Dude, man's fucked up the planet so much that nothing is entirely safe. In the early 90's I remember seeing "edgy" rednecks with the bumpersticker "I can remember when sex was safe and racing was dangerous".After much work to separate the meat from sinew and bone I marinated in achiote oil, cumin, garlic, onion, malt vinegar, and Cuban oregano for about a day.. Then pan fried . Shit was bomb.. But now...I'll be wary about the possibility of not so delicious outcomes.
In AL and East TN, whitetail deer have lesions and growths(think like a furry skin tag that can get as big as your fist, avg size your big toe). The state dept of fish and game both put out releases saying "It's safe to eat." It's not something I'd eat.
I don't hunt and don't have any opinions on hunting but I think unless mankind changes its ways in regards to how it interfaces with Nature/Earth, then man is, to be crude- fucked. And deservedly so in my asshole opinion.
