I haven’t really eaten anything weird in the wild, but while on a foreign exchange trip in Vietnam I ate cat and dog. I ate camel while in the middle east.

Edit: Scruggs' post reminded me about pidgeon. I ate that too while in the middle east.

Hi guys, slightly off topic but you may find this interesting. The journals of Rogers Rangers can be purchased on amazon and are a fantastic read. Not only just an amazing bunch of guys but the book has a lot of information about survival in the harsh circumstances of the times. I am about half way through now and can not recommend it enough.

Thats the one, I've never seen the film but his journals are really good and well worth getting. I find a lot of older books and authors have a lot to say about survival/bushcraft. One author is Robert Ballantyne, great books including 'The Hudson Bay Company' and
' The Fur Traders'

Rats, hit the wrong button before i had finished post. Was about to say that lots of these older books including many hunting, trapping books from the old west are available in pdf or text format from the website mountain men and the fur trade and also from project gutenberg. These sites are always worth a look on a regular basis.
