i have to say i dont stress about it. i freeze my wild pork and venison to preserve it, not for any anti parasitic purpose. i eat the venison raw and cooked rare from an unfrozen state. i eat fish out of the sea raw too. you do things like check the organs look healthy as you are gutting them with any animal.
While parasites are to some extent ubiquitous, the higher on the food chain the more likely the animal is infested. Eating rare predators is very risky, a good way to end up profiled in an article in a medical journal.
wild deer and pigs where i get them from just eat mainly grass and clover and some native bush. i should prob expand my knowledge of the fish species i eat. my faves are the fish that eat mainly crabs and seaweed. i only usually eat them raw after they have been soaked in lemon juice. kakoda. i eat shellfish raw and sea urchins raw too.
i wouldnt shoot a bear either. i guess if i was overseas and someone gave me some to eat, i would eat it to be polite. it is a totally different thing here hunting as everything with fur that we hunt are officially noxious pests.
