Thread: Roebuck taste

  1. #1

    Roebuck taste

    It's said that red stags are not good to eat when in the rut.
    Is there any significant change to the taste in roebuck in the rut ?.

    Yes. They definitely taste different. We still eat them but we will put them in a pie or stew.

    yes they taste GOOD!

    I prefer red hind to stag preferably 3/4 beasts but roe in or out of the rut is much sweeter and less gamey IMO

    I have been experimenting with Roe recently

    I had Roe Tartare which was awesome!
    Roe Fillet steak
    Roe Rump kebab
    Roe Loin

    all barbequed

    I would definitely say that the last roe buck I shot a couple of weeks ago was more gamey than usual.
