I am going to go out coyote hunting in the next few weeks. Since I always try to eat what I kill, I wanted to find out how you cook up these little guys. Anyone with a great coyote recipe out there?

My recipe must work pretty well as I don't have any leftovers. After shooting the coyote, I leave it in the field so the sun can slow cook it. I let it cook for 7-10 days to make sure that it is done. When I go check on it, I find that the neighbors must have crept in while I wasn't looking and eaten it. It must have been pretty tasty as fur and some bones are the only thing left.

Why not eat coyote? Everyone told me how awful, stinky, vile, repulsive, nasty, and gut wrenching eating Javelina is. It turns out that it is extremely tasty, if cleaned right and cooked right. My buddy made them into tamales, and yuuuuummmyyyy!! I found that most who thought javelina was awful, had never had it. So all you who are telling me how bad coyote is, have YOU tasted it?

When in Korea, and any other cullure I visit for that matter, I like to try to local customs and cullinary flavors. Along with the Soju, we went out and tried dog. It was ok, ours was slow cooked over a grill that resembled an Habatchi grill, marinated with some fruit based glaze then rolled in cabage leaves with steamed-white rice.

I found it edible, not my favorite, but not the worst thing I have ever had. Even found it more desireable than T rats.

I can't say I have ever tried yote, but it can't be much worse.

June 13, 2006, 01:20 PM
Must admit...yes, I have tried it and no, its not terrible. Every species I have shot I have at least eaten once. Prairie dogs and buzzards are at the very bottom of my list. By comparison, coyote is excellent. I have no earth shattering recipes to offer, treat it like meat (put it on the grill). If it doesnít taste good to you that way, have your buddy turn them into tamales. Everything tastes good when it becomes tamales. If you are up for a culinary experience, try skunk. You will be surprised how good skunk is, seriously! Now cleaning it on the other hand, that aint a lot of fun, however if you shoot them properly (no spray) it is only a moderate bother. Best to goad a friend into it, ďHey, if you clean that skunk, Iíll eat itĒ, seems to work in my experience.

Skin a few that have had their chest cavity turned into jelly from a soft point .223 bullet and see if you still have an appetite. Or better yet, get a skinnny mangy flea and tick covered one in the dead heat of summer. Folks ask me often what I do with dead coyotes, My answer "absoultely nothing."

I'd have to agree that eating scavengers may not be the best idea ever but I just felt that I should at least try everything at least once. In many cases once is definitely enough. Hammy, thanks for the compliment, the one piece of advice Iíd pass you is COOK THOUROUGHLY!! But honestly, you never know till you try. How tough (or hungry) do you think the first guy to eat an oyster was? A rock with some goop in the middle? But dang they are good!
Roadkill, Iíd wager you have made jelly donuts out of some deer too and didnít loose an appetite (or at least still ate it). But Hammy, donít let your first plate full come off of one of those ďskinny mangy flea and tick covered one in the dead heat of summerĒ that just donít sound appetizing.

I was considering this too, but we did not get any last weekend for I'm new to calling....translation, lousy.

I thought about it, but i think I'd rather harvest the pelt than eat the critter. But hey, it might be worth a try. I suspect I'd marinate it a long, long time and cook it thoroughly.

I'm telling you, cheese fondu! Have some of your high end friends over. Prepare a plethora of scrumptious cuts of veal, chicken, etc. Add a little pile of coyote tenderloins. No one will know. Just be aware of the coyote meat you are personally eating. If you use a fairly strong cheese recipe, you can get the meat in your stomach without it ever touching your taste buds. Therefore you kill two birds with one stone. First, you pay homage to the animal you took the previous day. Second, you get to watch your friends squirm and try to swallow the meat you have prepared for them. It sounds a little mean, but will provide a good story at future late night campfires. If you have any decency at all though, just leave the friends out of it, and try the fondu yourself.

Scorpucla-

Interesting comment. Not to change the thread topic, but I could use some good dove recipes. The one I have that works for any bird meat is:


1/2-1 lb. of whatever bird (chicken, dove, quail, etc.)
1 8 oz block of cream cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 package dry italian dressing mix

crock pot on low for 6 hours. Yummy!!!

[B]Roadkill, I’d wager you have made jelly donuts out of some deer too and didn’t loose an appetite (or at least still ate it).[B]

I hunt deer with a 30-30 using 150g sps, even a solid hit in the chest doesn't make anyway near the same mess a .223 round does on a coyote. Little gooey dressing out a deer sometimes, but never kept me from eating it. I guess eating coyote reminds me of an old girlfriend. Pretty good if you could get past the hair and the smell.

