September geese?

Postby eGrant51 » Thu Jun 02, 2011 7:04 am

I have been hunting ducks and geese for a long time and have always enjoied eating them. I can not however find a way to cook an early season goose. They seem to have been living off of pond snails and manure spreadings and are rank. I can shoot them in Jan. and they are fine, but the early season birds and terrible. I made jerky and ended up feeding it to the dog. can anyone help?

marinade them for days

buttermilk em

or brine them

best way to get that flavor out.

and i prefer soy sauce or a strong marinade for early season birds and divers, tend to mask the flavors quite well
