Had to look those deer up, neat looking animal, would love to try it.Wel I like wild game of any type fit for eating, I think though my favorite of all is a lil exotic we have here in Texas. Axis Deer, I think it tastes better than whitetail or mule deer and seems at least to me to have a better texture as well as being a little more forgiving of over cooking. I like thick Axis steaks as well as Axis chili!!
Sh*t, I knew I forgot some of the popular big game, a friend of mine just (Dec.) brought back a nice buffalo from Pink Mtn. , off the highway that leads to you Mooseman. I love bison/buffalo meat but I don't hunt for it so it slipped my mind. Dall sheep too, man what a brain fart.Well, since you didnt list Dall sheep or Buffalo, Has to be Moose.
As far as Gamey goes Most hunters do not hang and age the Meat. It will always be gamey if the Meat is fresh killed and butchered or if the Animal is running and scared when shot due to the adrenaline in the meat...I hang My Moose for a Month, letting it mold all over the outside,The enzymes have to go thru the meat, when trimmed and cut , it will be moist, tender ,Juicy, and have No gamey flavor...Prime as real aged beef, which if you never experienced Real Aged beef, you don't know what you are missing.Mold on Meat outside does Not hurt a thing, It gets trimmed during butchering, like cutting off a rind...
