Took and 8-10 oz piece of Whitetail backstrap marinated in a rub of olive oil and a host of spices, a quick pan sear and roasted @ 425 for 10-13 minutes until barely 125° (medium rare).  Let rest for five or so...

Coupled that with a toss salad and roasted red potatos with olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper.

Damn fine vittles....

It sounds good. All I had was mini tacos.

Mine was harvested on November 11 and fresh but if you don't hunt or can't find the time, visit Blackwing.com.  They have venison, ostrich, elk, boar, etc.. mail order and it's quite good!  Can get pricey but it's not something you're eating every day.

I didn't bag this deer.  My SIL has two bucks in the freezer this season!  I get all the pleasure of eating the venison without all the BS of killing, cleaning and butchering!

After all he is sleeping with my only daughter!!!!!!!

The last few years have been low years for deer hunting. We lost hunting rights (due to land being sold by a neighbor) on 3/4 of the acreage we used to hunt. If it had not been for our younger son being in a hunting club we would've missed out on venison. Fortunately, he bagged a couple for us.

We have a small amount of huntable land on one corner of the property, and it has taken some tedious work by our son to get the deer to come into the area. It has paid off, though..... The wife has taken three this year so far....including an 8-point. Me, well....nothing yet.
We mostly have ours ground. We have a processor that does a great job.....he adds beef fat and it makes the best spaghetti I've ever had, using our home-grown and canned sauce.  :D

Last year we had an entire deer processed into jerky.....good stuff.

We have one on ice (bleeding it) right now. Some time this week (between cooking 70 pounds of lamb for the ag department at school) I plan to smoke a ham and a shoulder..... I might cook the straps in the dutch oven with bacon, mushrooms, garlic and onions.

Had a nice buck about 10 yards away running beside the car this late afternoon getting ready to chase another younger buck from his territory!  Lots of deer in the area but not huntable land.

Right now the big deal here is everyone who can is out in the ocean and Delaware Bay trying to catch stripers (striped bass). My wife's broker's husband caught a big old cow the other day and we ate really fresh striper two nights in a row for dinner. Fantastic.

A couple of weeks ago a friend gave me some Mako steaks...the fish had been swimming 18 hours prior...also fantastic because shark doesn't stay pristine for very long.

A great fall for free fresh fish. Sometimes it costs me a trip to the range, but hell, I like that too!
