    bet this is the first time this type hunt has been posted about on here........
    older son and i went to Texas, not to be outdone, the wife, younger son, her sister and nephew went to Puerto Rico (using my Hilton Honor points from all my traveling). redneck wife found a guy that takes you on an "iguana safari" using high powered pellet rifles. Two farms, one was a "trophy" farm. could only shoot two there. :)
    she said the key was to shoot them in the body first, as they were hugging the branches, they would raise up and then you shoot them in the head. said it was some kind of fun.

    my son Jackson on the left with cousin Lucas.

    if there's going to be shooting and killing, mommas going to be in the middle of it. Their guide Manuel.

    What happened to the iguanas afterward? I swore I heard that the local people eat those things

    just make sure you cook them to 165 degrees internal temp. Just like chicken, they can carry salmonella.

    This is funny because I was just reading about iguana meat yesterday. For some reason they call it chicken of the trees but then say it is a stringy meat with game taste.
