I assume anything from a carnivore, especially an apex predator, would be pretty disgusting.
eland was amazing. haven't had the bad one yet.....though still have a few to try
In Namibia, they use the Hartmann's zebra meat as if it's veal....making weinerschnitzel, etc. out of it. It's ok, but not the best imho. lol I think it's a matter of using what they have at hand, in lieu of the real McCoy.
That said, we should honor the fact that they gave up their HUGE beef farms in favor of hunting! We can eat beef once we return home from safari....
I thought the very same (as an American aficionado of BBQ-just had it tonight!)....we must impart our wisdom when in camp! Slow cooking can make any meat taste good. Some are cooked for 12 hrs or more with the proper seasoning!
'Would love to try BBQ buffalo ribs and brisket!
I have never just loved deer meat. I eat it if I kill it, but have to get inventive sometimes to get it all eaten. That said, I enjoyed everything I ate on my first trip to Africa. Had Kudu and Zebra several ways and Springbok, Gemsbok and several others. It was all great. And not just good for game meat. I would order off any menu. May just be because Never was an excellent chef though, have to go back and compare soon.
I have been told by several people who have tried it that Mountain Lion is excellent. But I tried Coyote a couple different ways on a dare once and it sucks, even as spiced up, Chile covered jerky.
Best I had was my Cape buffalo. Second best was Oryx. Also, I was very impressed with the Damara Dik Dik.
Least favorite was lion. The longer the uneaten part sat next to me, the more the smell was putting me off until I had the waitress take it away. I think anything that eats rotten meat should be avoided.
Mountain loin is very good
I would never be able to eat organs like liver and heart. Not my thing at all. Like when I tried heart once, it just tasted like congealed blood. Yuck!
You obviously haven't had the deer where I hunt. Corn and soya fattened and apple sweetened, they don't even taste like real deer. Farmers hate them
Giraffe tongue is excellent!
No doubt. I am a cattle rancher and know what you feed them makes the beef. Our deer live on acorns and browse, not much agriculture in our area.
and they are what they eat. acorns are damned bitter
with a good african red wine every thing taste great.
and a few glasses of Mothers Milk will make anything taste good.
I highly recommend a ZLT, where the tomatoes are fresh and ripe and the zebra is rare and sizzling. Zebra is great, but honestly I loved all the plains game.
Worst was lion my hosts had from nuisance previously taken on their place. Not impressed at all.
Definitely haven't tasted all African game (very far from!); but everything Claudius and the rest of the PawPrint-team served was delicious!
side note, cat tastes and smells really bad
My outfitters brother always threatened to feed me lion. Luckily I managed to avoid it
