    all of that and overspicing everything until you can't tell what it is that you're eating.

    .... hanging the meat in a non-temperature controlled environment (better off cutting and freezing right away)

    .... not trimming off the fat and fascia

    ....or trying to get everything to taste like chicken and beef (the mushroom soup crowd). Venison should taste like venison, duck like duck etc. etc.. You want it to taste like beef -- go shoot a cow. Taste lots of food and figure out how to COMPLEMENT the flavors of game - not HIDE them. Guaranteed a beef stew recipe with deer substituted in will usually taste a little "off" because the flavourings that go well with beef don't always go well with venison.

    DING DING DING.
    We have a winner.:clap :clap :clap


    And there's nothing wrong with mushroom soup......as a meal.
    I just don't use it as a short cut for cream sauces.

    save those bones.
    roast them.
    make stocks from them.
    you'll love the difference in flavor.

    Mushroom soup does not make anything taste like beef or chicken...if the recipe you use does that, there's something wong with it.

    Not saying that is does Jimbob. I'm saying that for a lot of people, having their wild game taste like beef or chicken is the utlimate goal -- one that nearly always fails. The most common way for them to attempt to reach this "epicurean plateau" is by dumping a lot of strong flavored crap on it in order to "disguise" the gamey taste. Thus they end up using a lot of mushroom soup -- not as a complement but as a cover for a flavour they don't like.

    They "try" to make it taste like something it's not and ruin it in the process.

    Oh and I like mushroom soup. But I make my own from stock and dried wild mushrooms. The canned stuff just looks like dog vomit to me.
