There is no better fuel for hunting than wild game. Lately, I’ve been relying on a combination of venison jerky and roasted pumpkin seeds. Go Carnivore Jerky Recipe.
Likewise, there is few a finer thing than enjoying fresh meat from a successful morning in the woods. We took these venison tenderloins and cooked them in butter on high heat to (a conservative) medium rare with nothing more than salt and pepper for seasoning. Be sure to allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes before eating. Serve with a steaming, hot cup of coffee.
Heart also makes for an excellent post hunt meal, which, brings up the last point of the day; There seems to be a real trend amongst Eastern/Midwestern/Southern hunters to use the gutless method for butchering deer. Let me be the first to point out the sheer amount of waste that the gutless method involves. Heart, Liver, Ribs, and flank steaks all get left for the buzzards. Think about that next time you are looking to save your self 5 minutes or less. (Western hunters get a pass on the gutless method since they are often packing out meat for many miles).
