    Got another round of venison this week.

    10 lbs here going to be split into nacho cheese, teriyaki and black forest slim jims.

    Still frozen tight so needs to thaw some.

    I think the guy let it bleed out to long. Did a beef fat cut in.

    The venison in the baggy is mine from PA, Going to make some for me....YIKES
     
  7. Good for you in making some for yourself! I love your sausage making posts as I am going to start this endeavor with elk meat. Most of my venison is gone [​IMG]. Patiently waiting for the results.

    Awesome, NEPAS! Can't wait to see the rest!

    The color of that meat reminds more of squirrel meat!

    Those look great as always Nepas.  What size casings are you using?  Have you ever used sheep casings for snack sticks?
