Feel like eating beaver?


The Finns eat Bear…but what about eating a bit of beaver?

On our last hunt in Wisconsin, Steve and Wildlife Biologist Karl Malcolm threw down some traps and pulled a beaver out of a local stream.  We ate the hams in the field and the hide will be made into a pillow, but the tail had a date with some serious cooking.  Chefs-in-training at the International Culinary Center in New York City have been looking to get their hands on a beaver tail for a while, and we were happy to supply one.  Here are some pics of the beaver in the field, in the pan, and on the table. –Dan Doty
