Oooooo venison

Recommended Posts

After shooting a few muntys at the weekend they were butchered and shared between friends and family. I kept a rack of ribs , saddle cut and a rear leg . 

Tonight I cooked up a bit of it for the family. 

The spare ribs were delicious

That looks lovely.  I've yet to try muntjac as we don't have them on the ground I shoot.  But I have heard they are delicious .  What's a typical dressed carcass weight if you don't mind me asking?

My family “just” happen to visit when l’m skinning/butchering muntjacs, l think they must have a second sense or they’ve spoken to their mother the night before after l’ve gone out shooting for the evening.

But yes it’s definitely one of the favourites to eat, that’s if there’s any left 🤔

Weight wise they differ greatly 7/8kg tops.

All we have is munty locally. 20 miles away  we have fallow, red and Roe about 40 miles away. It’s crazy that they haven’t ventured this far. 

Ive never weighed one sorry. As it’s my ground I don’t pay for anything so never tried.

I’ve given a munty away to a mate for helping me and half of my own to the owner and family. It’s good to share tho :)

7/8Kg is about average although I have had quite a few bucks get to weights of around 12Kg dressed out. 

Heaviest I have had has been 14.

Thanks for the feed back - a 12kg carcass sounds an extraction dream.... we should set up an exchange on here - come to Scotland and shoot a red  etc...

my in laws live I the forest   Of dean and have both boar and muntjac visiting their acre garden but short of putting in a 10m tower it’s not feasible to shoot

Now you're just showing off!  I don't shoot a lot of deer but they are mostly Reds, the one Roe I have ever shot was a revelation that I could put it over my shoulders and carry it!

I chucked my first over my shoulder and it leaked stomach acid down my rifle , it’s still stained.

i just grab the back legs and drag now. It’s 15 minute walk max so not to bad. Funny thing is tho those front teeth collect loads of grass

Decathlon sell a game sack for about 20 quid which would take one or two muntjac, or one roe. It's been a good purchase.

Just a quick tip, if you pull with the front legs or tie a bit of rope just under the head on the neck it is easier as it creates a lot less friction, having had to drag a Roe @ a mile and a half before now I can testify that it is easier.

I have a cheap canvas roe sack.   It will take one full grown roe or a couple of munties.   Carrying is easy because it wraps the carcass up then fits on like a rucksack.   However, I am old - Can't deny it.   So I usually drag the bag.   Slides easily over any terrain around here.

They do taste absolutely delicious.   Best of the deer family I think.  

On a recent trip I was lucky enough to get three.   Gave one to old friend and did two for friends and the Memsahib and myself.

Going to have some for supper...

I almost always stick to shooting munties these days. For a start they are such good eating and even better you can gut them and then with all four legs together carry them out like a medium size suit case, plus no struggle to get them in my Landie or on the carrier.  Some people hate them but I personally think they are a great little addition to our countryside.

As I said to TT, try and get some wildboar and cranberry pate from Aldi then if not some farmhouse/mushroom will do as well.  Butterfly the backstrap, fill with the pate and then roll the whole lot in smokey bacon and roast.  Hot or cold, delicious.

I’d love roe around here David . It’s only the last 5 years really that we have them but it’s still big gaps between them

There are a few about TT but thin on the ground. Have had one or two bucks pass through my wood and they have been seen north of you but I think they are either being taken by dogs or just shot out of hand before they can get settled.
