    JerzeyJoe,
    For my CFS I use the backstrap of the deer and some parts of the hindquarters. I cut them about 1 inch thick and package them into vacuum sealed bags, each weighing 2 lbs.

    When preparing the CFS I season each one with seasoning salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and paprika. That seasoning that Jim JEBar uses looks good too. I then pound the heck out of it to tenderize it. I also mix some seasoning into the flour.

    Then I beat a couple of eggs and mix with milk. I dip the steaks into the egg/milk, then into the seasoned flour, back into the egg/milk, back into the flour and then into the skillet. You know it's done when the steaks turn light brown and float. Remove, Drain, Smother is cream gravy and enjoy. :ready:

      Normally in Michigan you can have bait piles in deer season. A deer was found in Michigan a couple of months ago with Chronic Wasting Disease (Think Mad cow) and all feeding or baiting is no longer allowed in Michigan. The reason is that multiple deer could feed off of the piles and spread the disease by simply touching noses. Actually, this is another economic impact on the state. Many growers of carrots and sugar beets, sell most of their harvest for deer season.

        Well the Gods smiled upon me and I was able to take a nice 8 point on Monday morning. He's now at the processor being made into steaks and chili/stew meat. Can't wait to make some deer chili and carne guisada. Anybody else have any luck?

              As the late great comedian Lewis Grizzard used to say..."it sure would be a lot more interesting out there hunting...if the deer had a rifle too."

                based upon a career in NC's prison system where I spent way, way too many hours in pursuit of fleeing felons, "interesting" may be an accurate term but I can assure you it is a major understatement

                      Joe,
                      I have no idea what he weighed. I'd guesstimate his field dressed weight to be about 100-120 lbs. These deer in the Texas Hill Country are quite small due to their extremely high population numbers. For instance, I hunt on 80 acres and have seen up to as many as 20 deer in one sitting. I'm lining up friends right now to harvest does to thin the herd a bit before they begin starving.

                      This deer was a 4.5 year old. If we were to get to 6.5 he might have had more body mass. We're also in the middle of a drought and things are pretty tough for the deer right now.

                      I'd love to get some of those big bodied bruisers y'all have but I'm afraid the heat in Texas would be too much for their mass.

                      That's a really nice buck in your pic. He looks to be in the 3.5 to 5.5 year of age range. Just right...really thick, heavy body mass....lot's of sausage.

                          Bow season in Kansas started Sept 22nd I believe, but it was too dang hot for me to be out there! It's cooled down now, and with the rut right around the corner, I'm seeing more deer movement. Here's the best I've seen on camera so far...naturally, not during the day! George in K.C.

                            the rut is wide open in these parts and deer/vehicles collisions are very common .... right now around here driving at daylight and around dark can be dangerous this time of year but during the rut that can be true any time of day
