Don't wipe with it before you eat it?

Was the meat tken care of after the shot. If it is allowed to get to hot it will spoil the meat. I am sure that you already know this but I thought I would mention it anyways. I posted a recipe for venison backstrap that is awsome. It is located in the other ways to cook backstrap thread. If you don't like this then you might not like venison at all. If yu send me an extra backstrap I will test it for you to make sure that it is edible!!

Like bowhunter said, tenderize it and chichen fry it. It will never like a good ribeye from aged beef. If it was there wouldn't be any deer left to hunt.

If it is too strong for you try soaking it in salt water in the refrigerator. The salt draws out the blood, which is where some of the strong gamy taste comes from.

I do this for ducks and doves. I usually soak them a couple of days. I will change the salt water about twice a day over the two days. You will be surprised how much bloody water you pour out, especially the first couple of times.

crockpot is always good. Soak it in milk before you cook it for about an hour.

You are correct sir , it is way overrated! Chicken fry it or let it marinate in Italian dressing over night and grill it. Ill take beef anyday

You know I read these different posts on how to get this flavor out, do this, do that---it's wild game for heaven sake!!!! It's supposed to have a "different taste" That's just the way it is. Yes, it has the be prepared right--all the way from field dressing right up to the table, and I bet there is only a handfull of guys that can do it right. Even then---whether it's ducks, dove, or deer, I'm looking for that special taste. If I wanted a steak--I would just go buy one at Sams. And just like cattle--if you want good deer meat-shoot a doe. A bull is never great meat. Good luck.

I'm not sure where ya'll get your meat or how you take care of it after you shoot it but I love the taste of deer.

Normally it's shoot, gut, skin, quarter, and on ice within 1 hour of the shot. Drain the water and replace ice until you get to processing it. I've never had to soak my deer in anything after it's processed, except buttermilk and seasoned flour, and thats right before it hits the grease.

There is not much better than a deer roast done right. My brother in law used to say it tasted bad and he never liked it until he tried mine. Now he can hold his own in the kitchen with deer as a main course and many other variations of game.

It's lean, not like pork. If you like lean meat, there is no reason you shouldn't like deer. You just haven't had it prepared right.

Who is processing your deer? If its not processed correctly it will always have a wild taste. I have had very few deer that taste bad. If it has a gamey taste, soak it in cold salt water to bring the bloode out. Try cutting the steaks in chunks put on a tooth pick marinate in italian dressing up to 24 hrs (will tenderize meet) bbq until bacon is done (do not over cook) if this taste bad to you then I would say something is wrong with the meet. I fix it this way and people who dont like vinison eat it just fine. People who dont eat vinison regularly cant tell the difference. Ive never had anyone say this taste bad. Most people dont know what it is. Someone usually has to tell them what it is. I have fun cooking for people who say they dont like it because they are going to get some cooked for them with out them knowing what it is and they eat it just fine.

Agreed..........I cooked fajitas for a bunch of my liberal church members half beef and half venison. The wife told me it was a bad idea. Marinated them both in Italian dressing, cooked them up and sat them out in two seperate dishes. Venison was gone first. It wasn't till after dinner someone was asking for the recipe, and going on and on about the taste that I let the cat out of the bag. No one spewed and everyone was surprised. Some even asked to take some of the venison home.





After eating Payne's sausage I don't know if I can go back to the regular store bought stuff.

Why does everybody say, "the way I cook it is the best" blah blah blah. "you must not clean it right" blah blah blah
I dont know one person that mishandles their animal.

maybe you just dont like it. i have hunted for 40 years and am not that big a fan of deer meat. chicken fried is ok, but it is still deer meat. bring on the beef for me as well.

x2 tasted better when you dont eat the poop. Try some backstrap might taste a little better. On the serious side like TxBowhunter said tenderize the heck out of it and you might try soaking it in milk if it is the gamey taste you dont like.
