    do blacktails taste the best?

    That is my limited observation. What is yours? and does the meat quality, in general, vary between the three species?

    cheers

    Black tail tastes great, white tail tastes great too. Muley is coarser and stronger tasting in my experience.

    I've had all three, Bt's & Wt's are always good, Md's can vary lots.
    Don't matter all good,
    only a few days left to harvest my own or it's tag soup,
    Next year is year 4 for me hunting, it'll come I know.
    I can hear them gettn closer to me though.

    The nephew brought some blacktail this fall and I have got to say it was pretty tasty. I don't care much for the other species of deer. Must be the little old lady's flowers they eat that make them taste so good.

    Depends on what they’ve been eating. I’ve eaten many of each, but a whitety that’s been eating out of farm fields (cereal crops) is hard to beat.

    MY favorite deer are the little ones from Haida Gwaii. Nice and tender with amazing flavour.
