I have a surplus of deer in the freezer from last year. My wife was pregnant (had 4th child in June) and when she is pregnant she won't eat deer, she says it smells and tastes different so I don't go through it as fast. Last year we made over 100 pounds of brats and Italian sausage which i enjoy. when we grill ill throw a 4 pack on and I eat those. Ive given several away too. I think this fall I'm going to make a lot of jerky and if i have time some summer sausage. Every fall/winter I also smoke cheese, which is something you should do if you can. Have to finish the ceiling on my covered deck and fix leak on chimney before I can get going on everything else. Sometimes being a responsible adult sucks.
