    Wow...those look amazing! Not to big on deer meat but I'd give those a whirl.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    deer jerky might be one of my favorite things to snack on. I make as much as I can with each deer I kill.

    yeah the guy who processes them for me did. I don't know the ratio, but I believe he put beef fat in there.

    I got into bow hunting last year. Biggest thing I have learned: it is hard

    Yup! My biggest issue so far has been knowing when to stand up. Too early and I fidget; too late and I spook. I need more practice. But I'm enjoying it. Switched to using a climber full time, which has opened up hunting a lot for me. Can't imagine going back. Summit Viper is awesome.
    Boom
  • GLWGLW Posts: 178

    yep.  I have a summit titan as I hate heights and this feels like an apartment hung on a tree.  Once you get your first deer with a bow you'll be hooked for life!

     

    Good luck FOF.

    Titan is awesome. Same as Vipee just bigger. But since I'm just over 160lbs I didn't need that room. Buddy has that model tho. Hard to beat anything Summit makes. I can't wait to get the first one with my bow. In SC there is no now season so I can use all day long, tho some locations call for my rifle.

    Good luck.  scent controll very very important for a bow hunt.

  • Too old to climb up a tree in a Summit or even hunt on the ground any more, but I have enjoyed deer meat forever. A deer jerky recipe i had good luck with and chewed on while in a tree stand.

    Mix together, for 1 lb of meat.

    2 tbsp. Salt
    1/2 tsp. pepper
    1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1 Tbsp. brown sugar

    Cut meat into 1/4 inch pieces, any length.
    Refrigerate in a covered bowl for 24 hrs. Dry with paper towels. Spread meat on a oven rack @ 150* oven for 4 to 6 hrs. Turn meat over during cook. I used this recipe on my LBGE @ 200* , took less than 4 hrs. Turned out great. Caution, if you are going to cook more than 1 lb of meat don't double the amount of salt.

    Beef fat is interesting. When making venison sausage I would typically use pork fat.

    I've always used pork fat for sausage. Man, I love deer onion sausage. Tasty stuff.

  • Venison meatloaf on the egg is now a big favorite.  Try your favorite meatloaf recipe with ground venison and cook for about an hour @350 (in pan the whole time).

    and digging the treestand talk here!!  pleasant surprise

  • FanOfFanboysFanOfFanboys Posts: 1,970
    @randallB I will def try that soon. Ha and we can create and OT thread just for stand and hunting talk. I also hunt turkey and wild pig as well as catfish and smallmouth bass. I just sold bass boat and I'm buying a new G3 (still deciding what floor plan I want, options, etc) and I'm going to start duck hunting next season.

  • How 'bout it! Man those look awesome. I have a deal set up with my buddies since 1) I have the BGE. And B) I have the big freezer. They kill it, I grill it! I have mastered deer burgers! Usually cook for a number of people at a time at cook outs so its:

    2lb processed deer burger
    1lb processed deer patty sausage
    Panco Bread crumbs
    Italian Seasoning to taste
    2 eggs 

    Sometimes get a little craft and stuff with bacon and cheddar... Cant beat it! 

    Looking for ways to try and make some deer jerky now.
  • GLWGLW Posts: 178
    Going to try this.
    When in doubt add more pepper.
