I have hunted all over the world and the best meat I have eaten is Scimitar Horned Oryx bar non. What do you think?

I love Axis and Scimitar Oryx as well but my favorite is Eland. Nilgai is very good too! Baker

Like all the ones named so far but my favorite game meat is from smaller game Rabbit. Of the exotic animals Axis, Eland and Nilgai all rank real high IMO.

Best medium and large native game I have had, elk and pronghorn that were killed in or very near alfalfa fields and moose

I love axis and very much enjoyed scimitar horned oryx, but the best (IMO) by far is caribou. I have heard forest caribou is not so good, but I took a barren ground caribou near Dead Horse and AMAZING would be a great understatement

Agree with Kmon1 small game like cottontails are the best. All I hunted when young. I think squirrel is better then rabbit. Upland birds though are the best. Big game wise elk and moose are the best I have had. Sandhill crane is great and I like venison. Feral hog is good. I need to try some of the exotics. Waiting on the right hunt.

I shot an oryx in January and that meat has been outstanding! I love Elk, Red Stag and moose as well.

Axis over white tail. Love almost all of the African plains game but I will go with the cape buffalo.

Squirrel, ruffed grouse, sand hill crane and then whitetail. Of course any animal that is hand fed grain/protein is going to taste closer to beef than low fence/free range/non human fed of the same species.

If we are adding birds then sand hill crane is the rib eye in the sky.

All the African antelope are top notch. You're not going to beat eland though.

Unless you have access to pere David.

I agree with okie hunter. Moose is the best I have had. Bison is a close second. Elk, eland, oryx, and axis are all great.

Oryx, gemsbok, axis are always great. But my daughter shot a free range black buck that I do not know what he ate, but he was amazing good.

I've got one more black buck roast in the fridge and it has to be the best game animal I have cooked so far. Pronghorn antelope and wild boar are also favorites, but that black buck has been delicious.

And blackbuck. While blackbuck is better than pronghorn, if one thinks either is top notch, it's either numb taste buds or non comparative preparation.

Like a lot of animals diet has a lot to do with how they will taste. Pronghorn that I killed in grain fields near alfalfa fields were fantastic. Where they only had native grass and sage brush not a good. Same with elk.

Have had some blackbuck that was excellent and some the dog would not eat.

As far as preparation, I did the field care, processing and cooking on all of them so know the preparation was not the issue.

I am "numb" in the taste bud department But willing to try most anything.

50% blackbuck/50% pork is ok for tomato based sauces, but outside of that, I am not a fan of it at all.
