    Thanks to Uwe for picking up the venison from the butcher. Not including Mike’s doe here’s the yield from my 2 bucks:



    By my math that’s 114.2 lb of meat.

    Anyone ever notice when you're hunting deer, you see lots of squirrels?

    Well guess what happens when you're hunting squirrels?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I should get some actual picture frames but the 2018 8-pointer is now up on my office wall next to the 2017 8-pointer and the 2015 9-pointer.

    You may want to double check your math.

    Wow, those antlers almost look like pin oak leaves.

    I made some venison jerky over the weekend using round steaks (slices of thigh) from the 8-pointer marinated overnight in Mojo marinade (citrus juice/garlic/etc). About half the batch is "wit" red pepper flakes and half is "wit-out". After 7 hours in the dehydrator at 145*F it reached pretty ideal consistency, a bit chewy without being hard or crunchy:







    24 oz. of raw steak yielded about 11 oz. of jerky, or about a 55% reduction in moisture. The ring-shaped piece had the 1" femur in the center, needless to say it shrunk dramatically.

    RTHQ last night at about 5:45pm:



    The deer were aware of my presence, didn't care. Out of season, in a dense residential/commercial area, at night, and they know an e-tron is not an acceptable weapon for the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

    Since Gawie is in town from South Africa, I asked for his help making Biltong using some of last fall's venison round steaks, trimmed but left as natural cuts. We marinated the meat in apple cider vinegar for 1 hours, then patted it dry and covered with kosher salt, black pepper, and freshly toasted and cracked whole coriander.








    It will be left to dehydrate at 35*C/95*F for 24 hours, then we will check consistency and give it more time if needed.

    After 23hr at 95*F:



    The thinner pieces are quite edible and tasty now, I know the South Africans say this isn't jerky but it sure tastes like jerky to me. Since there's no cayenne or chile pepper, and no sugar it's a strictly savory experience. As Gawie says "lekker".
