    edible part of the deer

    I know that meat from the deer is not wasted by any hunters.



    but what about the other edible parts? I just tried moose heart for the 1st time and boy it was good!

    so what part of the deer do you also harvest? (next to the meat).

    I checked liver and heart. I used to eat the liver but lost the taste for it. I generally have some one who wants the liver and heart so I save them.

    Liver and kidneys.
    Fried up with bacon, eggs, sausage and tomatoes to make a traditional Hunters breakfast.
    I don't get the heart 'cos with a rifle (which is all I can hunt with here), thats what I aim for and it is normally a bit of a mess

    Use the heart for fajitas, liver for braunschwieger. Tried the tongue once, and it just wasn't worth the hassle for no more that you get.

    I only keep the venison, the 'yotes can have the rest.
    An "archer" tries to see how far away he can get from his target and still connect. A "BOWHUNTER" tries to see how CLOSE he can get to his.

    If it looks like crap, smells like crap, tastes like crap, lies like crap; it’s more than likely a politician from Illinois.

    Heart is great. Only had liver once or twice.

    I have heard that venison liver is alot "tamer" than beef liver and is a great way to introduce liver to someone that has never tried it.

    Other parts.

    Other than the meat, I have eaten the heart, liver, and tongue. All were just fine. Elk heart is way better than deer heart though.

    Never tried anything but the regular meat one would take. My Dads buddy always asks me for the heart and liver. He always asks, I either always forget or just dont have anything to carry them back in for the guy.

    I dont eat it but the liver and heart make great catfish bait. It is also good for teaching your pooch to blood trail !

    I use to eat deer liver until I saw deer infested with liver flukes. Now I only take the heart, I stay away from brains or anything that is part of the central nervous system, CWD and like diseases can be spread to humans from them.
    USUALLY THE HUNTERS THAT WERE NEVER ANY GOOD AT HUNTING WILL SHOOT A SPIKE.they just dont know any better and never will amount to anything .......sproulman
    I think meat hunters is another name for "Bad Hunter" or "Low Patience Hunter"....grfox

    Up to date, its actually been tested that CWD cannot be transferred to humans, at least through eating an infected animal.

    No doubt, hands down. Even my wife thinks fresh deer liver with onions is top shelf.
