beaver is gamey and greasy and takes a bit of getting used to. Walrus isn't bad, tastes like "fish"  wink .

Keep in mind that Alaskan natives waste very little, almost none of the animal taken. The meat is eaten, the hide is used to make clothing - best set of gloves I own are hand made Moose hide. Want something water resistant - use Seal Skin.

If you'd like more info, let me know - be glad to forward you some links.

In some areas, bear, beaver, caribou, moose, musk ox, seal, and whale, is "traditional meat". The climate in those areas is not suited for raising cattle, poultry, and other livestock. They have to go hunting to get their meat, and in regards to fish, not everyone has ready access to a lake or river. Plus in a place like Alaska, the water is frozen pretty thick, and in the time it would take to cut a hole in the ice, they could have already shot or captured a land animal. In many cases, the animal serves multiple uses. The fur or skin is used for clothing, and the fat of some of the animals is used for various purposes. Goose is a "traditional meat"; people have been eating goose for centuries. Goose is very similar to duck. Would you consider deer/venison to not be a "traditional meat"? Early Americans lived off of deer, and today is still a popular wild game animal that is shot for its' meat.

I could NEVER eat turtle or whale though. I love these creatures too much. Also nothing I knew was an endangered creature. That's just wrong.
Buffalo? Is that endangered? Better than steak? How do you get buffalo steaks?

No, in fact it is being commercially farmed in the US now. The meat is considered healthier then beef.

The Bison I had, my dad shot circa 1980...He shot a young one, maybe a two year old, so the meat was nice and tender.

As far as the whale, the iniupiat have a specific exemption to traditionally hunt several animal species, including Bowhead Whales, seals and walrus. There are now however several limits on the number of "Strikes" a village can have a year. A strike is when you get a whale harpooned....doesn't mean it won't get away.

Actually in the past few years whales have been caught that have had stone harpoon points embeded in the blubber, indicating that they may live a lot longer then we previously thought, since those points haven't been used since maybe the 1860's.

We can get Buffalo at our local Grocer - Safeway Grocery that is. It's commercially raised. And you get a buffalo steak the same way you get a beef steak . . . even the cuts are the same. Excellent meat.

Wow! Now that's truly interesting stuff! Amazing!

I am going to try and track down some buffalo here in Tampa! Cook it up and give it to my husband without telling him. See if he notices  mischievous 
What about ostrich? I have seen that in the local grocery store. Anybody try it? Any good?

There is an ostrich farm on the Island of Curacao. Quite good actually. it's been since 1999 since I had any. Not a very common food in Alaska.

Eating meat is not a choice, it's an instinct! You know what the name for a vegetarian Native American is? Bad Hunter.

We weren't born with canines to let them just sit there unused. We are supposed to eat meat, and I savor every minute of it. There is a very large difference between consumption of meat and cruelty to animals, one you don't seem to understand. Reminds me of the bumper sticker I saw a few days ago: "Save a cow - Eat a vegetarian." That reminds me, I think I'm going to change my signature.  Silly

As for the buffalo meat, it has become very common, and the one I had was in a steakhouse in Cheyenne, WY, where almost half the menu was buffalo. I think they even sell a buffalo burger at Friendly's back in NJ.

Ted Turner is the co-owner of a resturant chain called Ted's Montana Grill that has buffalo on the menu. Ted Turner is one of the largest owners of buffalo in North America. I've had buffalo once, I liked it. It's like a leaner version of beef, you can't cook it past medium rare or else it gets tough and dry. In areas of the Great Plains, it is not uncommon to see buffalo on the menu at resturants. I remember seeing on the menu at several places in the Black Hills, but I wasn't exactly looking to try it at the time (I was 15 and very hesistant to try anything unusual).

I like buffalo meat, deer meat, rabbit meat (I haven't had any in many years, but remember how tasty it was, and I've even tried squirrel (Old redneck neighbors where I used to live at about 20 years back.).
