The day before yesterday one of my friends invited me to an unusual party. It was a deer party. About 20 people got together to eat deer for dinner.
My friend is learning to hunt, and on Sunday he caught his first deer. We had deer shabu-shabu, deer nabe, and deer hamburger steak. Hokkaido deer has very little fat, and is quite tasty.
Some people say deer has a strong smell, but we didn’t notice such a smell.
By the way, deer meat is called venison. In Hokkaido there are more than one million deer, and they are causing problems for farmers. I think it is better for Hokkaido people to eat deer than to import meat from other countries. Hokkaido venison is delicious, cheap, and good for the environment.
It’s tasty Eco.
