that's what hunting season is for ;)

Yum! Sounds good, doc :) I have a similar recipe for venison meatloaf...good warm or cold or in sandwiches!

You can also use oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs as the "filler" and egg whites/milk to cement it all together. Meatloaf is one of those things it's really hard to screw up :p

Theres a season?
I thought they were like lobsters, you pick the one you want for dinner.

I tried something similar but I used tomatoes. I had a surplus of them from the garden and tried them in everything. Cooked it alot longer, 2 hours? It was a pretty moist. Looked like canned dog food, but was good.

Just thinking what about adding cheese? I live near WI.

sure man, you could add a little cheese. It would certainly make it more rich. perhaps you could top it with cheese

Doc, do you are anybody else know the how much protein, fat, carbs...etc.. are in deermeat?? I can get deer meat pretty much anytime and i love it.

I don't think any meat has carbs.
Venesion is pretty lean so not much fat. As far as protein, I treat it like read meat. Really just eat until I am full.

Dude I so love venison!!! It's relay lean! But I add alittle fat to help it cook up and taste... not so gamey.

Venision is not gamey. Its venision, not beef. I know people who add beef boulion to venision, you might as well eat beef, unless its a money thing.
Venision is dryer though, the texture will be differant in chilli. For me the chilli seems to break up more. Been thinking about making a spagehti(sp) sauce with.
I probably eat about 2 deer a year. Gonna have some steaks tommarrow.

never tried meatballs. I would have though it wouldn't stick very good. But I suppose with the egg and other stuff. I make venision chili a bit. Lots of steaks. Last year I had a ton of tomatos from the garden so I fried the venision real slow and low temp in sliced tomatos, very good. Salsa works too.
You know what really seems to taste like beef is carabo. Atleast the stuff I've had.
