    What part of animal do you eat

    I just got back from successful ID OTC public land elk hunting and decided to cook the balls, would like to tell you that they are delicious, unfortunately they are very small and there are only two of them. I am wondering if anybody else eats bull balls or what other parts of the animals do you eat? I think that I eat everything, heart, liver, lungs, kidney, balls, brain, tongue, and ribs. What am I missing?

    I like beef tripe, never tried it from elk, next time. Beef tripe soup is probable Poland most popular dish and it is delicious.

    With only two of the oysters on each bull I don't even consider them, too much trouble for a little bite.

    I start with the liver, then the heart finishing up the first or second week with the tongue. Meat wise some of the best that I have had is the cheek meat off of the skull, but once again a lot of trouble for a little bite. I also haul out all of the bones including ribs and usually will cut my steaks with the bones in them. The bones add too much flavor to leave them on the mountain.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    I suppose you may as well eat them in the states that require you to haul them out...

    Only the normal parts for me.

    No organs for me, especially sex organs! There is too much beef in the freezer for me to dig through the t-bones to get to the testicles! Lol I do commend you for giving it a try!

    I only eat the heart and liver, and last year was my first year eating tongue. I didn't care for it myself.
    I understand the heart, liver, kidneys, brains, etc,,,,,but the lungs sounds abit dicey for me.
    I've never really considered keeping the bones on, maybe next time.
    Great subject.

    I'll eat the heart and any other lean muscle tissue. I can't stand the oil filter (liver) on any animal and the other organs just don't sound good to me at all.
