Sometimes yes and sometimes no. You just have to try it.

Agree with Bil, a lot as to how venison tastes just like beef depends on the condition of the animal and what they have been eating.

These are pampered WT. Fed corn and protein year round. They share a pristine environment with just a few cows to keep them company. Predators and hogs all gone as theyíre shot on site.

Was it a mature buck or a doe? Was it killed during the rut or post rut? What it was fed year round won't change the texture or taste if it was a buck killed post rut.

Love Bill, but I doubt he's been within a mile of any deer.

I wouldn't eat any venison given to me unless I saw it from shot to freezer

The deer were killed a few days ago, been on ice since. The meat is good. Iíve got a freezer full from this ranch (this season) and itís delish. I received them quartered so donít know the sex, but the big one is probably a big buck as it is much bigger than the other deer in the ice chest.

Wrong. I've shot and dressed several. Have my own meat grinder. Haven't shot one in several years.

Iím happy to take meat from a good buddy. Iíve had two buddies bring me deer this season. The first was a beautiful Axis spike. Would you turn that down?

If I had to choice for eating then I'd go with the younger venison. Sounds like you have a trusted nice buddy supplying you, so get busy cutting and grinding. I need to thaw some out to cook as freezers are full and no room for fish and off deer season fare.

We feed protein year-round+ corn September thru February. Our mature deer are built like steers early on. All of our early season deer have inches of fat all over their bodies. Post rut, not so much. Mature bucks post-rut have lost 25% or more of their healthy body weight and have almost -0- fat. When there is almost no fat and the remaining tissue has turned pink from all the rutting and running, they don't taste nearly as good as they did in October and November.

Ive eaten them from their first year to so old they didn't have an intact tooth left in their mouth, both bucks and does. Ive never noticed much of a difference in any of it. Take care of it correctly and prepare it well and it will be good to go. I ate both steaks and grind out of all of the older ones, no issues no bad taste and no tuffness.

I would think the meat would all be good. Especially if making sausage and hamburger. Tenderized steaks good to go.

Gave some to a struggling deer hunter one year. He said too tough, gonna give it to a passin by bulldog. FYI, all my meat is mature.


Recently got a gym membership, strange folks! I like to show up the roid zombies with my full motion curls with the 55lb. bells. Not their cheater short stroked light weights. It's holarious.
