My husband is currently trying to cut up his first deer for processing. We need to know what parts we should keep for burger & How much of this shiny stuff needs to come off what he is cutting out ?HELP!!


Please tell your husband congratulations!!

Tracy and I fillet all the connective tissue (shiney stuff) from each cut of meat.  I remove each major muscle (debone the meat) and then clean each piece of venison by filleting each piece.  This will results in pure meat that is extremely tender and taste great!

Enjoy creation,
