The dollar (breakfast) steaks are what made me want to hunt deer this year. I have very fond memories of deer steak for breakfast on Christmas morning. My mother would make biscuits and gravy and dollar steaks so that we could spend the rest of the day just hanging out as a family. We never had a big Christmas dinner, but we ate like kings for breakfast.
I am considering tanning the deer hides but am a little intimidated. I tried tanning a coyote hide once and I think I could have done it but Hubby got tired of it hanging around in the garage and tossed it. I think the buckskin would be a little easier than trying to tan a fur. Am I crazy for trying this?
