Remove the Lymph Nodes from the meat and avoid eating brain, spinal, and connective tissues and you should be safe.
The lymph system is pretty widespread throughout a mammal body and though the major ones might be excised, it ain't gonna work. As far as "connective tissue", ....maybe I'll leave that one alone as well.
The jerk that posted this thread is a card carrying PeTA member. The madcow.org is enough proof on the matter and this persons brain has already been filled with tofu anyway. "According to the State of California" every damned thing causes cancer and will kill you. That coming from a state that has a great chance to have surfing become popular water sports in Utah and Nevada.
My great granddaddies half brother Heimlich Gantry wuz chawing on a piece of elk once that was so tuff Ma Gantry had to put meat tenderizer in the gravy.... he forgot to masticate it 21 times, cheating on the count and after about 12 good chews decided to swallow....why son that cud of elk got hung up in his throat and he liked to have died, if it weren't fer my Uncle Heimlich Gantry coming by, and putting him in a bear hug. Yep eating elk is right near as dangerous as seating primers with one of them $9.99 Lee Loaders.
Thats PETA working against us. Theres more people getting killed
everyday by automobiles then will ever die eating deer or elk.
That last sentence can only be appreciated by those of us who lived that life. Thanx for the chuckle.
Haven't thought about that Lee Loader in years. Had three of them. Sure were loud when you seated a primer backwards. Still can't hear anthing.
Is this article "appears" to be from Outdoor Life.Can anybody verify that indeed they are shooting themselves in the foot?
So your best bet is to have it cut, wrapped and froze. Then to be really on the safe side, send all your elk meat to me. I will dispose of it properly.
it will not kill you if you kill it first before you try to cook it!
i tried to eat it before i shot it
i missed it clean and it was close and a monster probably scoring
160 or better
i almost died
There has been no known case world wide of anyone dying from eating elk or deer, even with CWD.
You are trying to eat it while it is still alive ! Especially if it has a good set of antlers ! Bradlee
Pass the gravy baby ! oh and by the way - prop me up beside the jukebox when I die & but I prefer brunettes !
