Sorry vermin. This is the dark under belly no one talks about when it comes to deer farming. You may be fine, as long as those deer hadn't been drugged recently. I hate the idea of throwing any meat away, and am not suggesting you do that at all. Just thought you should know how those nice folks that run those types of operation do things! I bet they never once mentioned drugging and handling those deer, or buying and selling them at auction like cattle. No telling if your boss ordered a certain number of deer of a certain size or if they had them on hand.

I didn't mention carfentanol (sp). They would have used it on the red stag you had a picture of. For lack of a better description, it is wicked. A few drops absorbed through your skin can kill you rather quickly! Not sure how long it stays in the meat, but I am thinking 90-120 days.

In the eternal words of Alton Brown.....Good Eats!

Maybe just leave it in the freezer for a minimum of 6 months before eating.

It will break down some even while frozen. The sheer amount of meat, however, would make me nervous. If it is indeed pumped full of chemicals. Considering he has ~300 lbs of it, that's a lot if exposure even if it is tiny amounts.

Maybe you could get some samples tested? For the amount of meat, it might be worth the cost.

Could you possibly just call the ranch and find out how recently they'd been drugged? It seems like you'd have a reasonable chance of them just telling you how long they are on the ranch prior to the hunt.

For those that haven't been to Texas, the Hill Country has a lot of high fenced ranches, with a good number that have exotics. Some are huge and some are just a few hundred acres. Most of the ranches that don't have exotics have regular livestock fencing. South Texas, well, between Houston/Galveston and Corpus Christie is much more agricultural but has a lot of the same as the Hill Country. It's pretty neat, as in different than here in the Southeast.

I've spent some time there working, not hunting. It isn't my cup of tea. Leases for regular 'ol whitetails run from about $1,250 to $2,500 per gun. It can go up quickly if there are limited guns and good animals (for there). I don't remember hearing about leases per acre, it was always per gun. I like the feel of the area and all of the history much more than the hunting part. I would like to go on a Nilgai hunt one of these days, though. I've heard they're dang good tablefare.

Vermin, good story and pictures. I'm glad you had the chance to go.
