    Deer bones not white like normal

    Just wondering if anyone else has seen this and can it mean the deer is unsafe to eat?

    Two different deer legs in slideshow, the one on the left looks normal to me and the one of the right looks darker?

    Looks fucked mate, did you get it cooled quickly? Did you take the joint apart if you didnt?

    Local deer? Did you look at any other organs etc? Under the ham there are lymph nodes. Were they swollen? Looks pretty grey.

    If in doubt, biff it out.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It might just be that Im viewing on my phone but looks normal where you have knifed meat off and like you got guts or grubby hands on the joint and stained the membrane over the joint?

    It seems all the membranes in this animal are the same grey, off white colour. I just took a couple of pics. One of the inside of the skin and the tendon. The tendon, end on is almost black. I am not going to eat it. Damn it all!
