BigBear56 I often wonder how much better my venison would be each year if my processor would let them hang. The processor we use (different from our deer processor) let’s them hang 2 weeks weather it’s a prime steer or cull cow. Really helps with the tenderness.[/quote wrote:
I was at a New Years eve party in a previous life where talk turned to deer hunting. The host invited us to see his buck, that was still hangin in a detached garage. We all trooped out with drinks in hand to see the sunken eyed evidence.

I asked him that spring if the deer was processed yet. He said yes - - there was a prolonged thaw in late February so he decided cut it up after 4 solid months of hang time. Very tender!
Now that’s aging your meat!!!! Wow
