Title: Wild Game Nutritional Info
Post by: Big58cal on February 05, 2013, 11:06:57 AM
Not a recipe, but still pretty interesting.  Outdoor Life did an article where they listed the nutritional information for some common critters in North America.

For comparison, here's the info for a 3 oz piece of beef round roast:

Contrary to popular belief, I'm probably watching my calories and fat more than you are "tubby"!  ;D

Just thought the article was interesting.  You hardly ever find that kind of info.  Matter of fact, I don't believe I've ever seen that kind of info for turtle.  I LOVE TURTLE!  Of course fried probably doesn't help matters.  ::) ;D

Yeah, but fried turtle is good and I bet there is stuff in fried turtle (and squirrel) that a body needs. We always feel good after some good fried turtle and squirrel, so it has to be good for ya, right?

I have known a lot of folks that would disagree, but I have outlived them. So, I am convinced I am right because I am the one above the sod.  A fella can't argue with hard facts.   ;D
