Do you remove glands when processing wild game?

Steve from Chandler, AZ asked:

My buddy and I have processed four mule deer on our own now. He was always taught to take out some type of gland in the rear hind quarters. I have your processing videos and have not seen you do this. Do you know anything about this gland and is it necessary to take it out? It doesn't look very appetizing! Thanks for your help.


I always remove all the glands that I find in my game meats. There's danger from a health perspective plus they do have a very unappetizing look to them! So yes I remove all the glands I find in my game meats. Good luck this season!
