venison-buck vs doe
« on: December 24, 2015, 01:49:00 PM »
Last year I got two bucks.  The early buck had a very strong gamey taste.  Had to be heavily seasoned. The second buck was much better.  This year I got two late season does. First taste was far better than either of last years bucks.  I have never noticed such a difference before.  Are does in general better than bucks? Does it depend on time of year or how the meat is cleaned/processed?  What affects flavor?

I have always found doe to be better eating. Bucks killed during the rut leave much to be desired at the table; I guess it is the hormones that are all fired up.
