thanks for the reply!Ok Timmy, do you know the smell a car has when there is a coolant leak? A distinctive hot smell, that my Irish wife says smells like a hot strong cup of tea. Well that's what large mature kangaroo, smells and tastes like (disgusting).
Professional roo shooters have a limit to how many they can sell, and they are paid by the kilogram so obviously they shoot the biggest in a mob to get the most money. So store bought, and restaurant cooked kangaroo is in my opinion horrible... But a small to medium sized younger one is delicious. I'm spoilt in the fact I'm not obligated to harvest the meat of any game shot like I'm led to believe you guys in the US are. Because I shoot alot of them I just take the back straps of the premium ones. I soak them in salty iced water over night and then cook it in my camp oven for five hours with sweet potato, pumpkin, garlic, chillies and carrots. It's so nice kinda like corned beef. My wife just thin slices hers and barely cooks it in a screaming hot skillet. It's what we have as our main protein.
Now as for wallaby... You could live on it but it tastes like S#¶T . We don't shoot wallabies there protected and not a problem for us.
that deer looks tasty!
