MagMan, Thanks, I am looking foward to trying this reciepe. I still have some venison in the freezer for jerkey. I want some fresh meat to work with. Our deer season just open for 4 days during thanksgiving weekend. It is now closed untill next weekend and stays open through mid Feb. I did see lots of does and 3 small bucks. I will shoot a doe during doe week for the meat, and won't shoot a buck unless he is a wall mounter. I am looking foward to the Venison Bacon tast test
