    Road kill or not that is a vile piece of somethin that I wouldn't call meat.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Just got back from camping with the dude who processes deer in my area. He said that it doesn't matter how a deer is killed, it matters how you gut and process it. Now, he does run a business and has a vested intrest, but he is also the guy the county sheriffs take road kill deer to. He claims that depending on temperature, a deer could lay there for up to 24 hours. Obviously, the hotter temp, the less time, but the vile fluid is a myth.

    Like I said, he runs a business and it would be in his best intrest to take all deer, but as of now no one has gotten sick. Ryou, you had me scared! And I probably will quit eating road kill deer because of it, but my mind is now a little more at ease whether he was lying or not.

    There is no way it is just a myth. If you hit a deer and its internal organs explode and you wait several hours to dress it, you're going to have awful, inedible meat.

    It's like saying you could take a piece of steak, pour liquid feces on it, let it sit for 12 hours... wash it and eat it.

    Now, if the deer is killed and cleaned immediately (like is probably the case with most roadkill prepared by butchers who prepare venison), you probably will be fine, but there is no way it's just a myth.

    Exactly. It depends on how the deer was hit and what happens to its internal organs Where I live people hit deer all the time. Most of them are left on the side of the road to rot, but every now and again a hunter/farmer type will take one home if the meat is salvagable. I'm assuming a hunter or butcher could decipher pretty easily wether a particular deer will provide edible meat or not.

    Dammit man! I have eaten road kill deer before and I want to convince myself that it is okay. The dude who processes it probably did lie to me, but I liked his answer better. Work with me here. I feel something gurgling in my throat already. And it is prime deer season in Ohio, too!

    Next thing you know people will be telling me that hunting in State Parks is a no-no. Sure, I know it's technically illegal, but just like road kill, it is but a myth, right?
