Default Tried beaver over the week end

Had a cooking at the farm and decided to try a beaver that was in the freezer.
Not knowing what to expect I wraped in foil with some bacon on top and put in oven at 200 temp for 6 hrs.
Pleasant surprise to all who tried it. We feed about 40 people doves and deer.
Next time I will fix with veges. and it should be hard to tell from beef stew.

Go for a young beaver, and clean all the fat off as well as making sure you have removed all the scent glands.

More likely to find other than the topic of this thread.
