    I've been seeing a lot of deer at work lately. It must have been a good year for them. They come down from the hills and browse on the expensive landscaping.
    Lately as I go to the parking lot after work, I see two or three does. I like to stop and watch them a while. No one else seems to find them of much interest, but I sure enjoy seeing them.
    Even if they do make me really hungry [​IMG]

    elk is pretty ok.
    I can't stand (and don't eat) deer, or antelope. Moose and caribou are pretty much not cool. Sheep is good, mountain goat we won't even discuss that experience (it was OK in stew but it still took some chewing to get down)
    we used to donate antelope and make all the deer into jerky.

    Hey, that is cool!
    I've had venison, buffalo, wild pig, elk, caribou, moose, and various antelope (but not pronghorn) and have enjoyed them all. I love quail too. I just wish southern California wasn't such a terrible a place to try to hunt in. (Or I wish I could get a permit at work [​IMG] )

    Speaking of cats, has anyone ever eaten Mountain Lion?
    My friend hunts Mountain Lions and everything else in Montana. One day I was at his house and he asked me if I wanted an Elk Burger, I said sure.
    So I ate it, and thought it didn't taste like Elk at all, so I told him it tastes a little different, he say's I spiced it up a little.
    He didn't tell me until I ate the whole burger that it was a Mountain Lion Burger! That SOB!
    It sounds gross but it really wasn't bad.

    Personally I find the taste of deer to be slightly gamey. The few times that my in-laws have given us some (they hunt up in Montana) we have to hide the meat in a sauce of some kind because it tastes so wild. Even then I don't eat very much of it. I've had deer jerky though and I love that.
    I like duck. I'm allergic to rabbit (break out in itchy hives), but love the way it tastes. I've never had any of the other game meats though. Anybody ever tried dog? Mmmm. Yummy! I've heard that black dog is the best (yes the color of the fur makes a difference). The time I've tried it though it wasn't black. More of a black and white mix.

    I see tons of deer, whether hiking or biking. The weirdest deer are those that are in Harriman State Park in upstate NY. They don't bother to even run when they see you as there's no hunting there and they aren't conditioned to fear us. I always see a deer or two (whitetails) when I ride my bike through there, or of course, out hiking.
    I even see deer when I bike to the other plant. There's a golf course between the two plants and sometimes in the morning if I have to go to the other plant, I take a short cut through the golf course when nobody's playing (nowadays) and I will runinto packs of 4-10 deer. Strange is that it is pretty developed area with some major highways around, including Route 80.
