    So i got my buck and hung it for a few days then put it in the fridge in sections last night. tonight when my uncle and i was cutting it up, i decided i wanted totry it raw, so i cut some meat from deep in the thigh and a bit of the backstrap and man i was good. I LOVED IT

    but now im wondering if it was a bad move. anyone else have experiance with it?

    its red meat and people eat red meat raw/rare all day

    Raw meat won't hurt you but the various critters living in the meat might when they take up residence in your flesh...

    It's meat from a ruminant so your odds are quite good for being fine, now carnivores and omnivores on the other hand are a dicey proposition.

    no, but if he starts onking, or rubbing antlers, we will become worried.

    it should be fine, if you dont mind krapping out a 4 foot tapeworm. However that may deter you from eating raw meat anytime again in the near future. God speed oh adventurous one.

    And now you'll be happy to know you get the priviledge of living the remainder of your days pondering what could or did happen on that fateful bathroom mission! :thumbup::paranoid:

    Already purged the thoughts from my mind. something about another man, or woman, taking care of that business is not appealing to me. I really hope i never think about it again.

    you can't get tapeworm from eating fresh muscle.. tapeworms live in the intestines. unless you get cross contamination of larvae, there's nothing to worry about. if the meat sits long enough you might run the risk of getting the poops from mild GI infection. that's about it, with bovines.

    yet there is still something quite entertaining about watching a dog do it in the yard

    You guys crack me up! :)

    But back to the topic, nothing to worry about. Ive done it before with deer and never had an issue. I remember years ago in Eastern Oregon, a buddy and I got a nice little buck. As we were getting it dressed out, I thought I'd freak my buddy out and take a bite from the heart like the Indian's supposedly did. So he turned away for a moment while I was elbow deep in it, and I grabbed the heart up and took a big bite when he looked back at me. He turned about 25 shades of green at me, I had blood running down my face and all. Chewed up the bite and swallowed it, tasted like tofu dipped in blood.

    If that deer you ate from was sick looking, yeah, probably not a good idea to eat uncooked meat from it. But if it looked healthy before you shot it, and looked like it was in healthy condition as you dressed and skinned it, your fine. Raw meat just takes longer to digest in our stomachs. No biggie.
