1 tbsp Salt
1 quart Water
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Paprika
1/2 cup Flour
3 tbsp Fat
3 large onions; sliced
1 cup Sour cream
Skin and clean the muskrat, remove fat, scent glands and white tissue inside each leg. Soak muskrat overnight in a weak brine solution of 1 Tbsp salt to 1 quart water. Drain, disjoint and cut up. Put flour, salt & paprika in a paper bag. Add muskrat pieces and shake until each piece is well coated. Melt fat in heavy fry pan, add the muskrat pieces and saute slowly until browned. When meat is browned, cover with onions, sprinkle with salt and pepper and pour the cream over. Cover fry pan and simmer for 1 hour.
1. Country-Style Groundhog:
1. 7 individual groundhogs
2. ½ cup flour
3. ¼ tsp. salt
4. ¼ tsp. pepper
5. ¼ tsp. soda
6. ¼ c. cooking oil
7. ½ tsp. sugar
Prepare groundhog by removing the small sacs in the back and under the forearm. Soak groundhog overnight in salted water. This will help remove the gamey flavor. Combine flour, salt, pepper, and soda; use as a rub on the groundhog. Brown the groundhog in hot oil in the skillet, and sprinkle with sugar. Reduce heat, add 1 ½ cup water. Cover, simmer for about 30 minutes or until tender. Remove cover; let cook for an additional 10 minutes. (Recipe provided by http://www.ifood.tv/recipe/country_style_groundhog ).

The fact that you are going to shoot something just to kill it, then not honor it enough to eat it Not only is it a douche move, but it is ILLEGAL
Wanton waste is illegal. Is it wasted if you feed it to your pup and use it to grow your garden? Up to interpretation, and even if it was illegal, it would be hard to prove. Shooting and leaving it where it falls is illegal.
I assumed feeding it to your dog or tossing it in th garden was wanton waste. If not my bad on the illegal part. I still stand on the fact that I think if someone is going to kill something they should eat it (except for pests that is)

Folies will soon be appearing in a park holding waterfowl near you.

There is a bounty on Nutria in MD. Should people eat those? They are oversized aquatic rats...
There is no limit to the number of crows I can legally kill during the season. Should I eat those? Crows kill and eat ducklings.
You don't even need a license in the majority of this state to hunt and kill woodchucks. Should I not hunt those? I'm certainly not going to eat them.
Should I not hunt foxes since I don't eat them?
Your reasoning is totally ridiculous, and the fact that you think it's illegal is even crazier.

Pitching them in the brush or a garbage can is wanton waste.
