* There is domesticated game meat, which comes from animals raised in farms and fed mainly with corn and cereals. However, the taste of wild game meat is different from the domesticated one, precisely due to the fact that wild animals feed mainly on acorn - a type of Achene (dry indehiscent fruit), consumed by wild boar, red deer, roe deer and wild mouflon, which gives a special and specific flavour to the meat.
