I have no problems with pictures. I grew up on a diary farm where we raised all kinds of animals for food. Some of my fondest memories as a child were going with my grandfather when he chopped the heads off a couple of chickens for Sunday dinner. Fun stuff for a farm kid! The smell when grandma poured boiling water over the chicken feathers.... no so much! There always seemed to be some animal hanging by its ankles in the cold slaughter room. So, while those are my memories, I'm still grateful there's "Safeway"!

I prefer my steaks well-marbled.

I've eaten venison, moose, beefalo ( cross animal ), eland, impala and wildebeest. A lot has to do with the cook, but I only enjoyed eland filet and gnu liver ( of all things for a kid to like ).

Years ago there was a place here in NH that had a wild game night, I believe it was once a month.
I've had some very exotic game meat, one that I didn't want to try but did was kangaroo. It was a lot better than I imagined and glad I tried it. Others were alligator and muskox.

For me venison is hands down the ultimate game meat!

I used to go to these here in AB too, but haven't been in 10 years. A great way to sample lots of wild game, all of which is cooked up great. I even ate rodent, and quite liked it, beaver it was.

I watched this survival type show once where they ate porcupine and they all liked it, although the work involved in skinning such an animal is a major chore.

Well, I didn't get my wild meat in a fancy restaurant.
I ran back to the Land Rover, got more shells and handed them to the hunter who got increasingly angry as he pumped one after the other into the wildebeest's forehead from ten feet away and it still wouldn't go down. I didn't know the bullets were that expensive . Finally an African ran up and slit its throat with a panga ( machete ). Had the liver for breakfast next morning.
