i eat so much i really dont notice it.it gets "gamey" from bad gutting/storage/handling most times.an old buck in the rut will be a little tougher i have noticed.try newbies out with the tender loins and back straps .also trim as much fat and silver skin as possible this is another source of gamey taste
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
