Opening Day Buck

Not a trophy, but I'm happy to have one after 2 years of no luck.

A big liver, so I'll have to investigate if I can make jerky out of it. That would be some lean venison jerky.

Montana what Model and caliber of Rifle did you take it with? What was the distance? You get extra points if it was a Remington 700!

Some years you buy your meat.

Other years the freezer is full of venison.

It was a Remington 700. Stainless, with Synthetic stock. I bought this a few years ago, and it's sighted in at 2" high at 200 yards, so it's got legs with the 7mm Mag cartridge.

Shot was an easy one. <100 feet. Buck kicked up once, flopped towards the road. Last one several years ago, it was down a steep hill and took me and my buddy an hour to drag it up the 250 yards. Glad not to repeat that, especially since I was alone this time.

So far the dog is enjoying the deer the most. I sliced up some of the meat alongside the ribs that I will jerky tomorrow as I remove the hide and start butchering it.

Liver is big. After some research this looks good:
VENISON LIVER

1 Deer Liver - skinned and sliced
1 Cup Flour
2 Large Onions
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil
1 Cup Rose Wine
1 Cup Water

Roll Liver in flour. Heat oil in frying pan. When oil is hot, fry liver for about 2 minutes on each side. (Don’t over cook). Remove liver from frying pan and discard oil. Then put liver back in the pan and add wine, water and onions. Salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer on low heat until onions are clear, approximately to hours.

Serves 4 to 6 people.

Any game taken legally (fair chase) is a trophy, you can't eat horns. I've used that same basic recipe and it doesn't get any better then that, the only addition I make is to add the heart. I usually cut it up and soak it in some salt water before cooking it.

I'm now reading about cooking the heart. Some say its the best. Last deer the heart was hit, and the liver was lost as we dragged it up the hill. Since this is a small deer nothing is being wasted.

My other is a 30-06. Ive had it nearly 30 years. An excellent rifle both are.

Neighbor shoot an 800 lbs moose last year with his Ruger M77 30-06. Sounds like to light a round, but if you hit the right vital, they all get it done.