Roadkill,
You are a sick, sick individual. :D I'll remember that one.

I imagine that how well coyote tastes is directly related to how hungry you are. Personally, I hope I never get that hungry, again. I ate a raccoon one time. It was pretty good, but I was also very hungry.

I liked the "planked coyote" recipe. Works well for shad, too.

i always thought that animals that eat predominatly protein diets, taste bad. this is why i don't eat coyote. now i could be wrong, but our coyote locally have diets that consist mainly of rabbit and young deer, in other parts of the country where they may be more scavenger like, the taste may not be as bad, but i am not eating them.

You guys are tougher than I. No way would I eat a coyote or buzzard! (I think that one's worse!)

Sad news. Went out last Saturday, and came home empty handed. We got out about 30 minutes before sun up. We found a place where two washes (dry river beds for the guys back east) merged, and hiked up on a hill next to it. Called for about 20 minutes and decided to hit another spot. Just as we were headed to the car, a yote started yapping about 200 yards from us, in a thick area that we couldn't see in to. They probably were still coming in when we quit calling, but when he saw us he yapped to warn his buddies. Bummer. Then we went to a great spot, up high over a valley, where we had at least a mile view. Called there for 30 minutes, and nothing showed up. It was a little later in the morning, so they may have hunkered in for the day by then. We proceeded to our favorite plinking spot on the way home (polishing off a few jack rabbits on the way). I was ready with my gloves, knife, gut hook, and mosquito repellant (so the ticks and fleas don't jump from it to me). I hope to get out in a month, so I will keep this updated.

I am Hammy, Hammy is me, would you like to try some coyote?
I do not like to eat coyote.

Would you eat it in a box, would you eat it rather than fox?

Not in a box, surely would rather have fox.
I do not like that coyote, I do not like it Mr. Hammy.

Would you like it in fondue, could you eat it in a veggie stew?
I’ve heard BBQ is good, or maybe over mesquite wood?

Not in fondue, not in a stew,
Not BBQ, and not over wood.
I will not eat that coyote,
I’m sure I can’t stand it Mr. Hammy.

You say you don’t like, you tell Hammy,
But taste it taste it, you will see.

Hey this is quite tasty, this coyote
I can really stand it, Mr. Hammy.

So I will eat it in a box,
And I would rather have IT, than fox.
And I will eat it in a cheese fondue,
Over mesquite wood on a BBQ.

Oh how wrong I was, I now can see,

Substitute the dog with Coyote.


Stewed Dog (Wedding Style)

Ingredients :

3 kg Dog meat, * see note
1 1/2 cup Vinegar
60 x Peppercorns, crushed
6 tbl Salt
12 x Cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup Cooking oil
6 cup Onion, sliced
3 cup Tomato sauce
10 cup Boiling water
6 cup Red pepper, cut into strips
6 piece bay leaf
1 tsp Tabasco sauce
1 1/2 cup Liver spread, ** see note
1 whl fresh pineapple, cut 1/2 inch thick

Method :

* 1. First, kill a medium sized dog, then burn off the fur over a hot fire.
* 2. Carefully remove the skin while still warm and set aside for later (may be used in other recpies)
* 3. Cut meat into 1" cubes. Marinade meat in mixture of vinegar, peppercorn, salt and garlic for 2 hours.
* 4. Fry meat in oil using a large wok over an open fire, then add onions and chopped pineapple and suate until tender.
* 5. Pour in tomato sauce and boiling water, add green peper, bay leaf and tobasco.
* 6. Cover and simmer over warm coals until meat is tender. Blend in liver spread and cook for additional 5-7 minutes.
* * you can substiture lamb for dog. The taste is similar, but not as pungent.
* ** smooth liver pate will do as well.
* Suggested Wine: San Miguel Beer
* Serving Ideas : Rice, naturally.


* NOTES : During my wedding reception, my brother- in-law suggested we add to the feast by having dog stew. Wanting to be part of the family, and having been subjected to all sorts of socials tests already, I agreed. The result was... well.. a lot better than I expected. In fact, it was great! It was only later I found out that dog should
*not* be served at weddings, as it may make the bride and groom flight like dogs during the honeymoon. But what the heck. It didn't seem to have that effect... at least not until a few year later.
* ) For the faint of heart, you can always substitute lamb in place of next door's rover, but the meat will not be as sweet or as rich in flavor.

