The porcupine is rarely an intentional hunter's target, but many hunters take a whack at one when they come across it inadvertently. Some People encourage this, particularly Foresters who resent the porky's habit of "ringing" trees, leading to the tree's eventual death. Others insist that porcupines should be killed only in dire emergency; they have been called a "walking lunchbox." Since porcupines are very slow-moving, anyone lost in woods where porcupines live can always eat. The animal can be easily killed with a club for a source of food.

Whatever your particular attitude is, should you want to try a porcupine, go right ahead. It is not necessarily true that they taste like kerosene! The porcupine cleans out easily. Much as you would proceed with a rabbit, slit the belly area, thus avoiding the quills. Naturally, remove the stomach. The hide peels off easily, as does the rabbit's, right down to the feet and there you are with lean, dark meat. (In Pennsylvania, if the quills aren't to be saved, they are first singed off, then the skin is cut off.) Porkies range from 9 to 40 pounds.

New England Broiled Porcupine Liver

Recipe By:	Jacqueline E. Knight	

Amount	Measure	Ingredient	Preparation Method
		Porcupine liver(s)	
		Bacon slices	

   Soak the whole liver in salted water for 15 minutes.  Remove, 
drain, and wipe dry.  Cut liver into 3/4-inch-thick slices.  Drop 
slices into boiling water for 1 minute.  Remove, drain, and cool.  
Remove thin membrane fron edges and all gristle and tubes.  Wrap 
each slice with a slice of bacon and broil for 5 minutes.

  Comments:  Since the porky is a sedentary animal, the liver is 
relatively large.  The liver is very sweet and is considered one of 
the finest of game livers.
