    Yes it does! Especially on mule deer, but not so much on whitetails. I'm not quite sure why on that one, but they just don't seem to get as strong tasting or stinky. Way back when my dad was a young kid and they survived a lot on wild game, he would say that grandpa would say they are the best about mid-July when they have had a chance to fatten up really nice.

    BB forgot to add, yes that was a dandy buck you got this year in some beautiful country too I might add.
