    Dang, i wish we could vote for more than one! Sheep is out of this world, but Moose is absolutely fantastic too as is a good caribou! I grew up on wild game and would rather moose over beef bar none!

    Being a lower 48er, I have eaten a little buffalo....a lot of elk.
    I suspect I will like buffalo more than elk when I finally get a chance to have an entire carcass of one to chow down on.
    I have eaten a little moose, but not enough to compare it to elk, yet.

    I think the blacktails are tops with moose right in there as well. and sheep and caribou..... Heck I like it all as long as it was well cared for. Small game not so much... Ruffed grouse are okay. Young white breasted grouse are okay. Rabbits and purple breasted grouse.... not so much

    Sheep is #1, but blacktailed deer are a very close #2. Bison, caribou, and moose round out the top five in my book. For small game, I really like hares.

    #1 best is Sheep meat, especially after a week of pounding the slopes, but always best before it gets frozen.
    #2 Elk, #3 Moose, #4 Anything else I shoot, #5 Whatever my client-hunters shoot.
    And why is it that the best tasting game meat is from animals that I have personally harvested? And the second best tasting meat is from animals that my client-hunters have shot?
    (And I believe others hunters often agree with them comment/questions.)
    #1 worst...ruttin caribou, #2 worst...old billy goat

    Fat Berry fed Black Bear is the ONLY meat that is better than Caribou.....

    I voted black tailed deer, especially a nice fat August buck, as my favorite. Followed closely by Dall sheep.

    I was always told that Musk ox was GREAT meat, and it rivaled no others. Well, I was on an August goat hunt in Kodiak, and we also harvested some black tail. The tenderloins on those deer....were better than any meat, i've EVER tried. Simply the best!!

    Bison and sheep in a dead heat in this household, just need to find a sheep as big as a bison.

    I am suprised it took so many posts for someone to say that! LOL

    The one which the wife and kids liked most was Caribou, on the grill. I noticed it had a more pronounced liver taste after a couple of months in the freezer. My favorite was the backstraps from a 2 1/2 yo female Blackbear. I am limited to Elk and Deer and like both equally well. Never had sheep but love a leg of New Zealand Lamb.
    About the only small game I care to shoot are Doves and there are plenty of ways to prepare them.

    Beaver's my fav too...the rawer the better... I'm inclined to say moose, as the way I prep it, it's like a ****ed good grass fed beef...

    I think ruffed grouse are hard to beat but they were not on the list.
