Never considered eating one but, there are some pretty avid chuck hunters here so hopefully some will chime in.

Re: Woodchuck for dinner?

Never ate a ground hog.....

But collected a nice young rockchuck. Cleaned and saved the back half. There wasn't much to the front half.

I lived at the time, next to a drive in theater and figured I'd cook the chuck on the hibachi and watch the movie. I snaked wires from the closest parking spot so I could hear the audio too.

That little sucker muscled up like the Hulk. I kept cooking and it kept muscling up.

When done it had great flavor but was unchewable. Texture of and inner-tube, literally.

I'd suggest doing what the folks do in Oak Harbor, Ohio for muskrat days.

Pressure cook the darn thing till its tender then do something fancy with it. Maybe BBQ or something.......

Good luck!

I've never eaten woodchuck before but I've had beaver a few times, and I must say it was quite good.

Re: Woodchuck for dinner?

One of my colleagues at work used to regularly eat whistle pig growing up in TN, but we never got a chance to get the Virginia variety on a plate. Grass eater, should taste pretty good...

Second the comment for overcooking. I'd think like squirrel, if you over-do it it may be un-chewable...my Mom fries it and I like stew or Chili.
