During a recent chat with a good friend & fellow hunter currently traveling in China, he mentioned he had the unpleasant experience to try 'three pizzle wine' made from as it states 3 deer pizzles, it's apparently good for memory and used as a tonic for muscle injuries, anyone tried it?
i am not at all impressed with or condone in any way some of the Chinese medicine traditions that utilize our endangered species and the animal cruelty they favor, however some of there age old medicinal knowledge has proved itself in modern medicine and so i believe it should be available to those who wish to try it.
I wondered just how much of the carcass from our deer we actually use? we all i am sure are aware of the need in times gone by of more than just the venison for meat, does anyone on this forum utilize bone, antler, hide, blood, sinew, etc? May be interesting to hear of your experiences.