I was a professional chef in China back in the late 1990's. I cooked Dog and wild dog several times.
The best way is in Hot pot stew. Dig a hole in the ground and set a fire.
let the fire burn down to coals
Put a pot of hot water or stock on the coals in the hole and cover it.
Get the water or stock to boiling. Add is carrots, celery, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce.

Take a plate of thinly sliced dog or coyote and using chop sticks dip it in the hot soup and eat piece by piece.

The best part of eating a dog is eating the PENIS. It gives men masculine power. The balls are good too.

To eat these. Cut a slit in the dog and fold its penis and balls into the slit. Roast the dog in a big oven or dig a hole, build a fire with coals, put corrugated tin on the coals, cover it with wet burlap. Cover it with More coals and dirt.

Dig up and enjoy. Make sure a woman is around. These parts are an aphrodesiac. YUMMY.

Everyone says that predator meat is bad... and from what little experience I've had, I tend to agree. Every meat eating mammal I've ever tried was just bad.

How then do you explain predatory fish, and reptiles? The only non-predatory fish I can think of that people eat are sardines. Halibut, a very predatory fish, may be the best tasting critter on the planet. Every reptile I know of is either a predator, a scavenger, or both. Turtle and gator are good, though I never cared for snake (perhaps I just haven't had it cooked right?).

What's the difference?

cmidkiff,

I suspect the difference is that wild scavengers and predators tend to be riddled with scent glands. Up until extremely recently (1980s health craze) pork was often fed a small-ish portion of meat scraps, and the result was a meat that is actually superior to today's pork in a lot of ways, e.g. better marbling, sweeter flavour.

From what I've heard most wild cats tend to make for a sweet, if tough meat, but can also be tough to butcher due to scent glands. I'd imagine most predators are the same. Fish don't really tend to mark territory like mammals do.

I haven't (and doubtfully ever will) tried coyote, but I have eaten dog, and that experience has quite a bit to do with why coyote is unlikely for me. In college I spent most of my money on beer, shooting, and girls--in no particlar order. I pretty well wasted the rest. At any rate, I didn't have much for food. I inadvertantly ate a cat (it was in a buddy's frig (he was 1/2 Cherokee) and I thought it was a rabbit--tail was cut off--so I fried it up). When I found out what it was, I already knew it had tasted pretty OK, so I commenced to eating a lot of cats. Cheap! Directly, cats got hard to come by, so I thought I'd try dog, as the population was still good. I did and it was inedible! Horrid! That was enough to keep me from trying coyote, which smells much worse than a dog to start with.

When I was in the Navy... Several trips to the Philippines. There were BBQ push carts with Monkey, (supposedly Beef or Goat), on a stick. Beef and Goat isn't near as stringy as Monkey meat. It's pretty easy to tell what you're not eating. There's always mut dogs running the streets over there. I'll have to bet that I've had dog. Scavengers they were, no different than Coyote.

Mm Mm Tasty!

So, for recipe. Just your best BBQ sauce with a little Beer added.

As you will surely get nautious just from the smell as you prepare it be sure to have plenty of Pepto and other stomach and bowel medicines handy. After consuming retire to the couch with a puke bucket and baby wipes and enjoy...:eek:

Shoot the Coyotes. Build a blind close by, then shoot and cook the Buzzards when they come to feed. I'll bet they're just dandy too.

Oh, and be sure and open your windows when you try to cook this stuff.

Coyote tastes a little like Spotted Owl... Thoes must have been over cooked. Ive always found them to taste kind of like a cross between a seagull and a bald eagle.

Yeah, I really don't like eating that genre: White Fang and Call of the Wild are just too dry and Old Yeller has a gamey taste. Where the Red Fern Grows is just too mushy to my taste.





On another note, I think you mean GENUS, not genre.

Have had nice fat puppy tamales made by a friend's grandmother over at 3rd Mesa of Hopi. Would have to cast my vote for 'otey tamales too, but am pondering the tacos. That might work. Gonna have to find a coyote from a diff. part of the country than here though...buncha scrawny rascals. :D

A lot of things sound disgusting inside a warm house with a nice full belly and a pantry full of food.

I'd eat Coyote.
If I weren't starving, I might trap one and feed it very well for a month or so and then eat it.

Mostly it's just a social taboo. There is no spoon (that won't serve coyote).

There are a lot of people who might get squeamish at the idea of eating bull testes, but when castrating in the field they come right off and fry up nice.
Same with Reindeer.

True, there is a social taboo.

