A popular misconception about all wild game is that it has a "gamey" taste. This is all in how you prepare your meat. For most who have never tried wild game they have a preconceived notion that it is going to taste weird or awful. There are some individuals who will never try it unless they aren't aware of what they are eating. In these cases almost always they are pleasantly surprised. Growing up in a household where Venison was a nightly meal and eating turtles, rabbits, elk, squirrel, bear and wild hog is nothing to blink at you do not think about what your neighbors are eating for dinner. This was normal and so were the tastes. With grandparents who descended from Italy and Czechoslovakia my parents had the best cooking inspirations growing up and those cooking traditions have been passed down. Bottom line is that we love food and lots of it!
