Not sure if this is the proper forum sub category for this, but today I was preparing some of my last deer's tenderloins for the grill by making nice medallions to sear and smoke them after seasoning. I noticed one of them was really fatty, had large chunks of fat on it. I remember when I pulled them thinking it was a little odd, and not normally symmetrical. The other seemed fine. The one with all the extra fat, I stripped it off as well as possible and started to remove some of the silver skin and cut it into medallions. I saw in a few spots inside the muscle packs it was dark red, and one spot was black, and where I cut one place between two muscle bands where there was likely a vein or artery it had a solid substance in it that was light green. Reminded me of partially digested corn you might see in a gut pile. But it was inside the meat. I examinded it closer and found that it indeed was in a vein, and had a tendency to squeeze out like toothpaste in a tube. Pretty gross. Anyway, I'm wondering if any of you had seen this before, I assume this was an old wound, but I do not know. Perhaps it's somethint it contracted? The deer seemed fully capable as it walked through the woods. It dropped pretty quick though, so I don't know if it was slow moving or anything. (Used a rifle on it) --3D
