You don't know what gamey taste is??? It could be because you enjoy it and don't realize what it is because you have grown up with it all your life and you think it is the natural flavor of the meat. Its why some people say they don't like the taste of deer and other wild game. Do you crock pot allot of deer? If you do, you have probably tasted it but did not realize thats what gamey meat tastes like. Do you like liver and other organ meat? If you do then gamey flavored meat might not bother you. Do you eat goat? Goat can be gamey when not prepared correctly. Squirrel and wild ducks are very gamey and need allot of care to get rid of the gameyness. Wild geese are one of the worst in my opinion when it comes to requiring allot of care to make sure they don't turn out really gamey.

I am not trying to offend you. I know several people who don't notice such things. I have a friend from Maine and a friend from Newfoundland and both of them can eat the guts straight out of an animal and thinks its the best thing they ever ate. My brother has similar tastes when it comes to fish. Me, I have to fillet everything and cook it just right. My brother can eat anything when it comes to fish. He makes an awful fish stew where he just throws the fish straight in and its the fishy, slimiest thing I have ever witnessed. My friend from Newfoundland took canned smoked mussles out into the duck blind once and I tried those. I about projectile vomitted. I don't understand how human beings can eat such things but thats just me.


Wild game doesn't have a gamey taste... store bought meat has a farmy taste!

No offense taken(I'm not that thin skinned), Ok, I should have worked that differently.............I know what "WILD" animals taste like, that is why I harvest them and eat them(with the exception of 'yotes)LOL. I grew up on venison, squirrel, rabbit, etc. and yes I use my crockpot constantly. I guess what I should have said was..........I don't understand what other expect when they eat wild game??? It is WILD game and isn't supposed to taste like chicken or a big mac. Like I said earlier in the thread, aging the meat will not intensify a really gamey piece of meat, it started out that way.

I find most domestic meat to be rather bland. I much prefer wild game over farm raised most any day of the week.

Ditto, I have to agree. I purchase very little store bought red meat for that very reason, and seldom order a steak or burger when out to dinner. My friends parents own a farm, they slaughter/butcher there own cattle, that has an entirely different taste to it than store bought beef.

Grass fed cattle are a different class. I can eat that -totally earthy taste and great marbleing.

I get it now. Its not that aging the meat intensifies the gameyness but rather it intensifies its natural flavor and gives the meat the proper amount of gameyness or flavor as it were. I understand.

This post started out about aging venison then ended about the gameyness of venison.

Alot of knowledge here about aging venison, and the gameyness of venison so this is why I want to ask this question.

Is a buck in full rut more gamey than a buck before he is in rut.

Negative. Their tarsal gland is musty, but it does not effect the meat.
