Okay, what kind of critter is that gorgeous meat from and what cut is it?

It's from the loin (back strap) of a Mule Deer.

Did you kill Bambi's mother?

Looks delicious, S&P!

Wow, that looks amazing. Perfectly cooked, too, IMO.

I have the greatest respect for hunters. They hunt sparingly, and use all of the animal carefully. Nothing is wasted of these.

I understand many hunters do this to feed their families during difficult times, and even in good times when they can save money from the groceries.

I was treated to deer meat one time. I don't know of the recipe, but it was cooked in a crockpot and OH!!! It was so very good!

I must say, however, I prefer my meat to be pre-passed away. If I had to hunt to get meat, I'd be a vegetarian. I don't think I could shoot an animal.

With love,
~Cat

I thought this article on the "etiquette" of shooting in the UK might amuse those of you who hunt in the USA. (Shooting as a social activity - "Downton Abbey" here we come.)

New To Shooting - Read our Advice on Driven Shooting Etiquette & Tips - GunsOnPeg

Obviously, it doesn't apply to a farmer or one of his friends taking a pot-shot at a rabbit or hare for dinner.

That was pretty amusing and thorough, but I still don't know what a peg is or what the peg numbers are for.

Its just a marker. As in a peg in the ground.
Peg - The numbered stick indicating the position of a shooter at a covert shoot or partridge drive.

Interesting article Mad Cook. And amusing also. I dare say it may be a bit formal for the American hunter.

Nice looking venison S&P.

We don't have Mule Deer but we've got Whitetails a plenty.

I don't hunt as much as I have in the past and never really wanted to hunt Bambi. Why? Too much work involved processing the harvest. I let others hunt my property and they share as much as I want with me.

I've hunted waterfowl but as I get older getting out in the cold to bag them becomes less desirable.

Now the one thing I'm interested in is a Turkey. That is one smart bird. (Not the domestic ones) Those buggers have outsmarted me for years now. I see them all the time except when it's hunting season and I'm hunting them. And if I have they have shown me that I'm one step behind them.

Cat, I can see your view. But deer can cause a lot of damage to crops and when the population gets out of hand hunting is the best way to handle the situation. People get good food to eat and deer don't suffer from starvation.

I'd also like to recommend that folks read the real Bambi by Felix Salten published in 1929. It's a good read and not the Disney version.
