    I do love moose but I'm not too sure about that pickled nose thing.  I also like caribou and bear and elk.

      Funny running into you here.
       
      Pickled moose nose is something I ate with a Cree guide years ago. I can think of a few things I prefer to moose nose.

          I think mouse nose would be better. If you like blubber you'll love pickled moose nose.

            I did try whale blubber (muktuk) once.  I could not swallow it.  Only thing I ever spit out in my life.  Nasty.  I'd rather eat mouse nose!

              Tried alligator jerky a couple weeks ago.  Tasted like jerky with lots of spice.
               
              I guess wild boar chops or bison burgers don't count as exotic.
               
              I'll leave the moose nose for everyone else.

                I'm a big fan of Bison and Elk.  Wild duck and goose when I can get it.  So much leaner and more flavor than the farm raised ones.

                  I like wild duck and goose but man what a pain to clean.  I spend hours with pliers picking out the remaining feathers and still never get them all.  So now it is strictly pre-dressed from the supermarket waterfowl for me.

                    I made a big pot of moose chili a couple years back, it was singly the best pot of chili I'd ever made. Other than that, I think the most exotic thing I've ever eaten was ostrich "Slim Jim" type snacks. Had quite a kick to it.

                      I was told I had bear once but suspect it was venison, regardless it was delicious. You don't find much exotic meat around here.
