I keep meaning to adventure out into other stuff but outside of a few "staples" I've tried, I haven't had much wild game on my table. I know a few guys that are avid hunters, so when they get a good haul they pass out some of the catch to the guys they know that enjoy it. Something I'd like to get into someday but I don't really have the time (or funds ) for yet another hobby right now. Yeah, Turkey was one of the only things I've tried that did not taste better wild. Tasted exactly how you described, very leathery and almost dirt-like.
