Default Freezing meat that is already cooked

I killed a little yearling yesterday. It was all that showed up and I wasn't going to shoot, but the landowner wants everything gone. It probably weighed 30# once I dressed it so I was thinking about boiling all of the meat off of the bones and put it in freezer bags along with some of the broth and freezing it. Use it in soups and stews. Would that work?

Why not freeze it raw? Also the broth has a very short shelf life even in the freezer.

Yeah cube it or steak it up and cyro-vac if you can. Leaves you more options.

I just thought boiling the meat off of the bone would be quicker than deboning it. I might just make a pot of vegetable soup with it and give some to my daughter, my Mom and Dad and a friend or 2. Should make a big pot full.

it would be harder and longer to boil it until it falls off the bones and then cool it down to bag and freeze it only to taste like $hit.
de boning is very easy on Deer , watch some youtube and vacuum seal if it is only a 30 Lb Bambi which is so tender already

If that is the route you want to go, can it.

Default Bone it and pressure can it.

It will be super tender and can be used for lots of recipes. I am sure you can find canning instructions for venison on "MOTHER EARTH NEWS."

We can chickens, rabbits, beef, Amber Jacks, YF Tuna and sometimes Cobia. Actually, I ate so much Cobia growing up that I never keep them unless somebody on the boat wants them. Long time ago we canned most of a 300# Blue Marlin. As I recall, it was fine.

We've canned Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Mullet and even Suckers.

I've eaten fish pattties made with canned Ladyfish.

Canning deer meat is best if done with cold pack method. And we only use pure red meat. Boiling with bones and all the white tissue will leave a strong game taste in the meat.

I don't think I'd boil it off the bone... Debone it and vacuum seal it. Then if you like make a bone broth with veggies and such and freeze it too. Lots of healthy goodness in a bone broth.
