How many of you have eaten rabbit, deer, and wild board?
Wild Board tastes like sawdust. Personally I prefer a nice Cedar.
Rabbit is okay, and tastes like whatever the seasoning is.
I had venison chili. It tastes like beef. Never had venison steak. I had buffalo steak. I didn't care for it. It is a little bit gamey.
Deer is good, I like it. Also elk.
Rabbit is OK. It's kind of fatty, tastes a bit like chicken drumsticks maybe. Not white meat chicken at all.
Smoked boar I had once. It was decent. I don't really like to eat pig though.
Rabbit is a bit like chicken, including white meat chicken, and not very fatty, at least in casserole, so I'm kind of wondering what Pestular got?
Venison and Boar, typically dark and a bit gamey, yes, not THAT much like beef. More like ostrich maybe, although maybe that doesn't help.
Well I last had rabbit when I was around 12, in a stew. I didn't care much for it, but it was ok. Probably my memory is faulty.
Yeah, I've eaten bunny. It was OK, nothing special.
Venison, I ate the deer I ran over. It was pretty good. Made good venison.
I had rabbit in a French restaurant once as a kid and I recall it being very fatty, with so much gristle I had to fill my napkin with it.
Years later I tried it again and it was very lean.
Not sure why so much difference. Maybe the first time it wasn't actually rabbit.
Now that I think about it, it must have been duck.
Duck is awesome.
I had wild bunny in a very fancy French restaurant in Quebec City. It was decent.
I few years ago I had kosher bison steak. It was OK, but cow is better.
WR, I hope you're not doing what our communist biology teacher did to us in the 6'th grade.
She asked us "How many of you have drank coffee?"
"Real coffee, not the barley + chicory stuff you find in the store. You know how it looks like. Who knows how it looks like gets a 10 (maximum mark) tomorrow".
Next day there were only one guy idiot enough to show to the whole class how real coffee beans look like. And find out our teacher is an informer for who should not have known I'm an enemy of the people.
So coming back to your question, no, I've never eaten rabbit, deer, or wild board. And if you asked me, I guess they very much taste like chicken.
"And find out our teacher is an informer for who should not have known I'm an enemy of the people."
That's hilarious. Real story?
Deer can taste like dry roast beef. It has very low fat levels, so it is much tougher than beef. That's if it is a doe. Bucks can taste very "gamey" due to testosterone changing the taste of the meat.
Boar can also taste much like pork if the animal was female. Male pigs get castrated (they get called "barrows") to avoid the testosterone from making the meat taste weird (it also makes them gain weight faster and are much less aggressive when denutted). To pig farmers, a "boar" is a male pig of breeding age who has not been neutered.
As for rabbit, once a long time ago:
That business didn't last long because he set it up as a pyramid scheme.

There's a local place that serves a nice venison chili, Texas style.
I've had it a couple times and enjoyed it. Agreed, it's a rather lean meat.
My grand mother used to cook rabbit for anniversary diners. Tasted good, but my memory of it is faint.
Deer I eat once and a while in restaurants, it's like strong tasting beef. I like it.
Around Christmas time there is a lot of farm bred (mostly Polish) rabbit and deer in the supermarkets. But their taste is much more bland than wild meat.
Then there is the hare. Much stronger taste than rabbit, redder too, as they are long distance runners of the open fields, not just hopping around their burrows like rabbits.
