I can taste the back straps already

First one of the year falls. Nice tender back straps - mmm, they are going to be good. Now you gotta understand, I live in a suburb here in Kansas City, hung it in the front yard, butchered her up as I always have- Guess I broke in the new neighbors right, the teenage girl comes out and ask, "excuse me, but what is that?"
Only in Overland Park, KS! LOL

    A little ****, but those are delicious! Nice way to start the season. Congratulations.

    Thanks Jermanator - still get the "RUSH" even with the little ones. When that's gone, I will hang my bow for good, but I don't ever see that happening. I have found the only thing better is watching your kids get the same feeling.

    Excellent. Been waiting for the first one to post up a successful hunt.

    Had some back steaks thurs night off the deer I shot last sunday. Heated the pan, a smidgen of butter, half a teaspoon of crushed garlic, the same of fresh crushed ginger. Seared the steaks for about 60 seconds each side and they were so tender a knife was not required. Soaked up the juice left on the plate with big chunks torn off a 'Farmhouse' loaf of fresh bread.

    Best meal I have had for a while.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Nice going twa! That's perfect. I've shot a few just like it and that's the best of the best on the table.

    Nice start to the season! Making me jealous because I won't be going after whitetail this year.

    Like you said, even the little ones still give me a rush. Besides, it's always good to take a smaller doe for the freezer if you have the tags to do it. I do the same thing most seasons if I'm holding a bonus antlerless tag and haven't had luck for a larger doe. You KNOW the smaller one is going to eat well.

    Around this house, backstraps from a deer that size get grilled whole....rub them down with some olive oil, apply your favorite rub, let them sit for a couple of hours and then toss it on the grill....

    I always do mine in butterflies, but I like the idea Jayhawker, that sounds like a great way to do it. I actually called my guy that makes my jerky on Friday and told him I was eating my very last piece from last year, so it worked out perfect. Nice thing in KS, we can get up to 5 antlerless deer tags, but only one buck tag - definitely plan on taking a few more out of the herd and waiting for one of the nice horned deer I have on camera.

    Why do y'all call that a "little" deer? Looks about normal-sized here in Florida...
