i was talking to a hunter and he told me that he discards the internals.   a pig or cow most of it including the internals is used.  So is there something special  that a deer can not be all used?

I'm sure early settlers and the Indians used every single part.

Can't see why not. IIRC you could take organs and dry them out to make baskets, using bones for support.

Do you know the difference between beer nuts and deer nuts?

Beer nuts run about $2.75 per package.

Deer nuts are under a buck.

There are some nasty looking glands (lymph nodes) located in the shoulders that are supposed to be discarded.  I suppose they could still be used for something, medicine maybe.

OP, do you have a hankerin' for deer penis or something?

I don't think the antlers qualify as edible by any reasonable definition.

Thinking of making deer head cheese or deer scrapple?

Look, here's the real test:  if you turn it into poop, it was food.

Muscle? Food
Blood? Food
Organs?  Food
Hooves/antlers/horns? Boy, I really hope so, otherwise that's gonna hurt.
Corn?  Fuck no.

Why would you though, unless you were starving?

I'll eat the liver and heart any time though

I'm good with liver and heart though.

just curious. i have eaten almost every part of a cow and pig.  pig ears and intestines are favorites. also tripe and oxtail.
Link Posted: 10/4/2017 9:16:46 PM EST
Yeah, pretty much. Especially with modern sanitizing capabilities. Whether or nor ir taste good is a different question.

Liver and heart if not bruised by the shot, sure.  The rest of the internals get bagged and I ferry them out in the woods for the  coyotes.

I was in the woods with my retriever (may she rest in peace), and she found and brought an antler to me. I took it and noticed something funny. It had been made into a weed smoking device!

Forest hippies in the middle of nowhere got high and forgot their pipe.

Liver, heart, and kidneys come home with me.
Rest of internals don't even make it to the deer checking station.
The brain, eyes, throat, and other assorted bits go to the dogs.
Antlers either go to dogs or used for rattles or something.
Bones get tossed back into the woods.
Hide goes to a friend of mine who make stuff out of it.

Pork and Beef are raised under certain requirements to meet the standards for sale to the public.  What they ingest, digest and take in is significantly more controlled vs wild game.  For instance the liver.  It's used to filter toxins.  Farm raised beef and pork take in much less toxins because they are raised in controlled environments.  Deer on the other hand?  Who knows what the fuck they ate and took in.

The meat is gamier, but other than beef tripe, I've never had any use for the GI parts. I will keep the heart, liver, and kidneys for eating.

I was told by the county extension agent that except for polar bear (lethal amount of vitamin A), liver of all North American game animals is good to go, unless the animal is sick.

But if the animal is sick, I'm not eating any of the flesh anyways and the DNR guys won't count it against my tag if I bring it to them for testing.

I am sure most of it could be eaten if you cook it with the right spices or if your are starving. Give it to a Chinese guy and he'll figure out a way to make a delicaticy out of anything.

When you break it down Western Civilization isn't much different then the rest of the world went it come to food. Nothing really get wasted, we just process the scraps and repackage/advertise it as other things. Hotdogs, bolognie, Jello, ect.

On a side note, there is a Vietnamese restaurant nearby my area that I hear serves cow penis. One of these day I going to get drunk enough and give it a try.

I haven't killed a deer in a few years, but I used to do it somewhat regularly. I hunted public land, in Texas.

Sometimes that involved a hike of 2 or 3 miles in. 2 or 3 miles out. Uphill and downhill several times. I would, in later years, discard everything I didn't want to carry out. Guts, hide, lower legs, rib bones, lower spine, liver.

Just a guess, but how far does he have to move his deer carcass?

Then again, maybe he or his family won't eat offal, so why bring it home?

Can it all be used? Probably, but if he's not gonna, why drag it home?
Link Posted: 10/4/2017 9:58:10 PM EST
Anything is edible if you are brave or drunk enough.
Link Posted: 10/4/2017 9:59:01 PM EST
I don't eat internal organs (intestines, spleen, stomach, kidneys) or trimmings of domestic animals (AKA hotdogs, bologna).

Deer gut  pile = hotdogs (variety meat)
No thanks.

Worms/buzzards/maggots gotta eat too - I'm sure they welcome the leftovers.

Seems better than them transporting a cow to processor, then sending it to your grocery, them wrapping it in plastic, and then someone taking it home and it end up spoiling in the fridge because they didn't like the looks of it when it was ready to cook...

I had a dog that dragged home a deer a little at a time, and ate it a bit by bit.  The only parts not consumed were the teeth and hooves.

I don't generally mess around with organ meat.  But I do eat the heart of every buck I kill to honor the kill and absorb his life force

OP said "eat" but the Indians didn't eat all the buffalo, the "used" all of the buffalo. Big difference

I think I could find a use for all of the deer. Not gonna eat it all though

Fried deer heart with pan gravy is phenomenal.

Liver isn't too bad either. Knew some coonass that made boudin and dirty rice with it and it was amazing.

I hear the marrow is pretty good too but their bones are so damn small, compared to a cow, so I don't know it'd be worth the trouble.

I remember when I was yonger (11 or so) my friends and I were sitting around the backyard fucking around with our BB guns. Dad walks out with some venison sausage and offered some to us. My friends never had venison so they went after it without asking what it was. Without blinking my dad said, "deer dick." The looks on their faces was priceless. I keeled over laughing. We're in our mid-30s now and when grilling, I always refer to any sausage as deer dick. No one else gets a laugh out of it but us.

depends on how hungry you are and how big the deer is.


i suspect no one can eat a moose in one sitting, thats the biggest deer. small dear, who knows.
Link Posted: 10/4/2017 10:58:54 PM EST
Remember that pigs and cows are put down with the intent to butcher. A deer is normally shot with the perfect shot being a double king and heart shot and the impact normally damages the liver.

How much else is edible?

I've cut the long bones in half and tossed them into the stockpot when making soup and it does add that special something to it.
