During the recent muskrat camp outside Burwash Landing (at Lake Creek territorial campground) students got to meet trappers.
Ryan Sealy of Environment Yukon’s Trapper Education program obtained a lynx from a trapper in Pelly Crossing Yukon. Students saw how the fur is used and also the meat. It turns out lynx is edible — Sealy even calls it a “family favorite.”
The meat was cut into little cubes so that everyone would have a piece. I would describe it as tasting just like chicken if slightly chewier.
