Lean meat

“Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage”

Woody Allen

Whitetail deer season has arrived, and I’m off for a couple of days of hunting with my brothers, nephew and niece in the Shell Lake area. I have both an either-sex tag and an antlerless tag, so I’m hunting for both a tender doe and a trophy buck. Chances are I won’t get the monster buck, but the deer population is healthy so there shouldn’t be a problem bringing back some meat. We ran out of the 2006 wild game a couple of months ago and I’m getting tired of the flare-ups from BBQing beef from the store … even the lean beef is much more fatty than deer.
