I'm not big on the venison Tony. I do enjoy the hunt, but I also don't find hunting for meat very challenging at all. As far as backstrap if done right it is good . Picture taken from my "hunting grounds" . And here's the stump just left of the bonfire pit, the thing on top is a carrot stick my daughter put there which I shot in half, pretty sure I could have some venison pretty easy this fall, and those little ones look real tender .
