I'm with Rooster. Elk steaks and elk burgers are delicious!
I grew up eating different kinds of wild game and I still do.
My favorite is venison. In my area that would be Whitetail Deer. I agree with Rooster on the backstraps, they are the best cuts on the deer.

Growing up, I had venison, rabbit, wild pheasant, and bear. Didn't care much for the bear meat.
Blue crab ? Does that count as wild game ?
If so steamed crabs for me is the absolute b
