Vegetarians keep calm and Hodgepodge on.

A- There are no hunters in my immediate family. Growing up my sister, brother and dad all hunted. I have had the luxury of tasting rabbit, venison, duck, squirrel, bear, alligator, frog legs, bison, and maybe a few more I can't recall right now. I would like to taste pheasant and goose.
