26 RCgold 2 weeks ago The last time I had venison it was chopped up in taco form. It was utterly nasty and I haven't had it since. I was been told that based on my description of how it tasted (which I no longer remember), that it was almost certainly a butchering screw up, like a nicked intestine or something. I haven't sworn it off, but I haven't seen it on a menu in quite some time. You must be very careful NOT to touch the scent glands on a buck and then anywhere else! It ruins the taste. Carefully cut the scent glands off and disguard!
