"Most people think you have to take the 'wild' taste out of deer. But really you can keep that good 'game' flavor by using a variety of herbs and spices."

Very good recipe- I liked it a lot. It did however erase ALL the gamey taste and that might be a problem for some. It still was delicious meat- just didn't really taste like deer anymore!
