A friend gave me a backstrap for an axis deer. Packaged up ready for a hot water bath.

Fallow and axis deer are by far the 2 best wild game animals I have ever ate.
I am going to thump a couple does on my next trip for the freezer!

Rested for 30 min before searing.

I have done a few different dishes (mule deer) since I got my sous vide and haven't had any trouble with overcooking. How thick is the meat you are cooking? If not thick enough any meat is tough to get right with a SV
