I’ve heard frog legs aren’t too bad if they’re fried up right, but how’s eating a whole bullfrog sound?

the Utah Department of Natural Resources is encouraging Utah residents to catch as many bullfrogs as they want.

“And bonus: they’re tasty,” the department said in a tweet last week. Yes, bullfrogs can be slimy, but they apparently also make a pretty good meal.

According to a report by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR), breeding populations of bullfrogs have been present in the state since at least the 1970s. They are considered invasive and can cause the decline of native species. For this reason, in Utah there is no limit on how many bullfrogs you can hunt, with no license necessary.

If you’re craving amphibian after all that, you’ll be happy to learn that there’s also year-round no-limit hunting for bullfrogs in Colorado.

According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), bullfrogs are also considered invasive in the state and have taken over some areas that were previously occupied by the native leopard frog.

“Bullfrogs may be taken by anyone in possession of a valid Colorado fishing license by means of fishing, archery, by hand, the use of gigs, and nets,” CPW reports.
