'wild food' from your neck of the woods?

What's something you've eaten that's a local wild favourite?
Picked, hunted, trapped or...bonus points for things that I might never have seen, let alone tried!
Here in New Zealand, muttonbird or titi; the unfledged young of an endemic seabird, are hauled from their burrows, plucked, salted and packed in buckets.
They are extremely fatty, but the really challenging thing about them is because of their 100% seafood diet, they taste kind of like a ducky anchovy.
Either a delicacy or an abomination, depending on your taste!
Apparently my taste runs to anchovy flavoured greasy birds...
