Wondering if anyone has a recipe for deer heart.  I usually brine for a night then boil with a whole onion and some garlic and few other spices.  

Any other ideas?

Here's my recipe that I've used for many, many years with lots of complements. 

1) Shoot Deer.

2) Pull guts and inners out.

3) Leave pile on forest floor to chill until some varmint comes by to enjoy it.

They love it every time!  :P

My brother smoked deer hearts, he slices the heart before brining, that's a pretty dense muscle to marinate whole.

 

I quit eating deer heart, animal organs gave a lit of cholesterol I've been told.

I actually cooked the heart from my dads deer this year. First time I ever had it and it won't be the last. I thought it was darn delicious.

Me too - I've never considered it before but gutted out my deer this year and the heart was in perfect shape, thought what the heck and threw it in the snowbank while I finished up and found a box of ziplocks in the truck.

Followed Hank Shaw's instructions on opening it up to remove the aorta, etc. and then separating into three separate pieces.  Marinated for a few hours and grilled it along with the tenderloins, sliced everything up on a plate and fed it to the family without saying anything more that it was two different cuts of venison.  The heart was hands down everyone's favorite, after every last piece was gone I informed them we had just polished off the heart - a few sideways looks but now the kids have been asking when we can have deer heart again!

I have had the heart before and found it to be very good. I think I will take some marinade along on my muzzleloader hunt and hopefully grill one up.

So I ended up putting it in a brine overnight, then seasoned it with a little of this and that.  Boiled it for 4 hours with 2 onions and clove of garlic and added cinnamon weird I know but turned out fantastic.

    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
