    Not so much rotten, just a strong, wild taste. It smells different when being cooked too, which puts me off.

    if you couldnt use the word "gamey" what other single word would describe it?

    Gamey means nothing to me.

    Wild.

    I'm not an expert though. Maybe 'gamey' has something to do with how they let the meat 'cure' by hanging it for several days? I've never found any of it to taste bad, or like it's going bad....so my best description is 'it has a wild taste'.

    yeah thats what everyone says

    one person told me it leaves this nasty oily taste in your mouth when you eat it. That turned me right off.

    I wonder why all animals dont taste gamey... i can only imagine its the animals diet not necessarily an "all wild animal" thing.
    Otherwise why wouldnt all animals taste "gamey"?

    no. because it refers specifically to non domesticated animals. domesticated animals bred for food are bred that way for their taste. plump and all that. wild animals are just doing their thing.

    i see thanks

    i was thinking along the same lines but i figured the main thing that seperated wild and domesticated taste was because of diet

    i figured if you domesticated deer theyd start tasting less gamey

    The gator was made into a jerky, and i also had it breaded and deep fried like chicken nuggets in the everglades. it tasted like chicken(cliche yea)and fish both times. there are places in florida where you can get the ribs bbq'ed too. i need to try that.

    i had kangaroo jerky as well, it was shitty.

    gamey is like, bitter i guess. it tastes kinda rotten but it's not.

    like venison. a lot of people say it's too gamey, but unless it was killed traumatically it's not gamey. rabbit, if killed properly tastes good too. if an animal is stressed when it dies, it releases some chemical that completely distorts the taste. also, if an animal is mostly muscle, it'll have that bitter flavor to it.

    idk, i'd say gamey taste is kinda like when beef is about 1-2 days from turning bad and you smell it and go "shit i better cook this now!" that smell is what gamey tastes like.

    is this proven? i never believed my sheikhs when they told me this.

    apparently this is the reason why muslims pray a prayer upon the animal before killing.

    all my friends that are hunters say it's true. they've hit deer with their trucks (not on purpose - i think) and have shot deer, and they say the taste is so different because the animal is stressed when they hit it. that's why hunters wait until the animal is unaware and calm, because when it's startled it gets adrenaline and whatever chemical (maybe it's adrenaline) fucks the taste.
