Some of the finest game meat available in the US, although I've not put any bighorn on my table yet.

I had the meat from my mountain goat made into Thurenger(sp) sausage. Did not last long. Mountain goat is true goat. Antelope not really a goat. Antelope, Pronghorn, are a species unto themselves having a flavor unlike venison. MTG

I have had a few made into jalapeno cheese sausage, good stuff, almost anything is good with cheese and jalapeno in it.

Had antelope (roast/tenderloins) for the first time last night since my 12 yr old son and I tagged out last weekend. Wife & kids approved...so I'll be putting in for antelope rags again next year.

I really like antelope, and I've never had a bad mule deer buck either, even the great big ones. Obviously field care, cleaning, aging are the keys.

Yep. And they're not even an antelope, either. I read that their closest living relative is the giraffe. The reason that they are so speedy is that there used to be an American Cheetah (although may not have been closely related to the African cheetahs).

Have shot a few (12), and they all sucked worse than eating the azz out of a menstrating skunk.
Shot, skinned, deboned, and on ice very quickly.
Had burger and summer sausage made out of the last 4. I use the burger to make jerky.
It's the best. Guys at work want me to sell them pounds of it. Nope, Im stingy.

My buddy And I got two apiece in SD a few years ago. The temps were in the high 80's so we got them cut up and on ice quickly. Aside from being a bit chewy, the flavor of all of them was very mild. IMO milder than whitetail.
