    Dh got his first deer about a week and a half ago. He's quite proud, its his first bow kill, and he was the first one in this area to the check point. She was 120lbs and made 60 lbs of meat. We rec'd 39 lbs in burger and the remainder in steaks and of coarse 2 roasts. We have 2 sausages leftover from last year, so we felt that wasn't important this time around. He wanted something warm for lunch-so tonight I made up a batch of chili from a low carb recipe I found and its actually quite good. Its a bit thick for my taste tho, but he says its fine. I think I will send the whole thing with him tomorrow and tell him to share(it made 6 cups). Next batch isn't gonna be so thick, otherwise he will be sharing at work again.:)

    I've noticed that you and many other people in other threads call it "deer meat." Are Minnesotans and Wisconsinites (ie, Cheeseheads) the only people who call it "venison?"

    Cabin, we call it both venison and deer meat. Depends on who we are talking to. There are a few non hunters we know that don't relate to the word venison! :)

    Almostthere, congratulations to your Dh! The thought of venison chili is making my mouth water! I think I'll make some for supper tonight. :D

    Its venison sometimes here too. I guess after living with a 3 and 5 yr old and having to explain how things work a hundred million times a day, being descriptive becomes habbit. :)
