Roadkill

Recommended Posts

tunrevir

Just got a call today from my wifes uncle in white bear and got a road killed(shot by PD) doe from his back yard. My question to you all is how many have you been treated to the feast of a roadkill? Innards seemed intact for the most part and the shoulders looked okay as well as the haunches. I got the permit and it is hanging right now. I'd imagine there will be a certain amount of meat that isn't salvageable but for the most part am looking foreward to cleaning it up. I already promised the uncle some prime cuts and the suasage meat. Just curious if any of you have had any luck with something like this as far as salvageable meat.

you won't really know til you get it skinned! then you will be able to see how much damage there is. i have had them where only a front shoulder was wasted,had to cut one in half, or had to throw most of it away. del

Like Del said.. skin it...

take what you feel safe taking. I have recieved a few road kills, often times you will loose some meat to bad bruising. But others it isnt any worse than your shot...

Skin it, and remove anything that doesnt "look good" to you.. and enjoy the rest!

Like the others said, the only way to tell is to get the skin off. Look for deep bruising, urine, and guts. Most likely the backstraps, neck and at least the non-contact side should be ok, probably not for steaks, but you can always grind it up.

I have butchered many roadkill. Same as any shot deer, just remove the damaged part of the deer.

I've never done it myself, but my brother hit one and it turned out almost all the meat was good because he hit it in the head/neck area. I agree though, the only way to tell is hang it and skin it.

Well, the good news is that after skinning the deer there were 3 good quarters as it must have gotten hit in the head neack and partial front quarter. No broken bones but bruising was evident on one front quarter. I'll finish cutting and packing it up today and hopefully have some fresh loins out in the shack today. Thanks for your input guys!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
