I've never seen a reindeer being skinned, but I've eaten reindeer meat and it tastes superb, IMO. My parents didn't like it, cause they said it didn't have enough taste. :roll: It tastes salt, but not too much. It's perfect! :biggthump Just a thought.chris said:Thanks Andy, will try that.
:shock: Have you seen the reindeer skinning / Sami pics link on the webpage link you put up on your reply - is that bloody or what, looks a bit too hardcore for me, arggghh might give that a miss, I'm not a young man anymore.
Sorry, I didn't mean salty, but only a little tip of salt... This was reindeer fresh from the freezer and then cooked... My dad got it from a friend who had shot it in Lapland I think, but not sure... :?: :biggthumpViking said:I guess that you have eaten dried reindeer meat then, reindeer meat taste verry good but it´s not mormally very salty.
Good point mate but then the cost means maybe you put up with a few teething problems (around half the price of going with ray mears)chris said:Bill, If I was wanting to do some expedition/course stuff, as an exped/mountain leader myself I would make sure I was not on a companies first trip, never as good in my experience IMHO.
You might be right, I think I´ve also geard something about that rhe sami people used to eat what was in the reindeer stomah and there was always reindeer moss. But I am not sure about this.jamesdevine said:I thought Reindeer moss was ediable so long as it was part diegested by the Reindeer. Or am I mixing it up with something else.
Also Chris check out BearclawBushcraft they have a trip to Sweden coming up.
