Default Texas Dall Sheep Meat

Anyone ever had Texas Dall Sheep Meat? I plan to make a sheep hunt either this fall or next spring and obviously the sport of it will lots of fun but I was curious as to if the meat was worth the trouble of processing it as well.

Also if you have an suggestions for places to hunt Dall Sheep in the Tennessee area let me know. I have a couple already that I'm going to research so if you have any feedback on them that would be great as well:

If you shoot a big old ram the meat is gonna be as tough as boot leather.

A young ram would be better and a ewe would be my choice as far as eating goes

Alot of folks hunt them for the head,if there's some hired help on the place they might make use of the meat.I attempted to eat some one time...took 3 beer to wash the smell out and the other 9 to forget what I just did! Cook meat on cedar shingle...when done throw meat away and eat shingle!I do like lamb chops though.

Most places recycle the rams as hog food. After trying one, I think that is the best possible use for it. Give back to nature.

Yeah... Sheep and Goats should not be considered food items in any hemisphere that has viable populations of cattle, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, deer or fish...[:'(]

I have shot them on my friends place in Texasfor the past 20 years. I don't think you will like it... But I always manage to find somebody who will take them before I shot them.... Some people do enjoy them....

You might consider saving some of the meat and brining it in salt water and then soaking it in apple or orange juice. There's lot's of recipes for brining meat out there. Brining can do a lot to improve the taste of strongly gamey meats. About the toughness...there's a ton of solutions out there too.
