I shot a lovely late season Roe Doe in Wiltshire with a gamekeeper friend at the weekend, she was in great condition and had a good amount of meat on her for a roe. I drove her the 290 miles or so home and skinned and jointed the carcass on Sunday in the garage suspended from an old boxing bag bracket on the wall. I froze a lot of the meat but brought a front leg up to the fridge to cook today, I was thinking of doing a stew or something similar when I remembered how much I liked my American friend Ty's mule deer venison chilli last year. I decided to do a chilli and the first order of business was to debone the meat and dice it fairly small.
The remaining scraps on the bone will serve as fox/crow bait this week.
