Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Can't say I have ever eaten raw heart, but we generally cook it up the day we take a deer. For those that have never tried it, you don't know what you are missing. Most tender cut in the deer.
My daughter loves heart and after she holds a leg for me to gut one she wants to carry the heart to the truck. One time after a boy cousin killed his first deer, he was kind of squimish about gutting it. However, when we finished, my daughter pipped up "can I carry the heart". Not to be outdone, and suddenly not squimish because a girl could do it, he says: "no, it is my deer, I get to carry it." Funny how getting shown up by a girl at that age (12) can do.
