road-kill

I was checking facebook updates this morning, getting ready to go do a day's work, when I got a phone call from an acquaintance... There's a fresh road kill over here, someone just hit a deer, it wasn't here yesterday...

I told him .... I'm on my way...

Fresh deer meat is mighty desirable.... You can't purchase anything like that... Go to the Walmart Super-Center and pick up a steak that's been fed chicken manure, and growth hormones... Sometimes, I can taste that stuff... And what they do to hamburger... After reading Toxin by Robin Cook, I was put off store bought meat for a month or so...

Anyway... I got to the carcass, the back end of the deer was clearly a dead loss.... but it was a brand new kill... threw that baby in the back of the truck!


Doesn't bambi look tasty!

Getting bambi back to the house, I lost no time getting the carcass processed...






Yeah, it's a bloody mess, but I'm quality control!










Does it look like food yet?







How about now...

This is a plate full of butterfly steaks (tenderloin) I've seen entire deer killed where the hunter took nothing but the tenderloin!
With our deer explosion, you hear some insane stories about 5 deer in the freezer, and the hunter still out there looking for more...



Butterflies in the pan... Mighty tasty! Some good eatin there!






Pot of ribs... Just add barbque sauce! Yummy!






Check it out... several meals ready for the freezer.

Who's coming over for dinner?

Awesome! It's probably just me but it looked like food from the first picture of bambi in the grass! Nice job - hope it tasted as good as it looked.

Wow! Quite the way to fill the freezer. I'm surprised you can do that. In Montana if you picked up road-kill out of hunting season or in hunting season w/o a permit you would face a huge fine. I've always thought it was a horrible waste.
I know what you mean about meat. We get our grass-fed beef from my parents. I can smell the "bad" things in store bought meat.
If we didn't I could easily go off meat.

@Laurence and Sidney Pitt... I actually was stopped by the police once, And after checking for bullet wounds, finding none... said go on... Totally read that Robin Cook book!


@ Ray... Are you insane? The dog can have the parts I couldn't eat...

Looks like it was your lucky day. Grocery bill should be less, what with all that meat that you don't have to buy. What a plus!
