Do you eat bison or other wild game?

We just recently switched from beef to bison because of the MUCH lower fat content, and we absolutely love the flavor. I'm making a bison roast in the crock pot, and it smells awesome. However, when I tried venison, I couldn't stand the taste of it. My son likes elk, though I've never tried it. What wild game do you eat?

  • I like elk. Bison isn't really wild game anymore though. They are not raised on farms so the meat can be sold in store. I love Bison, it makes a great chili, and probably the best burger I've ever had. I like venison,pheasant, and rabbit too.

  • I really like bison. I also like Elk steaks and we make jerky out of antelope....antelope isnt really good for anything else besides jerk IMO because its way too gamey and tastes like sagebrush.

  • We hunt and get our own meat. We eat deer, rabbit, squirrel, and turtle.

  • Elk and moose are pretty good. My dad used to hunt them all the time back in Idaho and we would have it for DAYSSS. Lol, i'm not much of a meat eater now. I go from being a flexitarian one day back to being a vegetarian another.

  • I like bison and venison. The grass fed beef is similar as well, because it isn't corn fed it has a more natural taste, which to some people is a gamey taste. I like the taste of venison personally, but if you use ground venison in seasoned taco meat, chili, sloppy joes, etc, it covers that gamey flavor quite a bit.

  • I'm not fond of bison, to be honest... My fiance is forever bringing home "game" meats, and frankly, I don't care for any of them, heh. And the worst thing I have EVER tasted was an elk sausage, yuck!

  • Nobody around here sells bison so we still eat beef, but we also eat deer a lot. My husband is going rabbit hunting soon so we will have rabbit meat too. :)

  • I have tried bison and really didn't like it. Venison is ok.

  • I've never had Bison, because I've never had the opportunity... But I have and enjoy venison, squirrel and some others.
