    Default Poll:Favorite Alaskan Game Meat

    Another thread that had some surprising comments had me thinking about this. What I'd like is to know your favorite tasting big game, not what fills the freezer or has the best trophy appeal. So, if you could have a plate right now, what would it be?

    young fat caribou is my vote, but black bear and deer are pretty close.
    don't care for bison much, tastes like beef.

    Well, wife and kids like caribou best. I like all game meat. Tender and mild the best. The best I ever had was steaks given to me from a Kodiak Blacktail doe that was aged on the roof of the boat as they hunted for a week. Somehow the temps must have been perfect that year to age the meat just right so you could cut it with a fork like veal. I tried to age my caribou like that this year in the garage but cut it short worrying about spoilage and its good but not nearly as good at that particular blacktail......
    I come home with an honestly earned feeling that something good has taken place. It makes no difference whether I got anything, it has to do with how the day was spent. Fred Bear

    Deer are my favorite with moose second I think sheep being the best is a willing suspension of disbelief. If you've packed up and down mountains packing out the meat it's better than Kobe beef but I've tried other peoples and well not so much. I tried for years to make good bou recipes the best way to eat a bou steak is beat it with a hammer and chicken fry it.

    August Blacktail. The time of year can make a big difference on some of the meats listed. A fall black bear that has been eating berries is tasty, yet one who is gorging himself on salmon can be rather rank. Rut caribou vs august caribou vs winter caribou....

    Looks like the poll is flawed - Sitka deer is mine.

    2dawgs sent me a care package a while back via the UPS overnight froze hard as a rock method. Momma cooked a bou roast all day with taters, carrots and a little celery. It was soooo good! Can't think of a better feed in my lifetime!

    Then there was the bou baloney with some bite to it. I liked it too but around 2 in the morning I let a fart that made the ceiling fan spin backwards for a while. Yes sir ree Bob and that was just the start. Momma went to the spare room and I slept with my face in my pillow! I was about half skeared to open the wood stove in the morning for blowin the place up. It takes a good hunk of baloney to work on a fella that way. I think I'll eat some more of that tonight!

    There is no question in my mind. Sheep meat. Especially ribs on a campfire right off the mountain.
