I agree, its to bad they are such marginal table fare.
My wife even made jerky from sand hill crane. Everone said it was very good but I couldn't get myself to eat more that I few bites beacause I just couldn't stand the thought of eating such an ugly bird.
We also have a meat market that will make us verious goose sausages and meat sticks, maple, hot etc. They are a combination of goose and pork. They are atually very good and now that I have my smoker I am thinking of trying to make my own this year. With as many geese as we shoot a year up here in minnesota we are always looking for new ways to use the meat.
The one thing I have always lived by is that if I am going to shoot them I better be willing to eat them.
