A coworker's son shot a desert bighorn in TX and we helped butcher it out. I cooked some of the backstrap just like I do venison - hot and fast. Bush on some olive oil and granulated garlic first, then grill to medium rare. His old ram was fairly good eating; not as tender and tasty as a nice antelope doe, but much better than javelina. grin
