I've only had elk, axis and bison and they are all really good. My personal favorite is axis.


I took the road less traveled

Of these I have only taken Elk and Nilgai and the Nilgai was quite a bit better.

The oryx I shot was some of the best tasting I've had, REALLY curious how it compares with the Gemsbok I hope to harvest soon.. I have delt with/ate a lot of Hybrids/purebred and full bloods and there IS a difference.

Nilgai, in my opinion, is the best meat of any animal. If interested in a Nilgai Hunt in South Texas, I can recommend an incredible place.

I cut all my own meat. Pull the back straps and the tenderloins. Separate the bigger muscles of the hind legs into roasts and grind the rest. If I want steaks or stew I break down a roast as needed. Cutting meat is easy when you get a little experience. I haven't ever paid anyone to do it since my father and grandfather taught me how to do it. I've got my own grinder for burger and sausage and vacuum pack everything. I can do a whole deer in less than 2 hrs including the grinding and have it in the freezer.

Shot an oryx last year and the steaks, jerky and sausage were unbelievably great. Was just wondering about other options...
