I truly love hunting with my bow and didn’t have a lot of luck this year like I did last year. I needed one more deer to make Sadie’s jerky. It’s not a seasoned meat at all, it just small strips of deer meat dried to perfection and given to her almost every day as a treat.
Today I plan to start the dehydrator and get this last meat dried and stored in the freezer in quart bags just for her. I have two tenderloins, two hams and one shoulder and a few minor scraps that I will put away for her. It’s very healthy with no spices or additives. this is why I freeze it; with no additives it would mold pretty quick, and I know this for a fact!!! I’ve heard that some dog treats that come from another country can make our dogs very sick. I take every precaution when it comes to my fur baby!

That’s a great idea! Making your own treats. I never buy my dogs treats from another country. Too risky!
Deer is very plentiful here and my husband and I both hunt and the last kill was for Sadie. No fat, no sugar, no additives, very good for her. I even can a few pints of chunks just for her with 1/2 t. salt to make sure it preserves well. I have a large tabletop dehydrator but before I got it, I dried it in the oven at 200* until dried. The dehydrator is much more economical.
