I'm a big fan of deer and elk and am looking for a good restaurant in Calgary. Does anyone have any suggestions?

        My B-I-L's father had a heart attack and high cholesterol. He was a hunter and changed just to eating elk as a red meat. He went for his annual check-up which included blood tests. A few days later the doctor asked him to re-take the tests as there had been a foul up. He did.
        The doctor called him in to his office and asked what he was doing and eating. He told him. The doctor said he had never seen such a significant drop in anyone's cholesterol levels and to keep eating the elk which is a very healthy meat from the wild as ot doesn't have any hormones, vitamins, drugs, etc.
