I've been researching for close to three years now and plan to go hunting for the first time this fall. I'm hunting Deer and have the theoretical knowledge to, track (to some degree), shoot, dress, skin, remove sinew, butcher, brain tan, and utilize the majority of the Deer. I'd love to know more before I actually go out, however.
How does one preserve the stomach, as the Cherokee did, to use as a container?
Is there a way to preserve and use the esophagus?
What is the safest way to clean intestines for making sausage?
Can the bladder be used in a similar way as the stomach?
Are there any uses for the remaining organs not usually eaten, ie lungs etc?
I'm trying to have as little waste as possible, I've even found uses for the urine and scat. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
J. Cooper

The heart and liver are good fried. Don't know about the other stuff.

Thanks Harrod! I'll keep that in mind if I get lucky this year.

You can use all of the above but the problem is... how authentic do you want to be? The Natives rinsed the bladder and filled it with water... you cannot let it dry out or it will get hard. The intestines were emptied, turned inside out and rinsed, then re-filled...once again you cannot let it dry out. The somach is the same... you empty it, rinse it, and refill it... never let it dry out or all of the above will be like shrunk up little rocks... or moldy if it is humid. They used these things right away and bacteria had no meaning to them.

The urine and poop can be used for deer scent."Mock scraps" are easy to make to get the deer to stop for a good shot.Pour some urine on a drag rag when you walk through the woods to near your spot,hang on a branch,and hunt near it.Deer will sometimes follow the scent.Some people will use the tarsel glan on the rear leg for scent lureing.
You could use the gut pile as a lure for other animals that may come to it for food.
