    What's your most and least favorite cut of wild meat? Fish included.

  • #2
    Most favorite is the inner loin of any ungulate. Least favorite would be any cut from a carcass that was not properly handled or in a timely fashion.

      My wife's favorite cut is wild turkey breast sliced, pounded, rolled in flour and fried in butter. Mine is the inner loin of a whitetail deer rolled in Bass Pro beer batter seasoning and fried in olive oil. My least favorite is any duck or goose.

        Tenderloin.
        Cubed. Fried just until brown.
        Smother with gravy, onions and cubed potatoes.
        Serve over the wife's hot, buttered home made biscuits.

        My dad absolutely LOVED fried buffalo (the fish) ribs!
        I'd rather not have to experience that again!

          Talking fish, my favorite is a mullet gizzard and my least favorite is the strong dark meat along the lateral line. On deer, the inner loin and liver are my favorite while I do not care for the kidneys at all. As far as water fowl, I like all the innards such as the liver, gizzard, and heart and the whole bird around them except for the feet and feathers. I like feral hogs from the rooter to the tooter. From pickled snout, feet and tail to rendered lard and cracklins. From souse to bacon and ham. From neck bones and rice to pulled pork sandwiches. From BBQ ribs to pork roast with taters and carrots. Even the pig intestines make good sausage casing and chitlin's (chitterlings for those of you up north). The bones boil up and make a good stock, then get ground up to make bone meal for feeding fish. Why even fried pork skin is darn good to eat while watching Alabama play football. And last but not least, even the scraps from the skin make darn good fishing fishing lures.

            My personal favorite is deer or elk tenderloins, fried in butter, in a cast iron skillet over a turkey cooker in the meat shack. I, like Sarge, do not care for ducks or geese.

                My favorite is fresh deer tenderloins.
                I also love the hot and sweet deer or bear sausage.

                I dislike spending so much time on blue claw crabs and getting so little crab meat for all the effort.
                Give me the Alaskan king crab with butter instead.

                  My favorite is crappie in a simple cornflour, flour, salt and pepper breading and deep fried. I like the tenderloin from any animal, fried in a skillet of real butter and Nick's Seasoning. Least fav animal is duck. Least fav fish would be salmon.

                    Surprised I am the first to say it but walleye takes all comers for fish ... and just about any other wild meat. Ruff grouse ("partridge" up here) is a close second.

                    I am working on another pot of goose jerky done up with a spicy recipe from Ducks Unlimited website. I use apple and lilac for smoking chips. It's pretty hard to beat!

                    My least favorite wild meat is also goose. The "finger" of isolated meat that lays against the breastbone keel is usually the sweet meat on most birds but for geese it's EXTREMELY gamey. Too bad because it's very tender. As far as flavor goes, the thighs are probably the best meat on a goose. But they are a bit gristly. It's a shame most guys throw the thighs away.

                      Try salmon one more time.
                      Marinate overnight in teriyaki marinade.
                      Get you grill hot with charcoal.
                      Place salmon skin side down on a sheet of foil.
                      Once it's done through, lift the salmon off the foil leaving the skin behind.
                      Gently turn salmon skin side up and remove the fat.
                      Enjoy!

                        And remember a salmon is not just a salmon. Pink salmon should only be cooked on the grill in my opinion. Way too oily and too often soft. Even when BBQed they are iffy. Dog salmon should be fed to the dogs as the name implies. Sometimes called chum salmon. They are the worst eating salmon. Sockeye is outstanding, for sure the best eating of all the salmonidae family. Baked, BBQed, canned, whatever, they are delicious!

                          Back straps off a deer. Butterflied, marinated in Italian dressing, cream cheese and mango chutney on the inside. Wrapped in bacon and grilled. And northern is my favorite fish. Even over walleye. I have to say pheasant is my least favorite.

                            Perch and walleye are right up there for fish. King salmon, when I can get some, is outstanding.
                            Deer has to be the tenderloins and back strap.
                            Squirrel or rabbit stew on a cold winters night is a extra treat.

                              I made some deer shanks (young deer, I thought they would be good) that stunk up the house and tasted worse. As always, I was very careful cleaning and skinning this deer. This was the worst, that and deer liver (I'll try the liver every 10 years or so, just to make sure). OH, I too, love the legs of game birds and I hate when I hear hunters tossing them out.Walleye you say?? Right now, I'm waiting for my older brother to come back from Northern Ontario with some walleye & perch for dear old me.
