Duck Whisperer wrote:Another side of the "gamey taste", I believe, is the fact that a large number of "hunters" have no clue how to care for their game or fish once harvested. That "bad" flavor a lot of times is because of how the animal was stored before processing, how it was processed, aged and/or soaked, etc, etc.
That, and lets face it, most guys are not cooks at all, other than weekend grillers. Give a bad cook a not so easy piece of meat (game/fish) to cook and it's no wonder so many peolpe don't like to eat wild game.

I'll eat what I kill no doubt, but I limit myself what I shoot, give some to friends or to the dog. I've heard soaking in milk/buttermilk helps, so I'm trying that this year. My idea is to acquire the taste through time so that one day I don't have to really soak anything out of it?
Like Okie said, after eating deer meat forever, beef tastes a little bit awful. The great thing about eating wild game is the health factor you're getting...no steroids, all-natural and if you don't add too much unhealthy product to it when you cook, you are getting the best quality meat your body needs.

Serve it rare and you'll be amazed at the incredible taste. Just cook the duck in a little olive oil and serve rare. Guaranteed, everyone will rave over it.
