Postby bandedgreenies4ever » Mon Dec 15, 2014 12:40 am

Way too difficult for me to pick one. Hossenfeffer, pan-fried turtle, crawdads, grilled bluegills/flatheads, duck/goose schnitzel, venison back-straps...

Ruffed Grouse is the best chicken you will ever taste. I do like Caribou from the tundra. I do enjoy a good moose steak as well (especially from a calf moose)

another one for sandhill crane. But I like mine Sous Vide @135*for 1.5 hours, then pull them out, coat with bacon fat and sear on a blazing hot grill for 45 ~60 seconds per side.

So possum are in good company.

I would have to say muskox is number 1 then fallowed by caribou then moose. All three of they are amazing and if you are able to try any of them out it is a must. Elk is close behind also then I love my ducks rapped in bacon.
2012-2013 duck season 25 ducks
2013-2014 duck season 65 ducks and 2 geese

I've heard mountain lion is the absolute best wild game you will ever have. But i have never personally tried it so i cannot attest to that. I'd have to go with Elk tenderloins, the evening after the hunt.
