Deer heart
Searched and didnt see anything.

I killed a deer tues and quickly cleaned it and put the heart in ziploc in the fridge. I sliced it up today and when I smell it there is a slight gross smell. Ive eaten deer my whole life but never the heart. Does the heart smell different than backstraps? Just wondering if I left it in the fridge too long.

re: Deer heart
It probably would have been better kept on ice for this long.

Is eating a deer heart worth a trip to the ER? No? Then throw it out and eat the next one quicker after keeping it colder.

re: Deer heart
Did you rinse it off after cleaning it? If you truly cleaned it and it’s been in the fridge it should be more then good to eat. Only thing I can think of is maybe it got some stomach/ guts on it and wasn’t rinsed off?

Maybe rinse it off real well and then see how it is?

re: Deer heart
I rinsed it good prior. Ive never tried it before and just wondering if it has a different smell and I dont want to throw out a good piece of heart.

I’d definitely think twice before you throw your heart away

re: Deer heart
I ate one once,I didn’t really like it.It had a peculiar taste.I like deer liver but I have a hard time getting my wife to cook it since she doesn’t really like liver.
I guess I need to learn to cook.

Northern Michigan style. Clean it up and boil it and the tongue. Peel the layer off the tongue and slice them both up. Pickle and enjoy after a month. Lots of Polish people where I grew up.

re: Deer heart
I never found it had any different smell. If you didn't clean it out good, it probably still has clotted blood in it and that might be making it stinj

re: Deer heart
Deer heart typically has a bit of a stronger smell than the rest of the edible deer. Btw, deer heart is my favorite part of the deer after the tenderloin. I love it deep fried or cooked down with some onions

re: Deer heart
I went ahead and ate it. Had it grilled down in onions and then fried it. Of course frying it was better

Tasted same as tenderloin to me

You're not kidding. Did opening day in Michigan one year for work. That night we all met u at a farm house that had several nice bucks hanging in the barn. I was starving to death and was thinking, man some of that loin is gonna be good.

Nope, we had boiled heart and tongue. To this day, I still whence a little when I think about it.

re: Deer heart
Haha. That was snack meat.
We always let the deer hang until the weekend. Then my mom cooked fried tenderloin, hashbrowns, and eggs while we started butchering. I remember using a butter knife to help when I was too little to use a sharp knife. Family Tradition
