That might be pretty limiting, unless he plans to slaughter a whole barnyard. Most people aren't up for that, and the ones that look forward to it, well....what say you, Dexter?

I've shot and dressed out deer and fowl before. I have no qualms with it, but I wouldn't want to do it all the time. And doesn't he have a company to run?

Didn't he say this a number of years ago?

I have no problem with what he's saying, but imagine all the apartments in the Bronx and everyone has a pig or a few chickens or goats roaming around or hanging dressed on the balconies.

Somehow it doesn't work unless you're out in South Dakota somewhere.

Actually, I would like to know more about what to do. I'd probably hunt if I knew what to do with something once I brought it down. If in fact that would even happen.

I'm about 90% harvested and butchered by myself. Like GregT said, it helps or probably required to live in a rural state (Western SD for me). I don't think it's that limiting here as far as only eating one or two proteins. 

Perch, walleye and smallmouth bass are very good freshwater fare available to fish year round. Pheasant, grouse and dove are far better than chicken (although my grandmother lets me take a mean rooster for coq au vin). Deer, pronghorn and elk are all different. I'm also lucky enough that my family still has a cattle ranch for home-raised and butchered beef  as well as help friends with their pork butchering. 

If I didn't love seafood as much as I do, I would be closer to 100%. 

Hank Shaw and Steve Rinella have made hunting and cooking your own wild harvested meat a culinary  journey that is far more vast than in the past. The amount  and variety of game dishes from all over the world is immense. 

State wildlife agencies have classes in many areas on butchering and meat preservation and Youtube is great for different techniques on various species. 

If anyone is ever in Rapid City, SD I'd be glad to share some game and wine. 

Greg, I do owe you a dinner or two for your invaluable advice for Croatian, Slovenian and Hungarian wine when I was traveling there last winter. 

I still think this new format sucks and don't lurk near as often.
