Great flavor, but it can be a little chewy unless sliced thin after cooking. I season it liberally with McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning. Rub the seasoning in and put it in a ZipLoc bag with a few ounces of Kraft Zesty Italian dressing. Squeeze the air out of the bag and let it marinate in the fridge for five or six hours, or overnight. Cook to medium rare with lots of hickory smoke and serve the 1/4" slices with a baked potato and your favorite veggie.

You should have been a butcher!! Great looking cuts, better than I can do for sure!
I also cut up my own, I took a big 10pt (165# field dressed) to a local butcher here in 2015 due to the heat (lower 80's in early Nov.) so it wouldn't spoil, only $100...but better than taking a chance.

On any hoofed mammal you will get about 40% of boneless trimmed meat. 40% of 130 is 52 lbs so if you add in the bloodshot and the trimmings you're right at that number.

Nice Semi. Excellent post as usual. And a good eatin buck to boot. I always laugh at guys who get their deer from the butcher and say that he must have kept some of the meat. A guy shoots a 100 lb doe through both shoulders and expects to get 70 lbs of meat. NO way Jose! You ruined 5-10 lb of meat right there out of the 40 or so lb you would have gotten.
