Gaminess is funny though, since I've had people tell me hanging a deer will INCREASE gaminess, and othes say NOT hanging it do the same. :?
I've heard a 101 ways to get rid of gamey taste in venison...but I've yet to find one gamey to begin with!!!
I'm sure there is someone else who would find the same deer to be "gamey." (It is a game animal, after all)
Or maybe people haven't considered the age, gender, or diet of the particular deer and assumed it was their prep method that affected the taste???
I know the plump doe and button buck my husband brought me the last two whitetail seasons were very tasty animals.
I wouldn't expect a trophy buck with a giant rack to be quite as tender...
I think rabbits killed by CD have less toughness, and less off flavors, then rabbits that were bashed in the head, - but a good friend who has a lot of experience also-- disagrees with me...
