I make burger out of most of my deer. But also make a bunch of salami, I love venison cotto salami!
Thanks, I'll tell him! They were up in extreme NE Oregon, near the borders with Washington and Idaho.
Thank you for the cooking tips and suggestions! I'll definitely look up venison sausage posts and I'll look to see if you have a post out there on venison cotto salami.

Thanks! My husband is really excited, and I'm super proud of him, especially because it was clean and instant for the deer.
He has been going up to the Wallowa District for muzzle loader whitetail season, somewhere north of Enterprise. Not sure of the unit, but I can find out when he gets home and PM you. Apparently the tags are easier to come by out there because it is so remote. Takes a full 10 hours to get there from our house here in the valley.

Try doing french chops (like lamb) great app for when you have a fancy dinner!
Oh and congrats on the first!
Thank you, I'll tell him! Thank you very much for the cooking advice!!
