It's good. It tastes like red meat.

I have no idea. I had it in a resto. In Quebec only farmed game can be sold.

If you order reindeer, be sure to get gjetost and lingonberries so you can add those to your gravy. I imagine you can get those closer to home.

Haven't had caribou, but have had its close relative, elk, many times. For a long time there was a ranch just south of us where we would buy it. Sadly, last year they had to put down the entire herd because of brain wasting disease. It took the wind out of the owner's sails, and he never resurrected the business again.

How sad.

Had it years ago along with some moose a friend brought back from a hunting trip in Alaska.

I found it much like White Tail with a slightly different flavor. Much better then the moose which I thought was much more of a greasy meat.

Now since December is nearing you'd best stay away from Rudolph. He knows the way to my chimney and I don't trust that old fat man in the red suit to find it.

But if you do bag the red nosed fellow I suggest you fix him this way.
