grilled caribou tenderloin

My 10 year old great nephew shot his first caribou on Tuesday. It was a small one but not a bad first one. The rifle was a Remington model 700 .243 bolt action. It only took one shot.


He and his mom, my niece, came to visit us a couple days later and brought uncle Griff a backstrap and a tenderloin. Here's the cleaned backstrap.


And here is the tenderloin I grilled tonight.

Re: grilled caribou tenderloin

I assume caribou does not taste like chicken What a great adventure for a young man and a good lookin' dinner too. He is lucky to have such a wonderful place to hunt and an Uncle who is a great "Grillmaster!"

Re: grilled caribou tenderloin

I'm no expert, but if I was a betting man, I'd bet it tastes like caribou! Tell him great shot Griff!

Re: grilled caribou tenderloin

Hey Griff. Did you cook it hot and fast like beef? Looks killer! That boy looks big for a 10 year old. Kudos to him for the great shot and for sharing with Uncle G.

Re: grilled caribou tenderloin

I agree with BBQBUZZ, what a great adventure. I remember the first deer I shot; we grilled up the loins that night and it was fantastic.

Re: grilled caribou tenderloin

WOW. 10 years old, and one shot. One shot, one kill. How cool is that. That boy will never go hungry. Great looking plates. We can only use shot gun on deer around here. (12 gauge slug) so it kind of messes up the meat. Good thing I have a pal that does the bow thing.

Re: grilled caribou tenderloin

The bipod on the end of the stock and shooting prone makes a huge difference on accuracy.

Re: grilled caribou tenderloin

Used to deer hunt with a Remington 700 series .243 or .306, whatever my older brother did not take. Great looking cook. The tenderloin looks delicious.
