    I can't believe it myself, but I thought since I live here in Norway and am getting all primal and all I would try it... I have a guilty conscience kind of now... HOWEVER... I did get elk meat which is raised organically for eating... and it was quite yummy!!!!! I had some which was kind of like dried jerky or something, and a little piece of "elk medallions"- the best part of the elk meat (I do not know any meat lingo haha!) and it was really good! Must be primal meat I believe
    anyone kow how to prepare it?

    Hi - another Norwegian here and yep, I've had elk. It is gooood. What do you mean "raised organically"? Elk in Norway is living free in the nature and have a wonderful life and one awful day.

    Elk can be prepared like most meat, but as it tends to be leaner than CW raised domesticated animals they need a little special care to not come out too dry.
    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

    Yup. Quite common here in Idaho, where elk hunting makes a significant contribution to our economy. Why would you feel guilty about it?

    One awful minute, more like. Assuming they even notice. It certainly beats growing up miserable in a feedlot somewhere, I'd bet!

    Elk = yummy, especially the back strap.
    Even had some elk sausage which was terrific too.

    Yes! I was veg for 15 years but sometime during that 15 years, one of my best friends sister's boyfriends (lol), shot an elk in AK or Canada and brought some back to MI.

    I knew it was something very special at that time and did eat it.

    I can still 'taste' it. Delicious.

    Had some hunted elk sausage. It was delicious but since it was quite spicy, it could have been any good meat.
