    Having been raised by a family who remembered the depression era days in the riverbottoms of East Arkansas you learned that alot of things were eatable most never dreamed of & in fact were quite good at that, this being one of them.

    Some of the local VFD's on the east coast like around NJ have muskrat suppers during trapping season to raise money for the FD. They fry them things by the truck load and usually run short on orders. SaltyDog, the new member from NJ can tell you more about them when he gets settled in...d2

    Not only have I not eaten them, I've never heard of anyone that had. Never say never, but I've not been that hungry yet.
  12. Shoot, Id eat about anything except maybe a cottonmouth or a owl (its bad luck to eat an owl). Do they have kernels in them you gotta get out?
