I love love LOVE venison. I particularly love it marinated in sake and soy sauce and grilled in big old chunks. But, without fail, it makes me, erm... not pleasant to be around afterward. The only thing worse than deer or elk steaks is pronghorn meat. Beans don't hold a candle.

I figure after I've said that, none of you will ever share a camp with me- but am I the only one? If not, anybody have an antidote?

Farts make life fun. I love to do it myself.

When you trim up that meat, make sure you get all the fascia off the meat. That stuff makes some people fart.

I wonder if just eating something your body ain't used to will make you fart too? Yesterday I ate beef for the first time in 9 months. Made me fart like a corn fed mule. I'm farting as I type this.

Except for an occassional can of tuna or potted meat (which really makes me fart!), I mostly eat deer and wild pork. Neither of those make me sing the mudbutt blues like greasy ground beef.

I eat Pronghorn and elk steaks and burger year round. Also venison (least favorite). I don't get gas with it

From: Fisher

Soy sauce usually contains MSG to which some people have the digestive reaction of extreme flatulence.

Check the ingredient list. If there is MSG, you may have your answer. Then you can decide if you wish to contine the fun or change marinades.

Best wishes.

For me only the jerky causes internal combustion... Fisher may have explained that.

I live on elk so if I were like you Nij I'd have alot less friends.

I eat elk year round. Never add any fat to my ground game meat either so it's 100%.

We haven't bought beef except for the occasional steak to grill in years.

Deer I usually turn into all jerky. Elk always steak and burgers.

I don't have many issues with gas except for if we have broccoli or fried onions with game meat. Usually black beans with enchiladas or tacos give me gas.

I also get the farts from venison but they don't stink.

From: Jack Harris
24-Feb-13
ummmm. ditto... Venison always seems to have that effect, and those I feed it to say the same..

Makes a great cover scent during the season, makes me invisible to the deer and of course I can't wear scentlok for that effect because we all know, the scent would never escape because those suits are just soooo effective :)

I only wear my scentlok when I don't have venison gas...

Mule Power,

I have to disagree. I haven't seen any threads about why is it when you gut a deer, elk, etc, within a few minutes, your farts smell like guts?!

Didn't mean to hijack this thread, if that is possible, but this is kind of in the same category!

From: Mule Power
24-Feb-13
I eat only elk and no added fat. My dogs enjoy 100% fat and sinew free deer including the backstraps. Do any of you windy guys notice a difference between the elk & the deer? I think the deer might have more of an energizing effect but just guessing. Poeple are shocked when I tell them I haven't eaten deer meat in over 15 years. I don't even like deer jerky or snack sticks.

24-Feb-13

No problems here. The only thing that effects me that way is oatmeal.

When I eat meat, irrespective of the species, I don't fart.

When I eat anything grown: beans, potatoes, veggies, and anything dairy, you can tie a string to my leg float me around.

It is the high protein and a function of your intestinal bacteria. Certainly very disturbing the effect of gutting or butchering on aroma. You paunch shoot one...you are on your own. Wife will kick me out.

After I shot my first moose I no longer eat deer unless it's jerky or summer sausage. I've been laughing so hard reading this that my wife asked me what's wrong. Really lmao!!!

24-Feb-13
I've been living on wild game most of my life and don't have any problems with more/less than with any other food. My ex-wife, however, walked around sounding like a marching band from deer and elk. Being Italian, she thought that was pretty cool.

As long as we're on the topic, getting my gall bladder removed significantly reduced the odoriferous aspects of that natural bodily function. Highly recommended..

To cut the cheese?

I wonder where that saying came from anyway? Probably Wisconsin, no offense to Mike the Cheesehead or anyone else up there.

Sorry for getting off topic on such an important subject. Didn't mean to smokescreen the thread or anything. It just happened.

From: Bou'bound
24-Feb-13
Not a gas issue but the looseness of the average stool is certainly more watery than when dining on fine beef or pork. It is an often cited ancillary benefit for those with hemmroids due to that fact. Far less tearing of the colon wall with venison based stool than with other meats that yield firmer stool. Excellent topic that not enough people are willing to openly discuss. Thanks for bringing this to the forefront.

Drink red wine with the meat. It may not cut down on the flatulence but will have added health benefits and after you finish the bottle, you really won't care who you offend.

I recall hearing that farts are like grandkids. You only like your own.

I heard it was toxic to not emit when necessary. Apparently those noxious vapors percolate through the body, rising to the top, and that's where "shi--y" ideas come from.

I shared that thought with my daughter.

I just read today that Louisiana no longer allows venison to be donated to food shelters. Seems somebody was offended they served venison. So in typical "we can't offend anyone" fashion, they opted to not allow deer meat to be fed to families who really appreciated the donated venison.

Woody,

I love it....the old Dutch Oven trick.

I live in a house full of girls so I feel it is my duty to make sure that my girls know how to act.

They both are well versed in farting (they are still learning how to crop dust) and mooning their mother.

They both also really like venison and LOVE wild turkey.

My 4 year old pitched a screaming fit the last time we had venison because she thought I was grilling medallions wrapped in bacon on the grill when she found out it was "just" marinated back strap she went bonkers.

Pronghorn has the same effect for me.

I recently read something that discussed the % of protein, fat etc... in various wild game meats and if I recall antelope was #1 and elk was #2 in highest protein lowest fat, and they were by a reasonably wide margin.

Guess I never really realized that the high protein = rocket fuel, but apparently antelope is just enough to get my furnace running. I don't recall the issue from deer or elk, or from antelope brats that are cut with pork, but pure antelope burger and steaks do it. It all makes sense now???!!!

Perhaps this thread served its purpose when it ran the first time... but I've noticed a somewhat startling development perhaps worth noting. My family has two deer in the freezer this year, with distinctly marked packaging. One generates fire down under, and the other doesn't. This seems strange to me. One is a doe and the other a buck, but no way that could do it...?

Alpha-gal syndrome is a recently identified type of food allergy to red meat. In the United States, the condition most often begins when a Lone Star tick bite transmits a sugar molecule called alpha-gal into the body. Just s thought.

On a separate note a friend that was in the navy way back said that they were in Australia during a warm spell. Everyone headed in for shore leave to get out of the hot ship. He said that ever bar had pickled eggs on there. When he came back from shore leave he couldn’t get below because of the sulphur cloud from beer and pickled eggs.
