Okay, so thanks to this thread, I was driving along today and spotted a dead deer at the side of the road and I Sooooooo nearly stopped and went back for it. Only - A303 with practically non-existent hard shoulder is an accident magnet. Also no bags or knife in the car. Pity because it looked really fresh and was off the road and down the ditch as if it got knocked silly and expired while it was lying down.
I'm not normally one for roadkill, though I've enjoyed the fruits of the local rally sections, but that seemed like such a waste, I think I may have to travel prepared in future.
Deer is soooo lean, and the animals are sooo small, roasts cook up dry and baseball sized, and steaks/chops are 2 or 3 bites each. Hubby is a hunter, and we have all the venison ground into hamburger and made into sausage and pepperoni. It's so lean, our butcher adds pork fat when he grinds it. We do request larger cuts on bear, elk or moose if he's lucky enough to get one.
