    Default Deer meat

    I have been looking into a black tail hunt and was considering Kodiak, but a friend of my wifes said that the deer on Kodiak don't taste very good. Has any one else noticed a difference?

    I'm sure it doesn't compare with southeast deer, so I'll provide a mailing address to take it off your hands.

    Default kodiak deer meat

    I sure your friends wife may be correct - so when you pass through anchorage I will be more than happy to to take it off of your hands.
    (seriously though, it is very good if it is well taken care of in the field.)

    Unfortunatly there are no deer on Kodiak, but if there were they would taste terrible.

    I've got a commercial grade grinder, so I'll take that terrible meat off your hands and grind it up for you. Just don't be surprised when it loses 50% of its weight. It tends to do that with my grinder with other peoples' deer meat.

    You just can't get a straight answer out of any one huh.
    Well I am assuming by all the offers to take the non exsitant meat that no one else has noticed a difference between Kodiak deer and deer from other parts of the state.

    Default Very good

    All the deer I have killed has been great! I had a deer chop from somebody else that was very gamy. It was killed in peak rut and was a older deer and probably was not taken real good care of, bone in. Kodiak blacktail(except one time) is way better than any mule deer I have ever eaten! Whitetail is similarly as good to me!

    Default It's all good

    I have hunted and eaten blacktail from Kodiak, PWS, and SE. It is all good and compares to elk and moose in my opinion. The person who said it was not must have had a bad piece or something.

    It all depends on how it is cared for from shot placement to the frying pan.

    I don't know I've seen some bears eat some pretty nasty stuff.

    Thanks for opinions.

    Default meat

    On a scale of 1 to 10 it comes in pretty close to an 11. I'm sure that you could spoil it with bad care, but if you do a good job of cleaning it and then take care of it properly it is very hard to beat.

    You have had some good offers, I will not only pick it up, load it in my truck. I will pay for the ammo you use to shoot it. And it does taste really bad.

    Default Had some last night!!!

    Tasted pretty good to me. But then again, all game meat if cleaned and prepared properly and NOT TAKEN during the rut, have tasted good to me. I once shot a moose that I thought was iffy, smelled like piss on the outside, but was quite tasty on the inside. I always wondered if the rut really had an effect. AT

    I'll take an old rutted up buck from kodiak, over a fat corn-fed doe from Iowa anyday.
