    I've seen a few. Still can't believe they are good eating. I think someone is pulling my leg.

    One of the ones I have killed I ground up like hamburger and made patties and grilled. Pretty good. The meat doesn't like to feed through the grinder because of its consistency.

    One of the best wild game I ever ate. Take it over a steak any day of the week.

    We tried decoying them didn't work so the next year we just pass shot them. They are very weary anything out of place and they won't come near. At least that's what we found.
