Two femur bones yielded a easy 6+ quarts of tasty venison stock. You just let the stock cool and peel the layer of rendered fat off the top. This way, you can cook venison roasts and stews without having to buy commercial beef stock nor have to blend wild game with domestic animal products. Beef stock is also kind of pricey, so you can save a good bit of money. Between Deer, Duck and Turkey season, a hunter not never to buy stock again. You can even do the same with squirrel and rabbit.

Yeah, it's great. It's even amazing. You just have to remove any rendered fat before freezing. It's not as much as you think it will be either. While the stock is still hot, it won't taste gamey at all, but the fat will surface and concentrate upon cooling.

Oh, and the shanks will be great, just give them plenty of time, especially on a older deer. You have a lot of tough silver skin to cook down.

I wonder if you strain it through cheese-cloth when its cooling if that would help get all the fat out

Wouldn't hurt. Probably a good idea.

Here is the rendered fat: Nice and waxy, easy to peel off with a spoon.

Did you roast the bones in the oven before cooking the stock?

No, I saw a couple of holes in them. You could also shatter them with a axe or hatchet. You do need to open them up, though.
