Like chicken...

I don't know that separately I could say how much difference they taste than Whitetail, never having them side by side it's hard to tell.
Both taste similar to Whitetail, to some degree. I mean, you know you're eating venison.

Roe are little less flavorful, but very tender. Though, I did shoot one several years ago that didn't taste any different but the meat had an odor that was hard to get past. I ended up making that entire deer into bratwurst.

Red deer are somewhere between Whitetail and elk. Lots of flavor, but a little less tender than elk. By far the best game meat I've eaten here. Granted I'm basing that mostly on the 1 1/2 year old cow I shot, but I've had meat from large bulls too, and it's very good.

BCoz,

Have you had the good fortune to kill anything over there with decent headgear?

Couple of photos from Tuesday. I've mentioned many times how much I enjoy and being part of the Germans' hunting traditions, and this day was no exception. I'm honored to be invited to this hunt each year, especially because it's the German Forest Office that does it, and also because I'm the only American they invite even though there are several others that have hunting areas like I do through them. For some reason the like me.

A few of the Roe bucks I've shot were 6 points (they don't get more), and had some good mass to them.
I don't hunt for trophy sized Red or Fallow (both are in this area) simply because it would cost me a fortune to have that kind of good fortune. There is a trophy fee on almost every animal. The roe and smaller reds don't have a fee through the forest office, but other private places do. And Germany has the highest fees in all of Europe!
For example; At the beginning of the drive hunts the gather everyone together to give the "rules" for that hunt. Which type animals can be shot or not, no shooting of certain class size trophies, etc. Well, on Tuesday they said that all classes of Red are open. A class 3 (typical raghorn or spike) is free, class 2 would cost a trophy fee of 2,000 Euro, and a class 1 would cost 7,000!! My wallet cringed, and thankfully I didn't see any because I'm not sure I could be trusted to not shoot. Then I'd have to endure the wrath of my Frau!
There are some things about hunting here that I don't enjoy. Putting a monetary value on free ranging animals is at the top of the list.

Nice cutters on that hog. Thanks for posting the pics.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
