So does Bambi really taste that good? Any deer I've had was always chewy and had an unpleasant after taste...

Venison is an acquired taste

I'm curious to learn: How many meals would one of this size result in (approximately)? I find that meat in the shops is fairly expensive (i.e. I could be spending my money on better things, heh), so I'm curious as to how much money could be saved by hunting or acquiring meat this way (even though I doubt I could ever bring myself to kill an animal).

Sorry that I can't quite get my head round this (maybe it's all those handguns in your sig). I think that human beings are the only animals that commit suicide. Am I mistaken? Are there others? :huh:

Others do commit suicide. It isn't a uniquly human affair.

How bad did it mess up the truck? And (this has nothing to do with the topic) Peterbilt, Kenworth, Mack or Volvo?

Then it was prepared incorrectly. After butchering the venison is chilled and ALL the superficial fat is trimmed - this is the source of most of the gamey taste. Next it should be soaked in salt water before cooking - this washes out the rest of the gamey taste. Cook slowly - brazing, slow roast, slow BBQ, smoking etc. and it'll be very tender. Baste often where appropriate. Makes a fantastic stew, chilie or burger.

Not at all - he was driving his Kenworth W900....think: Smokey and the Bandit, but new and with a big tubular steel "deer catcher" up front. Necessary because there are >50,000 deer-vehicle collisions in Michigan every year.

That's truly something to be thankful for. The last time a deer tried to commit suicide in front of me, he killed himself and my car.

Should be pretty tenderized after its encounter with a big rig ;)

I am glad that the truck and himself are fine. My parents were on their way home from Kentucky lake Tuesday and smacked a buck while running 50 miles per hour. 2004 Chevy Silverado, and that did $6000 in damage. I have hit 2 myself, one in a 2004 Chevy S10, and another in a 2006 GMC Jimmy. Totaled them both. I love deer meat, but hate the animal itself :p
