My son harvested an axis doe this AM that had a fully formed fetus in her uterus. can we eat the fetus? I was thinking with proper dressing out that It would be a very tender meal???? He has it on the grill now...gutted, beheaded & legs off......

I would expect it to be delicious, though not much meat.

This seems bizarre to me. Not saying it's wrong, but I think it would gross me out big-time, for reasons I can't really put into words. Interested to read the results.

cooked & eaten, lots of fat content, Very tender & delicious. Texture reminded me of frog legs. Don't know that I will ever eat another,but, it did not go to waste.

I have had this issue with wild hogs. I didn't know that people ate the fetuses until I showed up at the butcher shop and the butcher was irritated that I hadn't brought them in. I have since wondered how they would be marinated on a spit. I think you have a more adventurous soul than I do. I think a deer fetus......I duh no can't much say never seen one.

I kill alot of deer each year and sure dont have any qualms about killing and i was raised by my father to never waste any meat but i guess in this case id have to pass.

Meat is meat. They are just tiny deer.

I won't have to worry about this issue. At least in NY the hunting season runs from before to six weeks after the rut. No chance of finding a fully formed fetus. I guess things are different elsewhere.

I bet it has little or no taste, even a young deer or calf that still nursing has little taste and the meat is mushy, not saying i wouldnt eat it but not today!

Some Native American tribes would give the fetus of a Buffalo to the elderly who had poor teeth since it was so tender. I don't like wasting meat, I'd eat it.

It's good you made the most of an edible part.

We're talking about axis deer, aka chital (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chital). Since they are classified as an exotic animal, there is no closed season or bag limit for them in Texas.

I don't see anything in the original post indicating geography.

Regardless of location, what deer species is delivering a fawn in November in the Northern Hemisphere? None, naturally, that i'm aware of.

Trolls, on the other hand, reproduce year round.

How big is it, squirrel size? If you posted pics I can't see them at work. I'd probably eat it.

Good point. Although "Chital" are found in rather large numbers in SE Asia, the "troll" doesn't seem to be interested in elaborating.

I've heard stories of veal being taken just like your situation.

May not be a troll. My brother shot a Red deer hind in July that was prego. We didn't eat the fetus, but did make alot of jokes about doing it. The ultimate veal...

Troll or not, it's a valid question and sometimes our modern "civilized" sensitivities get in the way of reality.

But, according to OP it's done now so no point in continuing the discussion.
