there's a place in florida that sells (oddly) norwegian stuff. a reindeer leg on a stand is a specialty. i'm thinking of ordering one for chrismas.
I know it's hypocritical when I cheerfully scoff cows, sheep and pigs, but I balk at the thought of eating Rudolph.

Interesting, I have had moose more times than any other game, and I found it to be the best game meat I ever had. Loved it.

I watch all the shows about Alaska.
Moose is considered the "meat" to many of the natives.
Heard one native say he preferred moose to beef.

I have eaten wild game before and I am not very fond of it.
I would for sure try it again if i had the opportunity.

Cheek and lip meat is the best. As with any game if you do not like gamy smell and taste you are not going to like it, but that is when strong herbs come in.

If the carcass is gutted quickly after being shot and the meat is handled carefully, I don't find a "gamey" taste. I have eaten moose, deer, caribou, bear, partridge, snowshoe hare.

Have eaten all of those, except Partridge. What is it?

Scratch that. Just looked up on Wiki. I have eaten that too. I love all the game. Bear is a special treat.

Oops, I didn't mean partridge, I meant grouse (another game bird). I forgot porcupine. That's similar to bear. They are the exception to "gut immediately". You want to wait about 1/2 an hour with porcupine. The quills keep moving for that long and you really don't want to get quilled.

Yeap, had that too, actually grouse is consider delicacy. Porcupine and squirrel, and turtle make good soups. If you take baby porcupine, no worries about the quills.
