    Can I make broth from deer bones?

    Or would it taste really gamey?
    I can eat deer meat if it's cooked properly and that weird taste is masked. But I don't think I could drink broth if it had that gamey taste.
    Would you cook it the same way as beef broth?

    GW: 135lbs or less
    Eating mainly paleo, but including a bit of white rice (don't call the Paleo Police!)

    yes just the same as you make beef broth. i dont find venison to have a wierd taste. i did have a bit of a stag once before it got hung for a week and it was a tad gamey. even for me. i prefer meat with flavour so i may be the wrong person to ask!

    I would say 'try it' and tell us how it tastes
    What on earth?! Take a walk on the wild side.

    i use all the sinewy ligamenty bits by the joints and it sets like thick jelly. i love it. i also slow cook the hocks in some water with a bit of garlic and some wild thyme and the water gels real thick when it cools down. my fave broth out. i joke about sawing up the antlers to make broth lol

    i make lamb broth when i get enough bones. i've used goat head too.

    bones is bones.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    get them to saw up the leg bones into smaller pieces. i saw mine or axe them. it gets the marrow out better and they will fit in the pot then.

    I always use the rib bones/meat for making stock

    if i can get the rib meat ie it didnt get a bullet thru it, i use it to make sausages as it is usually the only fatty part of the deer. i give the rib bones to the dog. and that is not waste dog tucker. i give them to him as he is so clever and as a reward. he is a deer dog.
