I have never been able to eat an antler, and those bucks full of hormones taste like crap compared to a nice sweet doe. I shot an old girl off my uncles farm back in NY. Corn and alfalfa fed, field dressed at 168lb.

I have a trophy hanging in the barn, friend gave me one of his many.

Well Ed, figure in Cub express, purchase pick-up, seeing friends ect.. the meat is just a plus.

I always figured buck vension tasted sort of like an old boar hog.

Never eaten much venison but most of what I have had was good. That was all still-hunted. Even if it's a doe if she's been run all day long by a pack of dogs, the meat won't be very good=strong tasting.
