Default front tenderloins

Sun of a gun. All these years I've taken out the back tenderloins ( tallking about the inside tenderloins, not the backstraps) and had them first, as a reward for a successful hunt etc. But what about the front tenderloins? I've never thought to pull them out. Has anyone eaten them? They are smaller but they are significant. Are they more gamey?

You have got me stummped. I know of only one set of tenderloins. They are located inside the body cavity at the end of the spine where it connects to the pelvic saddle.in a cattle beast this would be called Filet Mingon. Where are the "front tenderloins" I have never heard of these, I have processed lots of deer and have never heard that term before. A lot of people incorrectly call the loin(backstrap) the tender loin.

I process my own deer and if there are "front" tenderloins I don't know where they are hiding.

There are no muscles up above the diaphragm except the heart so I can't imagine where else you would be talking about.

Please enlighten me and my frying pan

Uh oh. Maybe I'm off base here. I was dressing out a buck today and I thought I saw two tenderloins on the inside of the rib cage just before the neck. Too late to check now. The "other" tenderloins were in the frying pan before they had a chance to cool down. We live near a nuclear plant so it must have been some kind of mutation...

After you field dress a deer ,you will see 2 pieces of meat on either side of the back bone(we call them the inside tenderloins also)EXCELLENT MEAT[8D]
What we call the backstraps(outside tenderloins) are the one's you have to skin the deer to get to
