Imagine how good deer would taste if it was farm-raised so the diet could be controlled to reduce the gamy taste.
I know of several venison farms within a half hour drive of my house. A few do bison, elk, and ostrich as well.
It’s not gamey at all. In fact, it’s a little fatter than the wild deer so you don’t have to cut it much or at all with other fattier meat for sausage, burger, etc.
There’s a restaurant in Cleveland called the gamekeepers lodge, and they serve, as the name implies, ‘game meet’…and lemme tell you - venison, bison, ostrich, elk, all those items are phenomenal when prepared correctly and raised right.
Also in Cleveland, there’s a bar called “Harry Buffalo” that does buffalo (bison) burgers and steaks, and I believe the claim is that it’s 1/3 the fat of skinless chicken breast.
