Wow, that sounds good!
The ones round here eat mostly pine cones.

Does this make them bitter?

If you let them sit in brine overnight, it'll take care of some of the "gamey" taste.

Just give one a try... I'd say you haven't got anything but a little time to lose if you're already killing a few here and there.

It has been several years now since I have taken one, so next time I will give this a go.

Do you like to add any seasonings to your brine?

Brown sugar, garlic, cilantro stems etc.?

I do this with turkeys and pork before frying or smoking and it's really good stuff
