Question about venison?



I have always believed that a deer dropped where is was shot will taste better than a deer that runs after being shot. I am not talking about 20-30 yards and falling dead but having to track it. Am I crazy or do others think that as well?

Both taste the same to me, Ive dropped them in their tracks and ran them for miles with a dog, same wonderful goodness to me.

There are many things that affect the quality of the meat in the animal you choose to take. But yes, generally, an animal that is very stressed prior to being killed is going to be less tasty.

Honestly though, depending on how you cook it, you probably won't even be able to tell the difference.

Back in the day I noticed that deer run by dogs had very red meat. And yes, they tasted stronger. Maybe lactic acid build up?

I did not want to mention deer killed while running dogs so as to avoid conflict.

Conflict is good. It makes great threads and it always elicits responses from me and Alx.

re: Question about venison?


I guess I could have asked why deer killed still hunting taste better, but that would have been a 5 page thread.
