    I don't know about then but we eat the whole thing nowadays. It's cheap as and very tasty. It's available in the supermarket, although I'm on good terms with a pair of brothers who run a butchery whom also hunt so I get kangaroo, rabbit and goat from them.

    Buffalo and bison...the names get interchanged but American Buffalo is a type of bison (at least that's what I was taught).

    Here you go @Miss Lydia a duck picture from the Jax Zoo:

    They had a lot of different types of ducks. The blue billed ones were really pretty but too shy to get close enough for a photo.

    And because people associate FL and flamingos...

    Hi @kosan , Congrats on keeping your starter so long.

    Mine is only 1.5 years old and I keep a note on a "chicken blackboard" to remind me to feed it :) It will be 2 yo in December.

    I wonder what the record is among the Any Bakers posters on how long you have kept a starter going?

    Not really, it's a different sort of tender and leaner. Deer is less substantial than beef I think, whilst kangaroo is more...

    If that makes such...

    Deer is less red, maybe.

    Here in Wisconsin, I find that the venison is a darker, leaner meat than the industrial beef in the store, but it is a heartier meat. A lot of the flavor depends on what the deer are eating and how it was cared for after the kill. Not many people purchase venison from the store - unless you go to a specialty shop it simply is not available - so most is harvested from wild game. In WI, a deer harvested in the southern croplands will taste significantly different than the buck shot in the northwoods. Most of the venison I have had is the northern buck variety, :) Those southern deer are more corn-fed and the meat is a lot closer to beef than the acorn-fed venison of the north. And then we get into Whitetail vs. Black-tail vs. Mule Deer...

    See it's the opposite here the deer I have had (hunted, not farmed) whilst more lean and tender than beef has been lighter, less heavy iron taste than beef, whilst kangaroo is more. The deer I've had was almost sweet.
