I shot a muntjac doe this morning.
She was acting perfectly normal and seems in good condition. However, on gralloching her I realised that the fat on both kidneys appears to have 'hardened off', per the pictures below. Has anyone seen this before?
In the second photo you can see the texture of the fat - it is very hard and grainy:
I haven't extracated the kidneys yet to see if they are okay underneath all of this as I wanted to hear any thoughts first.
Otherwise the carcase is in good condition and hanging in the chiller now
