Depends on what that deer has been eating. Deer around my old home town taste harsh...they eat primarily sagebrush...those from the mountains are much better tasting.

You make a good point. Porcupine is really delicious, but if they have been eating a lot of pine or other conifers, just don't bother with the liver.

Okay, you might like it if you like spruce beer.

If we ever did dinner together, there would be absolutely nothing on the menu that neither of us liked. I can't tolerate any of those.

For me it is shellfish. I can eat (and do a lot) prawns, shrimp and scallops. However please don't even let me see or smell oysters, mussels, snails (even when they are called escargot ) or sardines (okay, not a shellfish). My gag reflex goes into high gear on all these. Eggs if not flavoured or covered in some way are the same, and PLLLLLEEEEEAAASE don't make them the least bit runny.

I think the only other yuck food for me is liver. My Mom loved liver and onions and I went through boarding school eating KD made in a little open kettle in my room every Wed because it was liver night and I couldn't stand even being in the dining room!

I reckon my upbringing has only taught me one thing as far as food goes. I am top of the food chain..... Means I eat ever'thing. Now I understand about overcooked food. It can be a less than pleasant experience. But for the most part there ain't anything that grows, walks, crawls or flies that I don't like to eat. I suppose I am in the minority here. I reckon that either makes me blessed or just a fool. Either way..... I don't go hungry.

Can't stand khaki coloured peas. Couldn't stand them even as kid. I love raw peas and am happy with lightly cooked peas.

Haven't had any type of meat that I didn't like if cooked properly. Really dislike overcooked liver.

Don't like a lot of sweet added to vegis: carrots with sweet glaze, sweet potatoes with sweet anything, etc. Can't handle ham with sugary glazes. In fact, when I'm having supper, leave out the sweeteners. Unsweetened applesauce is okay with pork. A small amount of homemade (not green) mint jelly is okay with lamb. Small amounts of chutneys that are hot can be pretty good. No sugar in the barbecue sauce, please.

Oh yeah, cooked salmon makes me gag. Raw, smoked, gravad, or as sushi are fine.
