Found some tips to help you out also...just print off for future reference:

Preparation, uses, and tips
Trim off all excess venison fat before cooking, as the fat contains the gamey taste. If some fat is desired, add beef or pork fat.

Tough meat can be tenderized by marinating it in acidic ingredients (for no more than 24 hours), or pounding it with a mallet to break down connective tissues.

Venison toughens quickly if overcooked or cooked at high heat. For best results, use a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the venison, making sure the thermometer is not touching a bone. Internal temperatures should be as follows when the venison is done:

.

Another old trick to rid the gamey taste is to soak in buttermilk for 8-12hrs.

And another source for the gamey taste, in addition to the fat (I wholeheartedly agree LLT!) is from excess blood.

One way to defeat that (although some people disagree) is to take the quarters, prior to processing and soak them in salty ice water for 4-6hrs prior to fully processing. This pulls a sigificant amount of blood out of the meat. I have never tried this after processing. But usually I just take the quarters and soak them overnight in a large ice chest and process that next morning.

This works well for me because we usually take the next day off after taking a deer to allow the other hunters in our party a better chance of bagging their own. 3 Thanksgivings ago I took a 7point opening morning and a friend of the family took an 8 pointer. We took the next day off and processed. Day 3 he and I went out and BOTH took one, this time I took a beautiful 8 point and he a 6 point. No one else took anything that year. What luck we had, unfortunately no one else shared in the same fortune. But we shared our take with everyone else.

Oh, we have a family hunting camp and cabin in the beautiful state of West Virginia. I truly love that place.

One of my FAVORITE recipes is:

Sprinkle tarragon and thyme, and a small amount of salt and pepper on thinly sliced venison steaks.

Pour Marsala cooking wine into a large skillet and sautee at a low temperature until done.

It's easy and oh-so-tasty! I like to fix long grain and wild rice, along with yeast rolls to go with this. Broccoli goes very well with this also.

You can also use the same recipe with a boneless, skinless chicken breast (unlike the venison, thicker IS better for the breast).

Thanks for the advice and the recipe Shooter! The meat was already processed but I'll mention your suggestion to my friend.

The recipe sounds yummy. I'll be giving that one a try.
