    Nothing wrong with it VC! Treat them a bit like goats though, the older bucks are a bit rough, chuck that aside for salamis, roasted back leg off a young animal I reckon isn't much different to goat, gotta cook them slow and low or they can be a bit tough, they go good in a stir fry too

    Iv had it 3 times and would rather eat the arse out of a old dairy cow that died trying to give birth in a ditch 3 weeks ago.
    Hence I stalk past the smelly goats Hoping to shoot something to eat.
    I even talk those I am hunting with out of shooting cham(much to their dismay usually) in case it scares off some venison .

    Somehow there has to be a way to settle this debate by arranging an eating and drinking challenge. I will think on this a while and come back to you both. Or you could just do the pistols at dawn thing. Ha ha ha ha.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Ive only had Cham that tasted like Arse once , probably because it came from a Safari park ( Stressed Im guessing ) Cham backsteak is almost as good as Venni

    Spent a fare hunk of time livin out of huts and draped over many camp ovens lol,,the local butcher only supplied Chamois,Thar and venie,oh and goat.
    They all tasted great at the end of the day,steak,left over stew or what ever,all good. Like most things younger is better,,chamois wasn't as poppular as Thar or venie all the same

    The old forest service camp cookery book lists possum, rabbit, canada goose and all the rest. Seems a camp oven makes anything edible. Much respect for those guys, we probably look soft compared to them.

    slow cooking does wonders for something a bit tough and a good marinade with it .old stag front shoulders in slow cooker with one of those marinades from supermarket makes a good meal .cook for 6 to 8 hours on low with the spuds on top tea done for the next few nights.

    Slow cooking makes pretty much anything tender it is a given.

    Cause you are

    Around here there is a full selection of camp ovens and cast fry pans, in fact it's all that we cook with. Oh, and one enamel billy for spuds, hard boiling eggs etc.
    Give the alloy and non stick crap to the mother in law.
    Medium sized campoven, skin arse end of rabbits and throw back wheels in on top of several chopped up onions, salt, peppper, bit of red wine, mixed herbs. Thicken a couple of hours or so later. Bit of chilli powder goes good as well.
    The main rule of firearms.....Always point firearms in a safe direction

    backstraps off either rabbit or hare (hare is bigger n better) treat these the same as you would venison, slice thinly across grain 2cm-3/4" at most hot frypan or camp oven with a real cooking lube (fat great, oil ok,butter plurry pricey but great if you can sneak it past the cook) a bit of seasoning,salt/pepper or the likes of masterfoods quick fry and chuck on hunk of buttered bread......try this with hare and I dare you to tell me its much different to venison...tastes the same just smaller.
    have eaten rabbits and hares all of my life ,chunked and fried,casseroled,stuck on stick and cooked over open fire
    vastly underrated tucker.
