I have a good neighbor and I know his intentions are well but he gave me a package of Caribou Meat and it was as close to $hit as it could get, this was shot this August and it was discusting. I know my tase buds are ok becaus I got a Doe a week ago, she ran smack right into the side of a school bus( my wife was pissed because I had a knife and I cut her throat(the deer) and tossed it into the trunk of our Pontiac). the kids got a good laugh, I was right there. Have you ever eaten Caribou? Dang! this, I could not eat..
