Is there anyone who only eats wild meat/game?

Where do you find it and how often do you eat it?
Why do you choose not to eat farmed meat?

I am quite interested in giving up farmed meat. I'm an enthusiastic and experienced carnivore grin but I have never been able to justify to myself (not interested in justifying it to anyone else) how I can eat so much meat when I know it's a) unhealthy to do so, and b) really bad environmentally.

I already eat free-range/organic meat, that's not the issue.

(Well, plus the odd KFC, that'll have to go wink)

Do you shoot at all?
We eat quite a lot of game as a by product of shooting though I draw the line at squirrel grin

I don't!
I do quite fancy squirrel....

I usually eat farmed meat from the butchers/tesco but have recently aquired a freezer full of lamb and venison that was slaughtered by DP. The venison he stalked and shot. And the lamb he got from a freind who keeps a few sheep.
I must say the taste and quality is second to none. Although you do have to wash the stray fur/hair off before cooking it grin

I probably tastes like chicken!

Ok, are you rural? Getting to know the local gamekeepers will point you in the right direction also farmers as they often shoot rabbits.

I don't eat it exclusively but I eat more game, when in season,than I do farmed meat. I eat ethically farmed meat but I'm still more comfortable with game.

I'm not rural. My neighbour opposite keeps ferrets grin and goes off to the cuntry to get his own rabbits. I'm thinking of asking him if I can buy/barter for a few.

Thunderduck, where do you get your game?
