Eating on the wild side?
Anyone tried eating crocodile?
Barrow Boar Ltd.
You can get Crocodile tail fillet from that site,Wildboar, Ostrich.
Keziefoods Zebra from that one! Also python meat! I've always wanted to try some meaty snake!
I didn't even think you could buy crocodile meat! Some of the meats are pretty expensive. Might treat myself at christmas to a Crocodile fillet
Anyone tried any of these yummy looking meats?

when i was way younger like 5-6 my dad had it in florida on a vacation. I think he said it was ok, a little different. Not something he would eat alot off...and he likes steak and burgers, etc etc
i hear ostrich is good, but pricey. also a quality protein source.

Haven't tried croc but if its close to alligator its makes a good jerky. Ostrich is really good IMO, I want to try an ostrich egg really bad.Muscle Pharm Rep

Bison is amazing, and it is often raised hormone free and on grass. I've also looking into getting venison/game meat from local hunters.

Venison is awesome! I am thinking about getting a hunting license this year just to bag a couple deers but I will probably chicken out on shooting them. Bison is good to but its so damn expensive.

Ostrich is great. I used to eat it every week until Fudruckers stopped carrying it. Their ostrich burgers were great

buffalo burgers are great! I had croc and it wasn't that good. Tasted like... not much really. lol. Venison is the only reason that I'll wake up at 4am and go sit in the cold woods.

buffalo burgers are good. theres a place near me that sells them.
They have elk burgers too. havent tried those yet.

Moose is great, also caribou, and of course salmon the real kind not farmed. Just one more benny living in The AK.

the only buffalo around here is frozen patties that I can sometimes buy at the store. They aren't very big around here.

Ostrich deli meat is great. I stop at the Cabelas by my house sometimes just to get one at their deli. Ive had alligator and liked it, but never crocodile.

I've had alligator and buffalo, I like them both. Deer meat as well. I try to get buffalo most of the summer as we have a farm near us that sells it.

here it is like 5 bucks for 2 buffalo burgers... Im not sure if that is a good price or not.

i keep a pound of alligator in the freezer all the time, when I get in a wild mood I make some chili with it, and the buy another pound for the freezer they sell it in all the publix stores in the seafood dept
I used to have to get it elsewhere, now its convenient

the gator lightly rolled in cornmeal, then quick fried in coconut oil to brown it, then added to chili is superb

Gator/Croc is ok. Pretty wasteful though as it is a very small section of the tail. I know the other parts are 'used', just seems silly to me.
Bison is fantastic meat. Lean and grass-fed, lots of farms here in CO.
Ostrich is delicious, more like a steak than 'poultry'.
Elk, moose, deer are great, but depends on the processing. Sausages aren't all that good for you, but loin and steaks are where its at.
Horse is huge in Canada and a high quality protein source. Us Americans sort of have a aversion to it, but its available in most grocery stores in CA, (at least was in Quebec).
Great restaurant here that serves just about everything, gator, rattlesnake, quail, elk, bison, Rocky Mtn. Oysters, etc. Buffalo Prime Rib is my fave!

I like squirrel, but I love rabbit. I shot 6 deer this year & I've been loving it. But I can already see the end of my supply of venison and it's making me feel homicidal (towards Bambi). There's nothing better than free meat...

I had fresh ostrich when I was in Africa (ostrich neck actually) and it wasn't too bad, as far as horse meat in the grocery stores here in Canada, its never been in any of the supermarkets here in the East Coast.

Buffalo burgers are good, as are Elk burgers.
Bucher shop near me sells them for lunch.
I give the nod to the elk though.

I liked the elk better than the buffalo, personally. slightly more flavorfull. I liked it as much, if not more than a good beef burger.
The taste on either one, is really very close to beef, but with different "accents," if that makes sense. I had them all as burgers, with ketchup, mayo and mustard on them, so I didnt get 100% pure flavor, if anyone is counting. good though. if the price was less than beef(it isint) id eat either one instead.
