Yes, and when I serve spotted owl to my dinner guests, I always precede with an hor d'ourve plate of deep-fried snail darters.
[In case you didn't know, snail darters are tiny little minnow-like fishies that are protected by the federal endangered species law as well. A huge dam construction project was halted (I forget where) because a few snail darters lived in the waters below.]

It was on the Little Tennessee river in the late 70's. As a native, wish the darter had won that one. Lots of folks thrown off their ancestral land and a perfectly good river was turned into a worthless dam.
TVA is a prime example of how a Federal bureaucracy acheives a state of being beyond it's design.
You had to be there to understand. Knoxville had eight or nine wonderful lakes within 30 minutes drive and two in the city limits.

alligator tail (fresh road kill, hell I'm from Georgia)
You cook it and I'll eat it at least once after I see you do so
I need to kill some pigeons. Ain't tried any feathered rats.
I've been thinking about some armadilloes. Heard you can catch leprosy though.
I've got some beaver recipes, been thinking about that.

I'm late in replying to this, but I've been at the farm being sure my deer are fat for this upcoming rifle opener.
Cubed deer meat (southerners don't say, "venison" ) marinated in Italian dressing, lightly dusted with flour, salt and peppered to taste, fried in butter, until the juices turn a light pink--then pull it. Serve it up with some mashed taters, gravy, cathead biscuits, and sweet tea.
That's my favorite meal...
I didn't see anyone add fish meat to their list so here's mine, in order from favorite to least favorite.
Catfish (frying size - about a pound a piece)
Crappie NOT "crop"pie ;o)
I've tried shark, snapper, grouper, sea bass, sea trout, flounder, cod, and a variety of others, but not enough to reach a conclusion on...
Chicken..... my favorite so far.
I need to broaden my horizons on our feathered friends.
By the way, y'all can have my share of the "Menudo" of both varieties!

Venison backstrap filets cooked rare on a charcoal grill, sprinkled with some kosher salt.
Venison here in the midwest is basically "farm raised", since their diets consist of high protein soybeans, alfalfa, and yellow field corn. Supplemented with apples, acorns, and browse, and you have a high protein very lean piece of red meat. Cannot be beat.
