Roadkill and canned food
« on: May 25, 2019, 06:50:31 PM »
Driving home from helping 2 members trying to fill bear tags and a deer jumped out. Swerved but still domed him. Growing up roadkill was for the hill people but now it’s a huge bonus to the freezer.

First meal is always the tenderloin (the inside ones) which I oiled, salt & peppered and rubbed a prime rib seasoning on then seared each side and put in the oven for 5 minutes at 375. Temps were 125 and 130 so the one got a little too done. Opened some canned peaches and asparagus. Steamed broccoli and threw some corn with onion powder & salt/pepper in the searing pan.

And only minor damage to the truck. Gonna hold off on buying my spotting scope and get a brush guard, deer are thick on the roads this year.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

Sounds so 'bad'... roadkill. My wife ate it though and loved it. Gutless skinned a roadkill doe, she was hit in midsection, internals all messed up but no broken bones other than ribs. Through her in truck and turned her into 20 lbs of jerky and 30-40 lbs of smoked sausage. I'd do it again if it happens again, sad to see them rotting on the side of a road.

Nice work, Tracker, that looks awesome. The venison looks perfect. I salvaged three deer last year (2 in WA, 1 in ID), and it sure helps the meat supply!

That’s awesome! We got part of a roadkill steer that got hit by an ambulance. The owner couldn’t afford a butcher so we helped process it and got half a cow!! Only problem was it was still too warm to hang. Good to see people taking advantage of an   Animal that would otherwise go to waste. Plus that meal looks amazing.

Must not be a whole bunch of people feel safe with road kill.  I just picked one up yesterday.  Young Blacktail spike, must have been down for 1 - 3 or 4 hours.  Not bloated, no flies and no smell.  Inner thighs were still warm when I started quartering.  Took backstraps, shoulders, hind legs and tenderloins (gutless method).  Meat is excellent.  Feel a little bad that I did not trim out the neck though.  But hey, like the man said, it is a gift.  Enjoyed a couple strips last night, pan seared in bacon fat... :EAT:
deboned the rest and just need to get to packing it up.  Not sure if I want to vacum seal or just cling wrap.

How do you assess these roadkills to determine whether the meat is still good or bad before butchering.  The one I got yesterday seemed like a no brainer.
