I can almost see the spots! That’s going to make for darn good eating. Take a nice section of back strap and marinate it in teriyaki over night, brush it with olive oil and grill it to medium, never over cook venison! Slice it up and your knees may buckle!
Were going to have some of the tenderloin for dinner tomorrow. No spots lol. It lost them long ago. The sidewalk is 6 foot wide. It was a decent sized deer. There is a doe where i hunt. Her fawn is still small and has it's spots. I think it was born late. I won't shoot it's mother. Not sure if it would survive on it's own. I hope other hunters give it the same respect..
We take all of the trimmings and front shoulders boned out to a butcher and have hotdogs and kielbasa made. It’s soooo good. I very rarely give any venison away because you have to know how to cook it. Do it wrong and it’s awful but when done in many of the right ways and there’s nothing like it. We also cook cubes in tomato sauce low and slow and dish it up on spaghetti and I don’t care who you are, it’s damn good.
I rarely need to hunt anymore. I have several friends that want to hunt and don't need or want the meat. I usually get 2-4 per year. What I can't use I give to a shelter or to someone I know is in a hurt for food. I still have most of one from last year.
Mostly I go out in the woods just to enjoy the woods.
Am sure you all have heard me talk of the Deer in the Black Hills. Great deer hunting. Both Whitetails and Mulies.
When driving at night in WY. I saw many many good size Mulie bucks eating grass along the roads. Bucks any hunter would be proud to display on his wall.
Have noticed lately. The small young deer. They'll slowly wander across the road. When I come up on them. They spook. They always turn around and head back. Won't get out of the way forward. Almost hit a couple that way. Need to make sure I steer in front of them.
