Yes the old bucks do tend to be gamey.
If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.
Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
I've never cooked venison, so can't answer, but my uncle gave me a couple of packages of elk when I lived in CA... the ground meat I made spaghetti for the kids... they loved it and my daughter actually ate some of it... she's been a vegetarian since she was about 6, so I guess I did okay.... the roast I cooked was just short of shoe leather... must have messed that up. My uncle's brother in law always cooked his breaded and fried... remember it as being pretty tasty.

My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
I cook venison about the same as I do most meats, on the webber. Direct heat for a sear then moved off the heat (charcoal only on one side of the grill) put a piece of wood for smoke (I use alder) put the cover on the grill and leave for 25 - 25 minutes. Done to medium/Medium rare every time. I also only season with salt and pepper
I love venison. The best way to cook it starts with the best way to hunt it The best venison isn't from a 12 point buck, it's from the younger deer. Once that part of the task is completed, I flour it, then fry it in oil like you would fried chicken... good stuff.
Oh Tom's culinary skills folks, have to be tasted to be believed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is a chief!!!!!!
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
