I have detested liver ever since I was a youngster. I always ate heart and liked it. When my father, who had heart disease, was alive, his doctor told him to not eat any animal's organs. I have stayed away from those things ever since. I leave them with the gut pile and it makes the drag easier. When people ask me why I didn't bring back the heart or liver I always say I don't eat guts.

I use to eat the heart and liver but i have not in years. Don't know why i stopped.

With that said here's a ;ittle story involving a deer heart. My 2 cousins and i went hunting 1 day and i shot a doe. We all came back to my house and hung the deer from a tree. We went up to the liquor store and brought a case of beer and by the time we got back to cutting up that deer the beer was almost gone. Had some Jack Daniels also. We get out there and my cousin opens this deer up and starts pulling out the innerds and he grabs the heart. He looks at me all drunk and says " This is how the indians use to do it" And smashes that deer heart right into his face and takes a big bite of it. His brother and i just look at each other. The rest of the night while we were butchering that deer it looked like he had bright red lipstick on all around his face from the blood.

Me and my dad ate the heart for the first time this year. I suggested it after reading the good reviews off of this site, and then we had some big ole hearts from a couple deer that were 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 years old and around 180 field dressed each. It was a REAL strong flavor though. Didnt mind it too much, we just put it in the crock pot with some onions, baby carrots, and the like.....just as if we were doing a roast.

Never ate deer heart or liver! But this year when I was in Africa I ate the Heart, Liver, Tongue, and Testicles os the 2 Gemsbuk(Oryx) I shot! All were very good. I went back for a second helping of each! Hopefully I get another deer this year so I can try it!

Why eat the organ that manufactures cholesterol and filters poisons from your blood ? If there's a more disgusting meal than liver I can't think of what it is . [:'(]
I don't much care for the heart , but my labs love it , and liver , go figure ...

I don't eat the heart, but liver and onions is one of my favorite dishes. Call me old fashioned, but I love it and tell the guys not to leave the livers of their deer in the woods but to bring them in for me. I even give them plastic bags to put them in as they go out the door of the cabin.

My recipe is fairly simple. I slice the liver about half and inch thick, then roll the slices in flour with a few secret seasonings mixed in. I then fry the slices with a whole onion (sliced up fairly thin) in a frying pan (what else would you fry them in?). The stuff makes its own gravy from the flour and the juices. It is best over mashed potatoes, but I guess you could also serve it with my favorite mushroom noodles.

The mushroom noodles are so easy to make. Boil up some noodles (you pick what style of noodle you prefer). When they are done, add a can of mushroom soup to the noodles and stir it together. If you are a real gourmet cook, add a small can of mushroom bits and pieces to the mess.

Now, if you want to sample my deer liver and mushroom noodles, come to Camp Bucktail sometime during rifle season in Pa. One or two more plates don't cause any distress to the cook. If you visit during bear season, you might get to sample my world famous (for reasons yet to be determined) bear stew.