However, I have a problem with eating scavenger mammals/birds. It is far beyond a societal taboo. I'm willing to try most things, but I draw the line at scavengers. (Scavenger aquatics are a different matter entirely, and it has to do with how the mammals/birds differ from fish. Also, crab/shrimp/lobster are FAR too tasty to give up)

Recently I had some doubts about this forum, but I have fully changed my mind. I started this thread in June 06', and after almost 5000 views, and LOTS of comments, I have to say that I am surprised. After seeing these nasty scavengers for so many years here in arizona, I wondered if anyone had been crazy enough to eat one. Well, we had some takers. And I have to say I have great respect for those who have. I hope I never have to eat one, but if it comes down to that, I'm in! For those who did not read my famous Mr. Hammy poem, here is a repost. Enjoy!




Mr. Hammy


I am Hammy, Hammy is me, would you like to try some coyote?
I do not like to eat coyote.

Would you eat it in a box, would you eat it rather than fox?

Not in a box, surely would rather have fox.
I do not like that coyote, I do not like it Mr. Hammy.

Would you like it in fondue, could you eat it in a veggie stew?
Iíve heard BBQ is good, or maybe over mesquite wood?

Not in fondue, not in a stew,
Not BBQ, and not over wood.
I will not eat that coyote,
Iím sure I canít stand it Mr. Hammy.

You say you donít like, you tell Hammy,
But taste it taste it, you will see.

Hey this is quite tasty, this coyote
I can really stand it, Mr. Hammy.

So I will eat it in a box,
And I would rather have IT, than fox.
And I will eat it in a cheese fondue,
Over mesquite wood on a BBQ.

Oh how wrong I was, I now can see,
Thank you, thank you Mr. Hammy.

Howdy.

You know I'm new to hunting predators myself. When I took my test here in colorado, I was surprised to find that if you get a Cougar license, YOU ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO PREPARE THE MEAT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.

Yuuuuck...my stomach turned at first. Eat a KITTY? Now (without getting into dirty jokes) it took me a while to get my mind around the idea that cougars-even tho they are cats-might just be edible. Heck, if the law says they are edible, and if it requires that they be processed, then what the heck?

So...the next conclusion I came to was like what oldhammy thought: then why not eat coyotes?

I googled this question and found this:
"Animals taste like what they eat. Carnivores in general are stronger flavored (and tougher). Even herbivores vary depending on their feed. Predators are also top consumers. All of the environmental contaminants are concentrated in their flesh."

OK, if that is true, then why are mountain lions a delicacy? Shark is an apex predator, and yummy it's good. So I'm not buying that story.

Coyotes DO eat carrion, but don't lions?

The Asians eat them: the Chow-Chow was raised by the chinese for food, and that's how the word "chow" entered our vocabulary. The Innuit eat them, and the humble little Chihuahua was raised to be eaten.

So...why NOT eat coyotes?

I'm up for trying it at any rate. I'll just put my dog in her crate and throw a blanky over the top so she doesn't think she's next.

Hammy, Let us know if you find a good recipe!

I'll do it. I'm going out tomorrow, if I get a young one I may make some tacos or something. People eat bears, they eat the same stuff. Besides, I hate shooting animals and leaving them but these coyotes are going to learn one way or another to leave the deer alone. The asians eat 'em, the indians used to eat 'em, I'll do it too! My wife is gonna be so pissed...I brought home a jackrabbit my little bro shot a month or two ago. We were always told not to eat them but we were out of elk and didn't want to waste him. We crocked him and he was excellent, and the best part was he filled up the entire crock pot! My brother and I could not finish him in one sitting! I'll do it again.

Side note: anybody ever try bobcat? Lions are supposed to be good...

Well, I hate to renig but I got this little male yesterday. He was young but I couldn't cut him up. I skinned him out and he had some meat on his haunches but he stunk and I couldn't cut his hams off. Part of the problem is that I have a freezer full of elk, which I know is delicious. I just couldn't justify it with all the elk I've got. Maybe when I run out of elk, now I'm pretty curious.

Thats like "Last Ditch" food up this way, in the land meat and berrys.
Its an old starvation tale about the Arctic that go's along the lines that if your hungry enough to have to eat a Dog, Fox, Wolf or Wolverine, you will allways be insatably hungry for the rest of your days.

When I was a kid in college, a few buddy's took me down to "Boy's Town" in Nuevo Laredo. We stopped into a shack and scarfed down some awesome fajitas. (The rest of our adventures down there were a bit on the "blue" side - so I'll skip over them - lol.)

