    Well I got a deer with my bow last night, and I saved the heart and liver. This morning I tossed them in the coop and the girls went crazy eating at it.

    It's funny to see chickens with beaks covered in blood haha

    When we process deer here, I have my DH bag scraps in small portions and put them in the freezer. Through out the year, I get out a bag and my dog gets first pickens then what is left over the chickens get. Nothing is wasted here. That goes for the fish too.

    Hmmm. Liver should have been cooked with onions. The heart should have gone into sausage.

    Have you thought about how you are going to process the bear when and if you get him?

    I believe Panner has some good receipes.

    My dog gets the liver and heart. The chickens get the rib cage. They do look funny with bloody beaks. They sure are enthusiatic about it too.


    I just give them a little chunk at a time though. There are already coyotes checking out thier run... I don't want to add to the attraction with a big piece of deer carcass in there.

    Congrats on your deer too!
