    Default rutting caribou for a newbie

    so i just killed my first caribou...well reindeer on kodiak. I had no idea a rutting bull tasted so rank. I already had it processed into steaks, roasts, burger, and breakfast sausage. i've cooked steaks and burgers and can't hardly stand it. any advice to pull some of that musk taste out? or did i just learn a valuable lesson? any advice would be appreciated!

    Valuable lesson....absolutely. The burger may be usable in things like chili, tacos etc...something with a significant amount of spices. It won't elminate the gaminess, but it can help disguise it enough to keep you from throwing it away.

    ya I am realizing it. I cooked some buger last night with a bunch of green chile peppers in hopes it would cover that taste....nope. i'll try some tacos next. man that stuff is potent!! I've killed big rutting bull elk that taste like filet mignon compared to this caribou!
