Default Deer sausage wasteful??

I remember reading in a thread awhile back of someone saying that it is wasteful to make deer sausage with your kill. I dont understand that seeing as you mix it with pork for the fat content. It would seem you stretch it instead of wasting it. Thoughts?

most people i know mix deer meat with some pork for the fat content. deer meat by itself is usually too lean.

really not understanding their reasoning at all. makes no sense.

What ever goes unused or uneaten is wasteful.

Some folks may say that grinding up the loins or the hams, and turning it into sausage is a waste of some of the best potential use of the prime cuts that make good steaks or jerky, or stew meat. But using some of the less choice cuts for sausage to ensure minimal unused meat is not wasteful.

If you like deer sausage have deer sausage do yourself a big favor and pay little mind what other people think, they aren't eating it!

I would agree. What I like to do with the hind quarters is to take a large section of it (bone in) & cut slits all over it, stuff it with garlic, coat the whole outside with mustard & Tony Chachere seasoning & brown it real good all over on top of the stove, adding a little water at a time as needed, until it begins to produce its own gravy & gets very tender. Add some rice & some garlic bread..... Mmmmm... Nothins finer.... Geez, I've gone & made this a cooking thread! LOL.

That's what I was thinking.

Making sausage or burger actually is less wasteful than not making it. When people use the meat for said purpose they always use lots of little pieces that are tough that either get thrown out or fed to the dog. The rib cage on most deer get thrown out for example. When making ground meat we strip that off and throw it in the pot. Another example is the lower leg sections. Tough and not worth the time unless it is ground up.

So whoever made that statement is wrong and doesn't have a clue. I love it when I give a deer away and know they will be grinding some of it up as I know that the the whole deer will be used not just select sections.
