Not much at all. usually keep a half for a bit of dry cure sausage but everything else goes to my neighbor. Get an elk each year and we raise beef so how much meat do ya need.[8D]

I've shot 5 so far. Kept 3 for my girlfriend and myself, gave 2 to my parents(who in turn give meat to my brother and sister) If I get any more they will be donated to HSH. Of the 3 I kept, a lot of that meat will be randomly given away to friends/coworkers. Just today I cooked up some roasts and shredded them and dumped BBQ sauce on em and took em in for the guys at work.

I make a ton of jerky and bring it with me to work for everyone else to try. I also grind up most of the meat and don't have to by ground beef for the rest of the year.

My wife won't eat it, that's fine. I take all the meat I get from my buck each year and have bologna made, I love it. It usually lasts me from one season to the next at around 75 chubs. I give it out to the landowner, guests and friends as well.

I currently have about 5 chubs left and I haven't taken this years deer to the butcher yet. MMmmmm good stuff.

If I want a steak, I throw a Porterhouse on the grill.

1 deer is not enough to last the year in my house but 2 is plenty.
Friends and family also enjoy the venison so I share the wealth whenever possible.
2 deer a year seems to be my limit anyhow.

I usually shoot 3 to 4 deer a year. We butcher beef also so we have all the burger and steaks we can eat and the wife won't eat deer over beef. I just make lots of jerky and sausage when the season is over; everybody loves that stuff so it doens't last long. I've got 3 to work on from this year once the holidays are over.

I usually process one a year, mostly into salami and slim jims. The rest get donated to Hunters feeding the Hungry program or given to my family.

It's my first season to even have this to think about!!

The first deer I took this year was 172 lbs on the hoof. I processed him completely at home....and it put some meat in my new floor freezer (I was confident enough to purchase a floor freezer before the season started). the little piebald I shot wasn't too big....so I had him ground up into burger. The doe.....I had done into sausage. The last buck I donated to a family of 14 that I know of. The butcher donated the processing fee.....and I was going to throw in a gift certificate to the meat center, too. The butcher matched my $$....and all was well.

I've given sausage to a few co-workers......ground venison to family.....and we're eating backstraps, tonight, for the third time since I took my first. We've also had tacos, spaghetti.....and I'm liking the sounds of the manwich thing. My son also used a roast to do a school home economics project....and it turned out great!

I think I'm gonna keep it at 3 in our freezer.....and see how it goes. I might keep more, next year.....or less. We'll see. I can honestly see us going through those 3 in less than 9 months.
