Wild Game: The Allure of Wild Game
Wild game is defined as animals that are hunted and not raised on farms. Game meats, like venison and elk as well as bison, rabbit and wild boar are leaner, with distinct flavors depending on the diet and environment of the animals. The variety of flavors provides an exciting experience for grill masters.

Prepare the game
You must prepare the meat before you can perfect the art of grilling wild game. It is important to handle the meat properly so that its flavors can shine through.

a. Field Dressing: Remove unwanted parts from the animal and field dress it to ensure its freshness. This step is usually done immediately after the hunt.

b. Ageing: Allow the meat to age for up to two weeks to develop flavors and tenderize it. It’s important to age game meat because it can be lean or tough if you don’t prepare it correctly.

Cuts and Portion Size: Select your cuts and portion sizes carefully. Grilling is best done with thicker cuts, which retain more moisture and taste.
