Eating Woodchucks?

Discussion in 'Indiana Trapping and Varmint Hunting' started by Noblebowhunter, Mar 12, 2007.

  1. :corkysm55 mmm mmmm ..... was wondering if any of you..... wait a minute this is Indiana..... how many :) of you have eatin woodchucks(groundhogs) before? I have heard that the young ones can be quite tasty. At the end of the March a few buddies and i have a small get together for some fine dinin on woodland creatures and thinking about tryin out some young woodchuck. Any inputs?? ways to cook them or anything? Goggleyes i know you have tried them youve ate everything that walks the earth at some point in time. ;)
  2. I had once that had been roasted on a rack in the oven so that the grease could drip away. We cooked it until it was falling apart tender. Not bad.

    It was very young....maybe 3 lbs dressed.

    It would probably make a pretty good Pulled 'Hog Barbque.

  3. 410 has a good recipe:yikes: :yikes: :yikes:
  4. My Grandmother used to pressure cook them. I couldn't stand to be in the house when they were cooking because of the "aroma..." but they tricked me into eating some with some barbeque sauce and had I not known what it was I may have acquired a taste for it.

    Needless to say every spring I would take grandma a few young-uns for her special bar-b-q, somehow, I always had to leave before it was ready though..
  5. OH yes, ground hogs are great to eat, Man I have fixed them about 100 different ways and they all were good. When shooting them hit them in the head.
  6. well the head shots the plan.... i figure a couple days prior to the event there will be plenty of hog huntin.
  7. THis thread begs the age old question: How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood???? Enquiring minds want to know????:banghead3

  8. None if its a head shot:cheeky-sm

  9. Purdue University School of Forestry studies have determined the average volume of wood chucking to be 3 cords to the hour. (Dewey, Skruem and Howell, et al. 1974)
  10. had some one time that was baracued and was pretty good.
  11. the young ones are good fried like squirrel or rabbit - they taste like squirrel or rabbit. (not like chicken):)

  12. I'm beginning to think if it has hair on it 410 will eat it.
  13. No comment.........:rolleyes:
  14. Thank You!!!!!
