:help: I did search but nothing came up on topics of eating bucks in rut or at least in the last year of possible post topics. I have been given, in name only at this point, a 7 month old boer buck approximately 60 pounds according to his owner, for meat. However, I am not getting across to her that the buck is in rut and I have no desire to eat him right now. And I can't seem to convince her that castration is an option I was more that willing to pay for. :frypan: (he has some huge ones for so little a goat) She keeps telling me that bucks are good to eat and wethers go to fat and not as good. Now I have eaten plenty of goat meat over the years both here and in Mexico, I have tasted old bucks and, despite the seasoning, I can still smell and taste the male. So, I am needing actually accounts on whether eating a young buck in rut is ok or do I need to wait until Feb when the rutting season is over or tell her to just sell the goat to someone who wants him for meat now? Thank you for any answers or opinions.
