I'd like to try elk.

I've heard that you can use gun powder to season meat when you don't have salt - do you think that's true?

if it is ... better not break fart.
I think it would be safe to sprinkle dirt on your meat. :lol:

probably taste good too!!

Is moose fatty like bear?

I've had elk, they sell it in snausage form here at the meat market. It is very tasty.


Great job MrBubble. ;)

No, moose is lean and used to be my favourite meat until I tried our pasture raised lamb. I prefer it to bear, which would be comparable to pork in fat content, but def not in taste. Although it has been way too many years since I had either. :hit

No, it tastes more like beef. I just meant it used to be my favourite until I tried lamb. They taste nothing alike. ( I had never had lamb before we processed our own.) and when I say it tastes like beef, beef pales in comparison.

I've never had moose. I've had elk. Is it similar?
