I don't know if you have a hankering for exotic protein but it can certainly be found in the form of frogs legs which is what Field& Stream editor in chief Colin Kearns has up his sleeve in the form of two frog hunters who have been named the Frog Kings.

These two longtime buddies who live in upstate New York are both longtime hunters and fishermen. They've got these cabins next to each other on this river in upstate New York. New York made it legal for outdoorsman to start hunting and gigging frogs in the evening. So they went out one night and frog hunted... just did really really well and had the time of their lives and they just became addicted to it. They've got some really interesting techniques on how they hunt frogs. They do use gigs for some but their preferred method is to grab them by hand because that allows them to make sure they only get the meatiest and biggest frogs that are on the river. They're on the river from 10:00 in the evening till about 2:00-3:00 in the morning and then when they get home they'll sleep for a couple hours and then they start processing all the legs, butchering them and skinning them. They're not satisfied if they don't take one hundred frogs every evening. So they've got a lot of work for them waiting but they love cooking these legs. They bring them to parties and they've even got a recipe for frog legs for breakfast: breakfast of champions, and deep fry them in pancake batter and serve them with maple syrup. So breakfast of champions probably with no fat and no cholesterol.
