Day 8 Michael Land- Deer Meat Tacos

**Written and Submitted by Michael**
Well, to be accurate, I would have to say deer meat taco salad. We couldn’t find any non-GMO taco shells so we switched to torilla chips. Still the same juicy deer meat though!
It’s become a staple up here in the Raabis Whole. Ever since deer season we’ve been eating wild venison from the mountain behind our house. Chris brought down a buck and a doe with his cross bow this season. He dragged the buck out himself. The doe he carried out with Kelly, jungle style, hooves tied over a long pole, slung over a shoulder each. It took them an hour.

He took them to a butcher and they turned them both into roasts, stewing cuts, ground, and jerky. The jerky disappeared pretty quick. When we have a roast, Lily and Rosy get very excited about the tender loin. And we’ve had some nice stews with big chunks of potatoes. I feel blessed to eat wild meat from our back yard. Up here the deer drink from streams that are among the cleanest in the world. Their dinner is five star buffet. They are eating fruit of trees, barks, lichens, mushrooms, berries, fresh green shoots. We’re talking healthy deer.
And, it’s hard to get dinner from any closer to home. This is part of the one mile diet. Actually, you sit there and wait for dinner to come to you. Chris spent a lot of long, early morning hours out there in a blind, covered in camouflage, and deer pee spray, waiting for his chance to get a clean hit.
Deer meat taco salad is a hit! Thanks Raabis!
Next, it’s bear season!
