    To be honest no venison gets past the family so to answer that question, no I`ve never tried it, if you do try it you might have to beat snapping turtles off of it.

    A few years ago when I fishin for wallys a guy came to where I was fishin, opened a pack of frozen deer chops, cut them in chunks & I personally saw him catch about 8 channel cats on them. I tried the liver last year on about 3 or 4 outings & had no luck with it. I was getting good action on the cut chubs but not a thing on the liver. On one of the trips I had a peice of liver on for 8 hrs & when I finally took it off the hook it was still oozing blood.

    I am with Zeboman on this one. It would be hard to sneek any venison out for fishing with out getting scalded, lol.

    I have used scraps of deer meat trimmed off steaks. I soaked them with garlic powder overnight. I have caught many eating size cats.
