Yes I kept the heart and liver. I love them both. My mom would give me a spanking to this day if I did not take her the liver of the first deer I kill every year. She and my dad no longer hunt, but do expect the liver and a little deer meat every year. I have gave them the liver of the first deer I kill for so long now it is like a tradition in our family. Some of my friends will stop by and take them the liver and some meat too. They deserve it for taking us hunting when we were little. Now I am taking little ones hunting. Maybe one of them will bring me a heart or liver when I am to old to get it done.
nice buck you can't eat the horns plus this is Ca we don't have that much deer so don't pass anything up.Did you keep the heart?

I am not sure what he weighed after gutting. This was a pretty small deer so I would say the head, hide, and four legs weighed 30 to 40 pounds. So he probably weighed 90 to 110 as I drug him out. I will drag one up to a mile, if it is not all up hill by myself. I am 48 years old and work construction and am in pretty good shape. It is hard dragging them by yourself. I will skin and debone in the field if it is farther than a mile. You leave the skin, lower legs, bones includeing full rib cage, and guts in the field, just bringing out the meat. If I would have done that to this buck the pack would have weighed less than 50 lbs. I did not do it this time because it was only about a half mile to the truck and it takes me a little while to debone one in the field and keep the meat clean while doing it. I have used a wheel barrow to get them out before if there is a good trail. It works pretty good too although I have had some guys laugh at me for having a deer in a wheel barrow.
Congrats on the hunt . I would love to get something like that . I was buying Deer sausage from a Meat guy that was getting from a " farm " . Got me & my GF wanting more . I was wondering about the weight after gutting . getting one back to Vee hickle is one of my bigger concerns . Has anyone ever seen the " Deer " steaks that are for sale @ some of the " Mexican " markets ? They want 12 buck for a 8-11oz piece of a buck . And I am sure it's from a farm . Have not bought one yet . GF wants to . Andy
