Ya see, whatcha do is carry a can of fourescent orange spray paint in your car. Then when you see a fresh kill on the way to work, you can get out and paint an X on it.

/Then you'll know which ones to pick up on the way home

I mean, I feel like most people think people are picking up rotting nasty roadkill, which obviously isn't the case.

I've hit 2 deer, and they were both delicious. Especially up north, you got a longer window during the winter too. And it only takes a couple minutes to grab some backstraps

It's pretty common where I live. Deer never stays lying on the side of the road for very long before someone scoops it up. Good on them, free food.

he does warn against eating dead native wildlife - which is highly illegal - unless you have a permit to do so.

Define "native"...

Heard somewhere that in numerous states these days one must contact The Authorities & Get Permission to grab a deer one has struck.  Late granddad used to go out with a lengthy firearm, shoot, & tie to car to carry home.  Some of struck deer are given to foodbanks for needy.

My inlaws are from a small, small town. One stoplight, nothing is open after 6 kinda place. They do not eat road kill but father in law loves coon hunting and wants me to put his next kill on the smoker for him.....

I saw a possum eating a dead raccoon along the road last night but I didn't stop to ask its opinion.

raccoon looked a bit greasy and 'gone over' to me but to each their own

awesome possum!

The maggots crawling all over the putrefying flesh probably have more protein and are much fresher, so just forget the roadkill and eat the maggots.

Well you have to contact athorities so they can essentially "tag" it like a deer you hunted, but its not like they are gonna turn you down.

My dad used to stop and pick up dead rattlers in west Texas then he would make us eat them saying they would help our immune system.

I thought he was insane at the time, but now I never get sick.

Go figure. The lunatic may have been right all along.

Fine until someone figures out they can make money selling meat delivery by lightly armoring a self-driving, super fuel efficient car and put a robotic retrieval arm on it to throw the meat into the back where the mobile butchering shop is.

...and forgets when modifying the computer code to deliberately veer towards animals to exclude humans from the list.

I've seen this happen before people, in my nightmares.  This is how it begins.  This is how it ends. Don't fall for it unless you think you can outrun a car.

Assuming 100 pounds of meat, you'd be paying $65/pound. Pretty pricey, bro.

Many years ago I worked temporarily at one of the tabloids writing filler stories that were often somewhat shall we say fictional. In this case I wrote one about the fact that West Va (I think) passed a law making it legal to take roadkill. And that some entrepreneurs were opening a restaurant that served roadkill, a roadkill cafe so to speak.
Fast forward a week and while getting ready for work I hear my wife scream, I run into living room and my story is being discussed on the View of all places. They'd bought it hook, line, sinker, was pretty funny. Most famous thing I ever wrote.
My embellishment btw was the roadkill cafe, the rest was true, prior to the law you had to contact the fish and game or whatever before you could legally take something you ran over. Though now I think there actually is a roadkill cafe.

In the rural town I grew up in it wasn't unheard of to have people intentionally run over deer in their airboats and keep the deer.

I had crockpot coon once, and the texture and taste was very close to pulled pork. It was delicious. Smoked coon would probably be awesome.

FTA: While the thought of eating road kill may not appeal to many, Mr Zell says the major benefit is it's more organic than most supermarket meats, so therefore has no pesticides and antibiotics, and it's free.

Meh, it probably has some. Probably less than those in the supermarket, sure, but it's not like wild animals are sticking exclusively to foraging in "organic" fields. And there's plenty of trace medicine in the water, including antibiotics. Best not to fool oneself about roadkill purity...

Haven't there been articles on fark about how the 'needy' have rejected deer, goose, and other fresh game animals because they think it's an insult or something? I seem to recall reading them from links here. Then there are the ones where the government steps in and says that ain't good enough because someone in the chain doesn't have government's blessing.

Exactly. Wild animals are only as "pure" and "natural" (depending on your definitions) as the environment in which they live. Same as the rest of us.

They are still probably better for you than those cornfed cattle, but even so...

Roadkill is no different than a hunting kill provided it's a clean kill and you get the meat cooled off quickly.

Obviously smeared animals or animals left for days on end should not be eaten!

/dad was really against roadkill
//til I pointed out the back strap he had been raving about from a dinner a few months ago was road kill.

Well if you are in more of a woodsy wild area where they are eating acorns and such and not corn from some farmer's field they won't be full of GMO corn and soybeans.

I dunno.

 But our homeless here were delighted. I heard many a story about someone's uncle, brother, grandfather and how they had the best chili, stew, ribs ect... Guess it brought back fond memories for some, got quite a few wistful smiles out of those stories.

 Others ran off to find their friends excited about the good meal they were going to have and wanted to make sure their friends got some too. (Sounded like a couple were almost a dinner party).

 A few turned us down, but everyone was polite about it.

/lots of heartfelt and very polite thank you's came out.
