For those of you who have eaten fallow, what is your opinion?

It's good. I don't like it as much as many other animals. But I wouldn't throw it away. Probably make sausage out of it or hamburger and not steaks. Maybe some jerky or buck sticks.

I shot a 6-7 year old fallow buck last October and all of the ground meat (with 10% suet) was fantastic. In my opinion, it was a tad better than the Sika, Blackbuck, Whitetail, and Axis in my freezer.

I put just about the same as Sika, maybe just a tad behind, but better than Whitetail. I do think that it's close enough to Sika that slight differences in diet will affect the ranking.


for every stereotype there's a prototype

Good. No axis. Equal to Blackbuck and Sika and WT on my scale.

Of course, taste depends alot on diet. Corn fed fallow is GREAT. But other stuff is better.

IT'S GOOD.
SHOOT IT.
EAT IT.
BE HAPPY IN YOUR LIFE.

I think it's a cross between venison and beef. I have killed two and both ate VERY good....steaks, burger, sausage didn't matter.

Amen. Comparable in taste to Texas whitetail but tougher. Beats blackbuck but Axis is much better.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

I have tasted best and worst fallow deer meat.
Diet, age and care of the meat are the main factors. argue

My family likes Fallow the best. We hunt A LOT and have had many different meats. We don't turn our nose up at other meat, but would hunt Fallow before others if given the chance

IN MY OPINION FALLOW MEAT COMES AFTER AXIS.
HOWEVER AGE AND FOOD PLAY IMPORTANT ROLE.!!1

Last one I shot I let the meat drain over ice for 1.5 days and it was the bomb! I may like it a touch above axis...
