    Default Want to try.....

    Ok everyone,
    I have never eaten any whitetail, all I have had is this nasty a** muledeer here in So.Ca.
    Who might have some extra venison they might want to get rid of?
    I will pay for all packaging and shipping of corse, and toss in some extra if you want.
    Let me know if anyone could hook a brotha up.
    I have an extra set of press fingers I could toss in on the deal also.

    Hawg,
    A friend of mine had his brother send him some venison once, he packed it on dry ice in a foam cooler and sent it next day air.
    Cost ain't no big deal, good venison would be worth it.
    Let me know what ya think.

    I don't know how the mule deer was processed or how you prepared it. My wife is really picky about the flavor, (hence gamey taste) of venison. For it to make her approval we soak in a simple saltwater brine overnight. This really draws the blood out and removes the gamey flavor. Here is a flavored brine I plan to try sometime in the future, it seems like it would be pretty tasty. Also trimming every bit of fat because the fat also has the gamey taste. I can handle a mild gamey flavor but don't like a strong gamey flavor. If you know this already forget everything after Don.

    Most, if not all of the 'gamey taste' stems from one too many short cuts during proccessing, and especially there in Southern California's warmer climate. Number one, get him skined as soon as possible, wash down with white vinager and water, 50/50 mix and as you say remove ALL fat, and rewash with 100% white vinagar, when clean, cover with a good quality game bag, and let age, the older the deer, the longer the ageing process takes: 1-2 years = 24-36 hours, 2-4 years = 36- 48 at least, any older, hang 'em longer. The older the deer, the more conective tissue there'll be, which needs the ageing.

    I have had the venison from 30 years of hunting out here and tryed it 9 ways from Sunday. I think it's just what they eat out here, you know the old saying...you are what you eat. All the deer out here have to eat is crap....LOL

    The Muleys i chase taste fantastic. between Alfalfa and sage, they are some good eating. I'm really clean when it comes to the gutting and processing though.
