Graf;

It's a rodent.  So are squirrels for that matter, but those are the only rodents I can recall that people regularly eat. 

Rat, mouse, lemming, hamster, vole, etc. are all rodents & not usually considered to be table fare.  Beaver is a whole 'nother story.

Justin is spinnin' like a top, but he got no swing here.

I use to hunt and eat woodchuck.  It is really pretty good.  They are strict vegetarians and mostly eat clover and alfalfa.  In the '60s I use to take a small cooler with ice and clean them in the field. The back half is all I'd take.  Lots of meat on the rear legs, thighs and backstraps.  'chuck stew and fried (squirrel-like) 'chucks were my favorites.

I quit eating them in the '80s when I also realized they were loaded with insect infestations, lots of ticks.  guess if you live in a cool hole in darkness you get bugs.  I also see lots of mange-like skin conditions.  Summer hunting probably contributes to the poor look of the animals.

I'll eat them if you clean them.
