kangaroo

I have a nice pair of kangaroo leather boots. Very durable and comfortable.

Not many kangaroos in Kansas so I don't hunt them, but the boots are nice.

When I hunted Kangaroo in Australia they had a lot of kangaroo jerky. Other than that, our guide said it was an acquired taste. In fact he used the bad meat to feeed his dogs and we donated the rest to the aboriginis.

Kangaroo gained it's name from the early white settlers on the east coast. Upon seeing the strange animals hopping about, one of the First Fleet biologists determined to find out what the locals called them. After much gesticulating and mime, he determined the locals were saying "kan ghu rhu" which transates as: "I don't understand you." The name stuck!

Roo meat is very palatable indeed with a rich, gamey taste that some find too strong. However, the greatest problem with roo is that, because the meat contains no marbling or striated fat, it dries out with any but the most cursory exposure to cooking heat. When cooked rapidly with say, a plum sauce marinade, it is absolutely delicious.

More and more Australians are coming to recognise this valuable source of meat and the market is growing accordingly.

It is absolutely forbidden to kill this mammal in the wild. The only way to hunt the roo is to get a pastoral shooting permit, which requires the shooter to be in the direct employ of the landowner, who must apply for a special circumstances waiver if the roos are endangering his crops etc.

Needless to say there is a great deal of illegal roo shooting carried out right across the bottom two thirds of Australia. Shame on You!

CVC, You must be referring to Harold Boots, who are as far as I know the only manufacturers of roo boots.

The leather is, as you say, very durable and offers a level of softness unreachable by other leathers.
