I just wanted to share with you all that I just had my season's first back straps. My step son bow hunts and the season opened yesterday. I was at work and he called, requesting my assistance in tracking a deer he shot late in the day. I told him I couldn't leave and later he called for lights as his batteries had drained as he followed the blood trail. I arraigned for him to pick up some good lights and he was off.

Later he found the deer and got it home. Today we skinned it and butchered it. It is too warm to hang it very long. Which leads me to the back straps. To anyone who has never had the pleasure, you should. They are the most tender parts of a deer. They are not very large, but are fantastic. After cutting up the deer, I took out the trash and he set to cooking them.

He had sliced them into medallions and put them in butter and salted them. They almost melted in my mouth. Boy do I love this season when one of us connects with the first deer. I just wanted to share while I had the taste still on my tongue. Mmmmmmm.

Envious ... Glad you enjoyed them.. tuesday of next week (pending thursdays outcome) i will be pulling back at a elk with my Hoyt bow.. How many deer will your son go after in one season? I do a elk and three deer.. Usually only end up with the deer.. The Elk are tricky when you need to be that close..

Reading that required me to go get something absorbent to put under my mouth. Way to much drool.

Glad you got some good eating. Bet there's no leftovers...

I hardly ever go hunting, but deer are plentiful here. Been a long time since having backstrap & tenderloin, and ya's making me think about hunting some this year!

yea, I haven't had them in some time now either, my brother is a meat cutter and would cut deer during the season, we'd be eating them as soon as he cut them off, now my mouths watering , thanks for sharing !!!!

It is about time for my neighbor to go hunting again. He usually brings us some venison. I have a screwed up shoulder and I am afraid to try to draw my bow. I really don't want a face-full of archery equipment if my shoulder buckles.

How many deer will your son go after in one season?


He could get four if he tags out for bow and gun. I only gun hunt and have a regular tag and two doe permits.

If all goes even half well, we will need a chest freezer.

I hope you get the elk.
