Default Who here took a bite of the heart from their first deer?

Got my soon to be bil into hunting last year and he was able to get his first deer ever. With a bow on public land at that. We convinced him it was tradition and we had all done it.

You lie!!! I told you the first thing i wanted to do after i killed one was cut out the heart and take a bite. If anything i convinced the other two guys to do it. I felt like it was a sign of respect for the animal

I've never knowingly eaten the heart of anything cooked or raw.

I did for my first bowkill. I was a spry young 15 year old kid and my uncle, his buddies and a "veterinarian" lease member helped me blood trail her and find her. It was a constant razzing while I field dressed her, and they didn't think that I would do it. I pulled out her heart, said a few Indian words that I had heard in western movies, and took a big ole bite out of it. They almost fell over when I did it, and the vet just about puked on himself.
Knowing what I know now, about blood born pathogens et al, I wouldn't do it again. When my boy kills his first, he will get the traditional blood on the cheeks.

The deer camps I was around as a kid, traditionally cut the shirtail off the clothes you hunted in. They also insisted on frying and eating the "manly" parts of the buck ,which I did. They were all right but not near as tasty as calf fries.

Some of us here apparently are often missing shirttails after hunting

I did nothing with the heart of the first deer I killed, but I have tried the heart cooked and it was tough and nasty.
