Something exotic to cook. (Not impossible to get, please be realistic)

I want something that I can cook WHOLE that I can get within 5 hours of South Carolina. Yak, buffalo, elk etc. I am having a hard time finding suppliers. If it won't make someone go "WOW!" skip it.

Please exclude: Boar, llama, emu Been there done that.

      I like it. I'm having trouble getting on sourced .

    2. I immediately thought of Effie cooking a whole octopus for Sid, in the comic Piranha Club.

      1. To me a duck would be exotic. Or partridge. Or guinea fowl.

              How about goose? Although geese are not very "exotic", I don't see people do them nearly as often as ducks.

          2. Florida invasive Burmese python?

            I'd look here:

            And do the Hawkins in TR still raise beefalo off of Keeler Mill Rd and Manley or Old White Horse & Settlement Rd?
            THAT would be an impressive thing on a spit.
            Go to google maps at:
            62 Settlement Road, Travelers Rest, United States Select Street View, then "look Left."
