    Default antelope butt taste

    Hello, I have an antelope rump roast and I put it in a crock pot
    mostly cut up, with BBQ sauce, for BBQ antelope. It
    still tastes kind of gamy. Which is to be expected. Does anybody have
    tricks to reduce the wild tastes in
    wild game. thanks

    I know that with fowl it depends a lot on what they ate. Pheasants
    around here eat mostly grain from the fields. They have virtually no
    "wild" taste. Ducks can be muddy or fishy unless they've been eating
    really nice wild water plants.

    If deer are grain fed (some farmers and ranchers do feed them,
    especially in lean years) they will be very nice. Especially if they
    are does and quite young. Those big bucks with their wide racks
    (antlers) can be tough as nails. My dad used to keep only the
    tenderloins whole and have the rest made into summer sausage (with
    pork). If the deer was younger, he might have some made into jerky.
    I've eaten my share of ground venison too.

    Antelope marinated and grilled slowly on a rotisserie can be
    wonderful. Moose tastes like elk to me - just a little different than
    deer or antelope. If you're not Jewish, you can try soaking the
    antelope in milk. (Although what you're doing with a dead antelope if
    you are Jewish would be a story in itself.)

    I've only eaten bear once. It was very highly seasoned in a kind of
    barbecue/chili/beans dish. The meat itself was kind of sweet - maybe
    the bear ate a lot of berries or fruit. If bears eat salmon do they
    taste fishy?

    Some people also recommend a milk soak.

    Garlic works for me.

    two days.

    And that's impressive, when we're talking sharkskin.

    Unless you have a cow, that's a lot of milk to use. I had 6 ducks :-)

    Works for me too....... especially whole roasted heads, squeezed out and
    spread over a pizza base :-)

    If we are not meant to eat animals,
    why are they made of meat?

    I like the gamey taste of duck myself, but I'm sure there are feeding,
    migrating conditions where I would not.

    We do that with pheasant, soak it in salt water in the fridge but not
    for longer than abound 16 hours.

    I found garlic does work well for most, but certain meats, the cuts,
    combinations of ground meat, ingredients used, I feel it works
    against it.

    I used garlic in this initially and it worked pretty well with the
    meat, some of the meat had a lot of fat and it didn't make much
    difference as those parts were pretty strong.

    Anyway I put carrots, potatoes and onion and right towards the end
    more onion cabbage. The meat tastes great and is tender as it gets and
    the rest turned out great.

    I didn't know sharks could breathe in milk.
