Antelope at the table?

I've never eaten any speed goat. I've had plenty of deer, some moose, buff and domestic goat and lamb.

What does the Pronghorn taste like. How do you season and cook it?

Most of mine have been sausage or ground. The ground was great in spaghetti/lasagna/etc and good mixed with beef for burgers. I marinaded the loins with this: Kelly Reinemer's Antelope Marinade | Field & Stream for a day then grilled them. I was shocked how good it turned out. I'll use it again next time for sure.

Re: Antelope at the table?

Does it have a gamey flavor like deer or is it more like lamb or something else?

The marinaded loins tasted like beef honestly.

And the sausage (or whatever elkregulator was getting at) of course tasted more like what it was made with than the actual antelope. The ground was drier than beef, and perhaps a little sagey (indicative of their diet), but still very good.

It depends on what they feed on (the ones I have harvested here in MT feed mostly on wheat and alfalfa ... where I hunted in AZ and NM, they feed on sage brush so they are gamey) and how you take care of the meat after the shot and how you prepare it. Having said that, my MT antelope harvest are not gamey at all and I cook them like I would beef. I like their meat better than deer.

I agree with this 100%. If it bounced around on the back of a flat bed truck in the sun you probably wont like it. But if it was cooled out quick after the kill and properly processed you are in for a treat. We had MT. antelope for dinner tonight. A buck that measured 16 2/8's. It was prepaired like beef and tasted just as good. I grew up eating Iowa corn fed whitetails... Antelope is WAY better in my opinion.
