In Australia I hunt red deer and fallow deer more than anything and I've eaten almost nothing but them since I was a kid, trust me a good red hind wins hands down every time!
In fact I was just having this conversation with a deer farmer of over 30 years on the weekend and we both agreed on that. Fallow are too inconsistent, I've shot a 9 year old buck that was sensational eating but I've also shot yearling does that tasted terrible. Get yourself a yearling red hind (or any red hind) and the only thing that could beat it would be a chital (axis) or hog deer (so I'm told - haven't harvested one of these yet).

I prefer meat in it's original packaging.
