    I have a brother in law that whenever he would shoot a deer we would ask him about the liver, and his reply was always "I shot it through the liver." We then would ask him about the heart and get the same reply. It was strange that most of those deer would have a single bullet hole in them.

    The best thing that I could suggest to you is to find someone that knows how to cook it and then pick up some beef brains and even some tripe and have them cook it and see what you think.

    I have had brains and can take or leave them. I also tried some tripe and that was a one time deal. Tongue on the other hand is quite good.

    I have never had the desire to eat brain. Just hasn't been something I thought was a great plan but my formative years were when CWD was first starting to make itself known.

    Thank you guys for your responses. Almost every part of animal is good if you know how to cook it. It is usually like mentally people don't want to eat something but when they try it without knowing what it is, they like it. I tested it on my mom, she liked everything I cooked until I told her what it is. You need to eat elk brain if you would like to be better elk hunter, you will think like elk when you eat its brain : )))

    I eat heart and liver, and just recently tried deer tongue. Didn't care for the tongue. Probably won't be eating brains or intestines any time soon
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    Deer: backstraps into steaks, the rest into burger. No guts of any kind.
    Elk: backstraps into steaks, roasts, the rest into burger. No guts of any kind.
    I’ve only shot one antelope and a sheep. They both turned into pepperoni sticks, the only way they were going to be consumed by my family. I still have elk burger from my ‘15 elk.

    x 2 . could be that we were just born with enough brains to not crave more.lol.

    I would try most things once but brains is something I would not try
