Difference between "Loin" and "Tenderloin" ?

Does one of them have a more "game" sort of taste to it then the other?

Thanks for the link to the chart.

Interesting. I remember probably 12 years ago having a roasted pork (don't know which cut exactly) at a holiday party and thinking it really tasted gamey. It was not smoked but cooked in the oven.

The Loin or Backstrap is cut from both sides of the spine under the skin. The tenderloin is cut from both sides of the spine from inside the body cavity
