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.
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.
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?
