A few years back I decided that I wanted to try deer hunting. The goal was to kill, clean, skin, and butcher the deer, followed by a grand party. I'm guessing that it was four years ago that I took

No cameras set up prior to hunting day? All the cool hunters do that, so they can check out the action before they get there.

Some Beast Feast Shots.

 

Top round and mystery bits getting ready for venison bourguignon:

Slicing the top round. These probably would have made pretty good steaks. Or maybe not.

Browned venison, carrot and onion ready for wine/stock. Sadly, no more bourguignon pics. (Well, I guess it's nothing to get sad about.)

Liver & Heart. I sliced the "muscle" parts of the heart, i.e., not the parts with the valves/tendons, and quick fried in a little oil. Sadly, we never got around to making the liver. It was donated to the wildlife fund.

I have to admit that the heart was quite good. It was chewy, but not gristley. It had a strong flavor, like an aged rib-eye.

 

Seared tenderloins (overcooked, but still moist and tender):

A plate of heart and tenderloin for appetizer bites.

Backstrap. I defrosted way more meat than I needed:

I believe the backstrap would be the NY strip/sirloin of a cow?

Deglaze with gin, add stock/peppercorns, reduce, add cream, don't focus:

I also defrosted 2 bottom round roasts, which were actually butchered nicely, but we had too much food. I gave those to Santos.

 

We also had spaetzle, leek tart, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, some leafy green "filler", and all sorts of good desserts that I had nothing to do with but eat.
