Wilderness Survival: Eat Crow Readers!

Have you ever eaten a crow? I have! Back in 2014, I decided to put my money where my mouth is so to speak. I wanted to know -- if Crow were the only meat available in a survival situation, would it be barf-o-rama, or would it be tolerable? the spirit of educating myself in order to share the experience with you, I ate crow.....

Into the pot it goes - yuck!

Crow are carrion feeders, so I had to boil it for 30 mins straight to ensure that no bad microbes remained. Shown here is the Crow after it had been fully cooked:

Unfortunately, a huge thunderstorm rolled up and a dropped a ton of rain right after I took this photo, so I had to huddle up in a tent and eat the Crow and was not able to take any more photos. Suffice it to say, I was quite surprised by the way it tasted!