I later found that the were dog fajitas, but still brag about how incredibly delicious they were.

I'm planning on going coyote hunting for the first time later this year and planning on marinading it overnight like I would skirt steak (which once upon a time was considered scrap meat too).

Tasty but easy fajitas marinade:
Old El Paso fajitas marinade (comes in a jar)
Beer - MGD, Beck's or any decent ale
Finely diced onion
1/4 finely diced habanero

Season the meat by massaging in garlic powder, pepper and sea salt

Set in the frig overnight in ziplock bags
turn them over every so often

Fire up the BBQ with some good ole mesquite

I tried it a couple weeks ago. It was edible. I finally shot one that didn't reek like a skunk (most of them do). I did it like this (link below), except I let it marinade for 24 hrs instead of 1hr. Like I said, it was decent, hard to ruin tacos. The meat was pretty tough, especially for backstraps, but didn't taste bad. I have his hams in the freezer.

I'm thinking yote tacos with lots of pico de gallo or habanero salsa, a side of guacamole, and a cold beer to wash it all down. Life's good.
Habenero's , pico, guac, and beer solve a great many problems.

My grandmother raised up ten kids through the last part of the Depression by herself, after my grandfather was killed. Trust me when I say she had a recipe for everything. If it walked, crawled, swam or flew, she had a pan it would fit in. Growing up, I learned real quick, if it hit the ground it went in the skillet. It made me a MUCH better person knowing that simply shooting stuff for the sake of shooting it was out of the question. Still to this day, unless there is a REAL issue with some poor critter, I generally go my way, and let them go theirs. She was only around until I was about 9 or so, but the things she believed in, still to this day are etched into my being.

Yes in those few years I was around her, I had quite a bit of questionable tablefare from her kitchen, but in her house you ate what was put in front of you and liked it or you went hungry. She believed that God put everything here for a reason, and she made do with what he gave her and her family to get by on. Didn't seem to put much hampering on them, they all grew up into pretty health folks.

Like has been mentioned, if your hungry you will eat, no matter what it is. Some might be good, some not so good, but most things will fill the void and provide nourishment when nothing else is available. Have I personally eaten a yote, nope not yet, but there are a few things I have, that I would rather not revisit. Some from her kitchen, and some form my own. There are things that just don't stay put after they are swallowed. Personally I would most likely head straight for a platter of grilled yote, over one stalk of boiled okra any day.

"I can skin a 'yote, I can run a trot line. A country boy can survive."

I tried a plate of ki-gogi prepared by my roommate's Korean ol' lady when I was at Fort Hood. It wasn't bad. Don't know what specific flavor it was made from. But from what I've seen yotes are so mangy around here it'd be tough to prep it knowing I was gonna pare-boil it and fry it up in hot peppers when it fell off the bone. I'll probably try it if I ever get one. I've only seen one here in south central NC but I'm buying a call and giving it a go.

Things I have eaten:

deer
bear
alligator
rattler
squirrel
coon
possum
ki-gogi (dog)
rabbit
wild pig
dove
pheasent
just about anything that lives in water and has fins, claws, or tentacles

I have had beaver (the dam building kind) and raccoon at game feeds. Usually made as stuffing. Wasn't bad. As with all less than terrific meat, make summer sausage out of them. Even goose and shovelers are great when made into summer sausage.

Why the hell would somebody lie about eating coyote??? I will say it took me awhile to actually do it after I decided I was going to. The problem with coyotes is that most of them smell about like your average skunk. People who say things like "oh, I'll eat anything I kill, I would definetely eat a coyote if I shoot one" have probably never skinned a coyote (obviously you have-they reek:D). They are generally pretty foul animals. The one I took some cuts off of didn't smell like a skunk, otherwise I would have passed like usual. If there's one thing I'm not, it's a picky eater, but coyote toes the line of what I'll eat and not eat. They are in fact made of meat though. The fact that they are dogs makes no difference to me, LOTS of cultures eat dog without reservation. Americans are generally overly picky about what they eat. The problem with coyotes is the smell (and parasites, cook 'em real well).

I have never eaten coyote but i have never shot a coyote. I have zero coyote experience. To me the "anti coyote eaters" on this thread and other threads in other forums sound awful similar to "anti deer eaters" that I are friends and family of mine. Either wont try it cause its gross and wrong or had it once and was horribly prepared so they "know" they hate deer meat and can pick deer meat out a mile away, which I know they cant and and most of them wouldn't know the difference if I gave them a deer cheese burger instead of beef.
