 Today is the first day of archery season here. My husband is out and has 2 doe tags and 1 buck tag.

 

Do you eat deer meat? If so do you have any special recipes you use?

 When my husband gets a deer we always have it made into mostly bologna with cheddar cheese in it. My husband and children both like the tenderloin, which I do not. We all eat deer jerky.

I love deer, love to use it in place of beef in recipes

 Last year my husband made deer tenderloin in the crockpot (and even though I do not normally like it) I have to admit it was good =)

 We have never really used it in replacement for beef but I am sure using it in like beef stew or something would be good.

I cook venison the same way I cook beef, but usually with extra fat (bacon tastes GREAT with venison) or liquid because the venison is so lean. Whatever we grind is mixed 50/50 with ground beef for the same reason.

 I bet my husband would love deer chili. I will have to get him a recipe =)

I had a venison burger one time, and I loved it.  I was in middle school, and we were visiting extended family in Missouri for Thanksgiving.  The day before Thanksgiving, one of my great-uncles arrived with freshly ground venison patties.  He had killed and processed the deer himself.  I can't remember how it tasted to me, but I do remember how much I enjoyed it.  I haven't had venison since then, but I'd love to have it again someday.
