Re: mesh looking stuff inside a deer ??

I saw that early this spring when i saw a deer run into a fence and break its neck. Called the PGC to get permission to take it. I took it home and when i gutted her, it had a white spider web like mesh all over the lungs and smelled horrible. I threw it out

You are probably referring to the omentum. This thin layer has a lot of blood vessels to supply the bowel, takes on any infection in the abdominal cavity. We have the same thing.

It would not have been on the lungs though.

Another function is that it connects the abdominal organs so they all stay in place. Completely normal and necessary.

Re: mesh looking stuff inside a deer ??

This is what is commonly called caul fat in the culinary world. It is found in pigs, cows and sheep as well and is simply a thin fat membrane that covers the intestines. My guess is that not everyone notices it in their deer because deer are VERY lean to begin with and the membrane doesn't show much fat. It is probably only noticeable in deer with a very high fat diet. Chefs use this routinely to wrap meats and roasts. The fat melts when it cooks and seals the meat that it wraps and provides extra flavor and moisture.
