Within 5 minutes, she had it strung up hanging from her kids swing set, and was skinning and gutting it.
When it was reletively parted out, she asked what I wanted to do with it. I told her I had a smoker and being as I had little freezer space, I just opted to make jerky.
She was really mad that I wanted to jerk the tenderloin as well, but I did, it was my dog gone deer!
I spent the next 2 or 3 days cutting it up and smoking it.
I split the whole thing with her. She offered to let me store it in her auxillary fridge.
Every time I came to visit, it seemed her four children were always on the sofa munching jerky.
At one point I went to the fridge to get some out of my stash.
Can you guess it?
Yeah, it was all gone, I barely got a bag of it.
