So far for me i've had:

Whitetail
Moose
Elk
Bear-7 good 3 bad tasting
Squirrel
Wabbit
Phesent
Woodcock
Grouse
Duck
Goose
And some others i'm probably forgetting. Confused Smile

I like them all except for goose (just couldn't aquire a taste fo it), and i have had 7 different African game meats that an old customer of mine gave to me to try (which were great!), but with no labels and him passing on, i didn't get a chance to find out. Sad

Mule Deer: Good
Elk: Really good!

Woops! Almost forgot the Wabbit. Tastes like chicken, and I don't like chicken much, except my mom's fried chicken or the Colonel's. ( You think I got enough "chicken" in that sentence? Smile

Cutthroat/Brown/Lake trout-very good

Rattlesnake- okay

Really didn't think about fish.
Fresh trout; brookies, rainbow, any, cooked at the camp site--anyway you can, the best I agree.
largemouth bass--ok
panfish--pretty good

whitetail deer: SD white tails are better than the PA. deer.
Mule Deer still better than PA. deer
Antelope very good
(fox) squirrel: great
PA, CT, NY, gray squirrel: pretty good
rabbit-cotton tail: great
Ruffed Grouse OK
Woodcock OK
Pheasants Great
raccoon better be a small one
wild Boar good
duck: great
goose: pretty good

My only qualifier is they are all good when prepared the right way, and field preparation is very important. Getting the heat out of the birds or animals seems to make the biggest difference.

When you’re really, really, really hungry almost anything tastes good... Shocked

Here are some I’ve had in the past:
Elk
Black Bear
Wild boar
Whitetail deer
Fallow deer
Goat (tame, young)
Buffalo
Reindeer (Alaska)
Moose (Alaska)
Big horn sheep
Corsica sheep
Fresh water turtle (soft shell & snapper)
Alligator (tail)
Rattlesnake
Beaver
Groundhog
Cottontail rabbit
Squirrel (gray & fox)
Wild turkey
Ostridge (Ostrich)
Ringneck pheasant
Grouse
Bobwhite quail
Dove
Wilson snipe
Mallard duck
Canadian goose
Possum
Mountain oysters (not really considered prime meat but can be quite delicious and no… they don‘t taste like chicken). Laughing


I agree with longwalker, preparation is a key factor as is age of the animal.

Don't forget that shot placement has a lot to do with taste. I have had deer and elk (at a friends or neighbors house for dinner) that were gut shot or limb shot and ran for quite a while before they were put down for good. The meat was some of the most godawful stuff I have ever had.

Also, antelope that has gotten hair on the meat and contaminated it with the lanolin from the hide. Nothing like meat that tastes like hand lotion.

Mentioning cooling out, my sister works at the locker plant in Dubois Wyoming. She had a guy bring two deer in that they slung over the hood of the car for the hour an a half drive to the plant. They got about 15 pounds of meat out of each deer because the rest had soured from the heat of the engine. If the temperature is over 65 I take along a cooler full of ice, dry or cubed. If you have a long way to go to get home, it sure helps to cool down the body cavity.

blacktails
whitetails
muleys
elk
moose
feral hogs
ducks
geese
quail
pheasants
dove
grouse
All are excellent, depending on what they've been eating, how the meat was taken care of and method of cooking.


As for adrenaline charged game.....

Here in Georgia, shooting deer that have been chased out of the thick stuff with hounds is legal and common. Weapon of choice is a shotgun with buckshot.
I participated once a long time ago (was invited) and didn't shoot. I was given a hind quarter off a doe that day.

Absolutely the foulest, worst tasting meat I've ever tried to eat.
Never again,
Sako

Most game properly shot and prepared has been excellent. EXCEPT for Javelina.

Now, there are those that believe Javelina is good stuff and anxiously await their next hunt. These are usually those that would prefer Kerry for President and higher taxes. They often drive Hondas while using their cell phones and wear their baseball caps backwards. Javelina, indeed!

Vermin pie does it for me! One rabbit, two pairs of squirrel legs and four pigeon breasts (all deboned) simmered together in vegetable stock until tender. Drain meat and place in shortcrust pie bottom. Cover with puff pastry and cook for half an hour @ 400f. or until pie browns. Mix gelatin in with a cup of leftover stock, make a hole in the middle of pie and pour in when pie has cooled. Place pie in fridge and eat cold. Go shoot more vermin.......:)
