I have been hearing for years that both moose and caribou bulls enjoy drinking the urine of their sweeties. This is supposedly the cause of their strong flavored meat and the reason behind the liver texture in caribou. I've heard that bull moose liver gets inedible after a few weeks of lapping it up as well.
I can almost believe the inedible liver theory but I am having a hard time believing its not just a hormonal response that's causing the changes in texture and strong flavored meat. Can anyone confirm or explain these theories?
