Never had oysters, what are they like? Does location influence them that much?

Damn I need to learn how to make legit tamales. I did some asian fusion tamales a couple years back that were f‘n delicious, but I’ve never made them as they should be made.
The process is "simple" but damn labor intensive. For some reason, a couple decades ago she discovered that the secret to hers was using not just pork but deer meat. Haven't been hunting in forever, but for several years there I had extra motivation to bag a deer around Christmas time!
