    Default Wanted! Game Hearts

    I am looking for game hearts. Needed for my daughters bio class.

    Need Moose, Bear, Caribou, Sheep ( hopefully I can get this one), goat, bison, musk ox, etc....

    Thanks

    I'll get the word out amongst my friends. My son took his deer heart into class on Thursday and they had a great time dissecting it.

    Ah....you beat me to it. Last year I managed to get ahold of 5 moose hearts, and it was really helpful during our rat dissection to be able to have the kids poke and prod at a large heart to solidify concepts that couldn't really be seen with a rat.

    So...if get more than you need, Troy, send 'em my way. Species is unimportant, as long as they're deer-sized or larger.

    Default Agreed

    As a retired biology teacher I heartily concur - there are some things that just can't be substituted for. Get those hearts and - go at it!!!!!!

    But they are some of the best eating cuts.

    Does it matter if they have an additional hole? The animals I take tend to.

    Default In my belly!

    I like hearts ... In my belly! Great eating! Sometimes you can get whole cow hearts at butcher shops, great size for dissection.

    All the Best,
    Rich
