Dpnoll48. Thank you for your post. There is not one thing about your short little story that is not exceptional and the only thing I can say is, I NEED MORE FRIENDS LIKE THATI went down to Iowa this past Thursday and had a good day again. When I got home there was a message on my phone from a neighbor asking if I could help him with cutting up a deer. Now Charlie has been deer hunting for over 70 years and has shot a boatload. So I walked down to his house to see what the problem was. Well, he didn't know how to take out the backstraps and wanted me to show him how. He had two deer hanging and 5 minutes later we had 4 nice straps in a pan. He gave me one for my help and the picture below shows the end result, pecan crusted venison backstrap.
