I rate them in this order
1 - Moose
2 - Elk
3 - Deer
4 - Antelope
5 - Bear
6 - Big Horn Sheep
I have only had bear & sheep once and really enjoyed them. I did not place them higher on the list because of only trying it once. My list is based on an average with being able to test more than one animal or trying more than one piece of meat.

Moose
Elk
Deer (any species)
Caribou (sausage only)

Don't eat Antelope, maybe cause I had to eat so much of it as a kid, never did like it.
