Out of curiosity, which would you rather eat?
Depends on which part. Hard to beat bacon
exactly, how is that even a valid question
Pig. Easier to domesticate.
Although pork is awesome on occasion, nothing beats a backstrap. Plus, eating venison that you harvested yourself makes you feel manly, eating bacon makes your heart hurt.
Deer would probably be healthier.
I chose deer, but either would be great. A pig would make a good garbage disposal too.
Hard to bet venison! I can smoke it, and make jerky that's even better than bacon!
And then There is the pepperoni!
Wait but Kailua pig from NoHo's tastes so good... Ughh
Never heard of anyone cooking a deer in the ground.....
Also, I would go pig hunting over deer hunting.
PIG! The only venison or elk I've had in my life has been given to me. I don't get it? All that work for tough, flavorless meat? Granted, no one's going to give me back-strap, but heck, the stuff I got was like extra lean round steak. Now PIG, it's all good! Some leaner, some fatter, smoked, stewed, fried, B-B-Q'ed. Sausage, mmm!
Deer and elk are too lean. "Lean may be KEEN, but FAT is where it's at!"
I prefer to hunt deer but I prefer to eat pork.
Between the only two choices offered - pig. Mostly because I really don't care for the taste of venison. Elk would be preferable to me for a 'wild' animal.
Out of the two. Pig.
If I had my choice of wild animal it would be alfalfa fed antelope.
Hmm... Maybe pig-fed deer?
Now a day, if I could raise my own venison, venison it would be.
Due to lands getting closed, access fees, hunting license, tags, time, fuel (I can go on and on. You get my point) etc, etc, I'll buy grass fed.
Venison (wild game) is good, and can easily be a main staple, BUT, with all the regulation mentioned, I spend my money elsewhere. Privately.
Choke on that one Dept Of Fish & Wildlife!!
Game meat sits better on my digestive track so I will always go for the leaner meat.
Being half Texan, Brisket is my preferred BBQ but a good set of pork ribs or pulled pork butt or bacon are all very good as well.
Soooooo, my question is why only the two options and they are polar options at that - domesticated pig vs wild deer?
I think the "why" of your question would give you more pertinent feedback, unless your just bored and the question is just what it is.
I have to agree with orge. I love both but pork takes it pretty easily.
I chose pig, but really I would have chosen wild boar. No limits on how many of those you can get per year.
Deer is just a goat and tastes like it. When I hunted I made sausage out of it, mixed with some pork. Never really developed a taste for it. Use some bacon for cooking, but eat turkey "bacon".
For red meat I pretty much eat elk. My boys whacked two this year and gave me some, and I buy farm raised elk, and Painted Hills black angus beef. I have a severely mechanically compromised digestive tract and the texture and type of meat I eat is critical to how it digests and how I feel.
Cost is not even a consideration. Health is everything.
But, man, if I could get some of my mom's venison, canned in its own gravy! Oh laudy!
I like 'em both , but voted for deer.
If you shop smart you don't have to worry to much about "all the chemical goodness" that comes in some of todays food. But with the deer I have no worries about that at all...
