Have never seen it fresh, just looking at a image of the Bison he is quite a ferocious looking beast.
Yes, more expensive than beef, which is why I got the lean cut since its the cheapest. Tastes slightly sweet and has a minerally overtone due to the high iron content. You should give it a try, its pretty good. Bison is also always grass fed too.
I read a book on the Lewis and Clarke Expedition and their favorite part or the Bison was the Hump and tongue since it contained the most fat. Most of the men were eating up to 5,000 calories of meat a day, probably because most game was so lean!
