My brother is wanting me to go in half on a couple of old sheep and I'm wondering what I would do with the meat. They must be on their last leg or the guy just want's to get rid of them since he's selling them both for $75.

If you've canned any before how did it come out? I'm not a great fan of lamb but I can eat it if it's put on the table.

How are you gonna get them into the cans? They probably won't want to go...

Sorry-couldn't help it. Unfortunately, we've never deal with sheep for meat.

Once it is cooked up, you could probably can half of it and freeze the other half ....

I vote for freezing. Sheep is a tough meat to begin with, and the processing would make it even tougher. My stepmom made spaghetti sauce with sliced sausage once and the sausage was so tough it was like a rock.

Probably in Quebec. But not here in Toronto. It's very hard to find duck unless you own a restaurant or you shop in chinatown. People in this city don't eat much duck.

I too have heard that canned meats can taste better. I've eaten cannd fois grois and I can say it ain't bad. Canned foie would be very popular in quebec.

I always feel bad when I'm at the gun store and people talk about blasting ducks for fun and then don't do anything with the dead ducks. People can eat them. I don't like that kind of wastefulness.

We hunt ducks a lot. My wife and father in law are at Pymatuning Lake in NWPA as we speak for just that purpose and I will be joining them this weekend after work.

We only shoot close ducks that we have a chance to recover; we don't "sky bust" or take the Hail Mary shots. We eat all the ducks that we kill. It's quite tasty if you cook it right.
