I liked harvesting them when I was 20. It was a lot easier dragging them out of the woods back then.

Whenever the kids are capable of handling firearms. However, they do not harvest, they kill.

How the meat is handled from the time of trigger pull is much more important to the taste than the age will ever be!

Exactly. You have got to drain the blood first thing. You don't want the blood clotting in the meat.

When we used to hunt small game (quail mostly) the first thing we did was to cut the head off then gut the bird.

Draining the blood has nothing to do with proper handling the meat. In fact, by draining the meat you are depriving the meat of precious moisture.

Agree^^^ Venison needs moisture and is best served rare.
