A friend of my parents gave them some venison steaks, already butchered. The friend's nephew harvested the deer this season out in Suffolk County somewhere, no details given. My parents read an article regarding deer contraception that took place (this year?), and they are worried we might get sick eating the meet if this deer was one of the ones given the birth control shot or whatever.

 

Do they still have this deer birth control program?

Any thoughts?

Suffolk venison is mighty fine and safe.

 

It's he FI National Seashore did the contraception program. They're actually starting to hunt them.

Those beach deer are like a whole 'nother species, overpopulated, mangy, thin. I've walked right up to a buck on FI and could have broken it's neck with my hands (they're used to getting fed). Completely different than mainland deer.

Yes eat it serves with a nice red wine Deme glaze and boiled fingerling potatoes and Broccolina tossed   sauteed garlic and breadcrumbs. I like a semi sweet red wine with my venison.

I eat it twice about twice a week for 52 weeks a year and I'm still kicking. Learn how to cook different cuts. Rule of thumb steaks should be cooked hot and fast, Pink rare center. Generally slow cook any meat from the front quarters, neck, etc. Backstraps and loins are choice cuts and imo as good as beef if not better.

No !    You will glow in the dark and grow a sixth toe on your left foot.   Since I may not have that many years left comparatively speaking, would find glowing in the dark helpful when fishing and do not hunt at night, and since I wear water sandals for half the year, I would gladly take any venison off your hands that you are afraid to eat.   My better half has some digestive issues and just now I trimmed off some silver skin from some tenderloins and steaks, tenderized it a bit, and will marinade in an olive oil, soy sauce and Montreal Steak Sauce mix.  A few minutes on the barbie tonight, merely browning each side.....but by all means, I have just a wee bit of room left in my freezer, lol.

I would call a local for years removing doa deer hit by a vehicle. He's fed his family on venison road kill. Plenty of good venison recipes if you google it!

With all the processed food that humans eat, the deer actually eat healthier than we do. No problem eating LI venison.

Try to eat only from the deer near the LI wineries. Nothing like a steady diet of Cabernet grapes to sweeten the meat!

I go down to the lighthouse sometimes in the winter. Now, you'll get fined if you feed them but I used to bring a few dog biscuits and they would come up to the boardwalk and take them from my hand. Yeah, they looked like they had mange but they seemed healthy otherwise. They have plenty to eat down there.

 

The place used to be lousy with deer. You really had to stay below the 30 mph limit because they would jump out and dare you to hit them. They've had feeding stations with contraceptives for years. Apparently, it's worked because I don't see nearly as many any more. At least not in the western part of the island. The golf course used to be covered with deer scat.

Fam has a house on the West end. I'm there every summer. The crackhead deer as I call them are all over cutting through fences like slow zombies. Way overpopulated raiding garbage and gardens. They move like they're drugged and don't scare at all.

 

I could hunt whitetails with my bare hands there if I wanted. Would have hugged this guy but he has like 1000x more ticks than the ones in my backyard on the mainland (and they're like half the size and will run if you get with 30 ft). They're so different in behavior and size I don't even consider them "long island deer", just crackhead "beach deer" while the citidiots renting summer houses for 30K a month are fascinated by them. :P

My major concern is Lyme disease with whitetail deer. It is a terrible disease that these deer carry.

Lyme disease isn't the only problem.   They (the ticks on the deer) have been identified as carrying a disease that makes one very allergic to red meat.   All red meat.
