    Question About Goat Kills

    I've heard you can eat the rear legs of goats, but is there anything else you can eat? or are they just a pest for the most part?

    Cheers in advance!

    Yep. The whole animal really.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Probably the only part you couldn't eat is the teeth, It is after all the most eaten meat in the world.

    Our house Would rather eat slow roasted goats back wheels than lamb or mutton. Goat curry and sausages are also good

    Seems most people are put off by the fact its "goat" but then they are used to their meat coming in nice little packages rather than the "Original Wrapper"

    Normally you would only take females for the table as the males are quite rank.
    The rear legs roast up really well, and the back straps are very good too.
    My cousins kids love eating goat, they even prefer it over venison. Sacrilegious little sods!
    It is good food tho and don't mind it myself. Curry's well too.
    If you can just be yourself,
    You can be anything.

    All goats are terrible eating. I'd leave them be and find something else to eat.

    Goat meat is fantastic. I prefer roast leg of goat to lamb.

    The younger nannies are the best eating, avoid the mature stinky billies.

    The most under rated meat around. In my mind you cant go past a young nanny or for that matter a young billy. BBQ or curried in a slow cooker. YUM YUM.

    male or female does not matter.
    Age of animal plays a part but there are plenty of ways to cook meat to get the best out it.
    After 6 1/2 years living in Africa I will never pass a goat in the bush again.
    I also prefer it over Lamb these days.
