Not to hijack the other thread.
While doing a re-enactment at Fort De Chartres, we had a big pot of venison stew on.
A woman tourist walked past our camp and started asking questions about our tents, guns, and gear.
Her attention then turned to the stew cooking over the fire.
She asked to try it.
My buddy got her a bowl and spoon then scooped her up some.
She scarfed it down then asked for more.
This was our supper.
He told her to help herself.
She dipped the ladle in and he told her to dig deeper, the puppies are on the bottom.
She said WHAT?
He told her that the momma dog seemed to float to the top but the puppies seemed to sink to the bottom.
She threw the bowl an spoon down and ran away gagging.
We sat back and laughed our butts off.

What part is disgusting to you?
The fact that a complete stranger walked up to us and wanted a free meal and then seconds or that we had a little fun with said freeloader with our venison stew?

He could have just told her it was venison and probably got the city girl just the same.

Happened over 30 years ago and I think itís still the funniest thing I was ever part of.
How he kept a straight face saying it is beyond me.

"She dipped the ladle in and he told her to dig deeper, the puppies are on the bottom. "

"Puppies on the bottom stew"
On a Colorado elk hunt in 2004 or 2005, I tagged my bull the first morning so had nothing to do for 3 days while waiting for the meat processor. The outfitter had a new to his operation cook- a tough looking self acclaimed 1/2 Indian 60-ish woman who was the only other human in camp. One day she was cleaning out the fridge of various types and amounts of left-overs and dumping everything into a large stock pot. I queried her as to the intentions of this and she said not to worry it would be good.
At supper that night, the guides and hunters were scooping out large quantities of this glop UNTIL one Dr from Pennsylvania asked what it was. W/o missing a beat the old girl loudly stated "Puppies on the bottom stew" and spoons dropped across the room. Some of the guides knew better but the hunters were upset.
The next morning, she made an apology but the damage was done--none of the hunters ate any more soup unless they opened the can.

Like pwillie, we ate lots of "game" in 'Nam. We got monkey noodle soup at least once a week, as well as occasional dog (the locals saved that for themselves usually) and water buffalo. All good, especially the monkey noodle soup. We had holy red deer once. A copter crew shot it in Cambodia, and it was "holy" because they used a 7.62 gatling gun. Mostly holes.

Meat is meat, folks. And every part of an animal is meat.

For a number of years (4-6) I was always invited to the Alumni Banquet at Haskell Indian College. I didn't know at that time I had a small amount of Indian blood in me. How they knew I don't know. Menu was always the same, Buffalo burgers, potato salad, vegetable of the day and soft ice cream for dessert. No dog stew, dang it.

A friend from work had a wild game feed every year for co-workers. He always had fish, quail, pheasants sometimes deer. He also always made a pot of barbeque of some unknown varmint. It could be anything that walked or crawled, but it was always good.

He would have us guess what critter gave it's life for the BBQ. One time nobody could figure what it was and the young guys were pushing for the answer. "What is it Bob?" He said "You know that half breed litter of pups I had?"

It wasn't, but it easily could have been. He had a lot of friends on the Potawatomie reservation and they did sample an occasional dog.

Pal of mine is a White Mountain Apache outta Arizona. His specialty is Aboriginal Cuisine. He's cooked us snake, coatamundi(sp), various birds, nutria, bugs, bear parts & Brown dog.
He never makes it into stew, choosing to showcase the star of the meal.
I asked him why "Brown dog" one time, and his reply reminded me of the fascination with black beeves and the thinking that all black cows are "Angus".
He told me, "Brown dog good".
