Because I can get all I want for free from friends that hunt.  But I don’t, because it’s not really very good.

I wish we farmed elk. Makes me want to make some tonight. 

We have Elk farms here in Alberta, as well as Bison. 

I bought farmed elk a few times in colorado. Guy told me that the real money was antlers.

It is.


It can cause problems with spreading disease to the wild populations.


Lots of farmed venison in Australia

We do. It’s a niche market.

Too gamy for the US palate.

Shit, lamb is relegated to a tiny area of the meat case.

Can you go buy elk at the normal store? 

I don’t know about that. I’ve never seen it, but that doesn’t mean it’s not available.

I can get frozen ground elk at the local store, but nothing else.

I love it, but maybe too lean for mass market consumption and not enough different ways to prepare it like chicken has?

Hell yeah, braised lamb shanks are a thing of beauty!  Favourite fall dinner.  Top that with a grilled lamb chop or two and you’re set.

Venison is a lot leaner, so it’s easy to make it tough if cooked like a fattier meat, but it’s still a nice change from beef.  Throw a couple of dark cherries into a demiglace for a sauce and serve with a decent Pinot.

I guess if people never venture outside of the chicken breast or beef burger realm, different meats taste, well, different, but that’s kind of the point.  Some people drink the same brand of beer for their entire life too.

I agree, people often have a pretty narrow comfort zone when it comes to their proteins. Anything out of the ordinary is gross, but they'll eat chicken McNuggets. Go figure.

Are you a closet vegan or something?

Braised lamb shanks are one of the greatest things ever.

I did a smoked leg of lamb last week and it was beautiful.

And lamb cutlets straight off the grill are fkn awesome. They even come with a goddamn handle. How convenient is that???!!
