Question Skunk stew???

Before I left Germany, my daughter and I were watching an old re-run of Happy Days. The one where the Cunninghams help run the dude-ranch. Richie starts out rambeling about the fact that pioneers used to eat skunk........."Yeah, that's right bucko, I said P-U skunk!" When the guest were moaning that the food was beans, again, because Al couldn't get the steer roasted.

Funny..............I thought.

But my daughter looked at me and simply asked, "Really?"

I quickly said , "No way."

But was I a liar? Has a brave soul found a way to munch the smelly animals without, some how, setting off the stink? I really doubt it, but as y'all know, I am wrong from time to time.

Jon

This little post should get some attention but as of yet I have never tried that one.

I don't have any experience in eating skunk, but have had 'possum

I think everything possible or edible has been eaten in the world, like rats, crow, sparrow, etc, and just today I read that in Peru the latest delicacy is guinnea pigs. But I don't personally know anybody who has eaten skunk!! Waidmannsheil, Dom.

i dont really think i could do it, the thing i keep thinking about is the fact that field dressing a skunk must be extremely similar to diffusing a bomb, do NOT cut the wrong wire anywhere near home

i've heard a story before from someone that had some old country relatives and commonly cooked 'coons and one day a buddy came in while they were out and a coon was "roasting" and when it was finished it he gladdly helped himself to it. The guys came back and informed him it was a skunk they were cooking the fat of off(why you'd do that i don't know) his remark "it did seem a little stringy"
