Its ok. Not my favorite. Trim off the glands and fat, boil it till its tender. Remove the rest of the fat. change the water and boil again. Pull it off the bone and put the meat in a crock pot. Covcer it half up with KC masterpiece bbq sauce the cover it with gates hot bbq sauce. Let it cook awhile on low. 3-4 hours. Put the bbqed meat on opened up hamburger buns on a plate. Eat with a fork. Potato chips and dill pickles are good sides with it.

I don't eat anything a coyote won't eat. Not knocking those who do, however. To each his own.

Always heard the meat was greasy and that you needed to keep them caged and feed corn for a few days before eating one.

I tried it it reminded me a lot of turkey leg

a young female dispatched an cleaned right away , cut all the fat off and parboiled then cooked

I would do it again, if I caught a good candidate and I had the time.

I had it bbq at a game feast. It was ok nothing to brag on but not bad either. Could have been a poor cook.

That said I have seen enough parasites in them that I would need to be getting hungry before I see them or opossum as table fare.

Put another way if I have coon, opossum, coyote, fox, muskrat and beaver carcasses laying in the yard the beaver and muskrat would quickly be devoured by the cats. The rest would lay there tell it rotted had I not dumped it. If the cats won't eat it I probably shouldn't either.

I just ate beaver for the first time tonight. Now I had no idea what I had been throwing away. I bet muskrat may be good also if there is enough meat to mess with on one.

Baking in a broiler pan so the grease falls out and it doesn’t sit inthat grease helps a lot.

Bout the best snapping turtle bait though so wouldn’t waste that

I've eaten alot of coon . I prepare like Danny does except I like to apply my sauce at the time I eat it . I like coon on white bread with ketchup . I have cooked up a dozen at a time before and froze sandwich bags of shreaded meat . It keeps well like this . It also makes good tacos sauteing the shredded meat with onions and taco seasoning .

Coyotes eat cooked coon

Especially if they are burnt in open flame.
