    Now what to do with it..any suggestions?
    I'm leaning towards slow smoking the hams, and frying the backstraps for breakfast.

    My vote would be simply slow turned on a spit over a bed of hickory coals.

    Pack of buns...salt shaker...bottle of bbq sauce .....just carve a chunk & serve.

    Got to be some tender eating right there.

    Hell just skin it and put it on ice tonight then hang it out tomorrow. 90 degree weather we got coming ought to cook one up that small by the time a feller gets back home from work. Momma dead in the road?

    be hard to put a time on it ..... but keep a thermometer handy and when you hit 165-170 internal temp on the hams....should be about right.

    No, it was just standing in a ditch in the middle of the farm. Momma was no where around that I saw, but I didn't hang around long.

    I've ate a few fawns in early bow season. They are delicious but not much meat at all.
