I'm curious as to how many of us like deer liver and heart.
I like heart. Liver unless its from a small fawn I won't eat it. Most deer where I hunt have Liver Flukes. Something not to appetizing to eat by accident. (resembles a blood sucker or leech) Easy to check a liver for flukes. Their just not my cup of tea in wanting to deal with is all. Although its been said Deer Liver Flukes are indeed harmless to man. (So they say.)

To check for Flukes. Clean a liver off as best you can in the field. Look for scaring marks on the deers liver Top & bottom sides. With a sharp knife slice open those scaring marks carefully as far as it takes to expose a fluke if there are any. If infected its your decision to leave that liver behind at the gut pile or take it with you.
