How many of you use deer meat? We love it. I like having it made into hamburger. we use a lot of hamburger so this saves me alot of money. My DH used to hunt and goes occasionally but he is handicapped and it is harder for him to go now. My DS loves to hunt. He has gotten 10 so far and it isn't even shotgun season yet. He has been hunting a special season in Coralville as they needed to thin the deer.
He feeds his family on deer meat all year with all he puts in the freezers. I keep reminding him I need some hamburger! LOL He and my BIL process them themselves. My BIL is really good at dressing them! Nathan has kept the legs on a couple and brought them over for my DH to make jerky. My DH is so patient and makes the best jerky!! Nathan asked his dad to make some jerky for him and he did. But we ate part of it before he got to take home the rest! LOL
My SIL has some of theirs made into bologna and sticks. That's ok but I would rather have the jerky and hamburger. We eat alot of chili all year round and beefburgers etc. If they get a young one and they process it right it is so tender and deer meat is leaner and better for you than beef.
So what do you do with deer meat?
