    Since we're already off topic, how is caribou? I love elk, but have yet to try caribou.

    Caribou from Nunavut taste amazing! They mostly graze on moss and lichen on the Arctic tundra, we don't have trees where I'm from. So they have a sweet flavour, a much, much different taste than elk.

    Being that far north, do they have much fat or are they pretty lean?

    I imagine a very earthy flavor, somewhere between lamb and venison...can you compare it? Lol what a strange off topic, from the gun to what the gun got, to what the guts get lol!!!

    Caribou get pretty fat in the fall before winter, it keeps them healthy throughout the long winter season. And they taste nothing like Lamb. I've had leg of lamb before and that was quite a musky taste. Caribou tastes sweet, almost like deer but a little different.

    Do you ever grind them up into hamburger meat?

    I don't know if northern deer are different, but the deer we have down here are so lean if you want to grind them for actual hamburger patties, instead of chili or tacos, you have to add in some brisket or other fat so the meat will stick together.

    This 15-20 mins stuff, is that with oldskool blades or like a sawzall or something?

    And just how much meat is in a caribou, anyway?

    That's just using my traditional hunting knife. There's enough meat on them to last through the winter, they get to about the same size as elk.
