Default So far, no luck

I have this great recipe for porcupine

Spent the day in the bush but didnt see one. No rabbits either

Back at it tomorrow!

I plan on hunting SOMETHING in every month of 2021. This month is porcupine.

Not sure what next month will be. I havent thought that far yet....

Porkies are everywhere around here. Hard on the trees.

Not many rabbits though, and usually we have lots. Haven't seen even one to check the color phase & make me think winter is done........

If your goal is to kill one in February and you don't, I guarantee you'll run one over in March.

What did you get last month?

Me too!

Heres a thought: If Randy takes some pictures to go with his escapades, he could publish it with recipes as "Huntinstuff's Culinary Calendar"!

A meal that comes with it's own toothpicks.

What's not to like?

Much respect Sir,
I have always wanted to try porcupine but not to the point of blasting one. I have had the thought of now what? when thinking about shooting one.

Roland Welker from the last season of Alone bbqed a porcupine and it looked amazing considering how rudimentary the bbq was. Threw it whole, right into the fire.

And his line was classic- as he was chewing on it he called it a fat, greasy, bastard. Lol...

Once you skin it tho, always burn the hide/quills. Dont need animals getting hurt afterwards

You'd probably have more luck bagging a porcupine than a deer or moose

There are some folks looking for quills/hair for crafts. May be worth your trouble rather than burning them.

Good luck in your search, I have seen 2 in the last 10+ years around the Hinton/GC area. Sounds like creeks in the prairies are the place to look.
