I never find the heart when I'm gun hunting (maybe I should stop using grandpa's reloads. lol)and most of the deer I've gotten with bow had defective hearts also, so it's been awhile, but I have had it and I've also just added it to my sausage/hot dog meat, as with myself and kids with yuck syndrome, what they don't know is good for 'em. lol Those defective hearts, shoulders and livers are always good for Jan. coyote hunting too, want not, waist not. Thaw out the coyote bait when you're ready to use it, keep as much blood with it as you can. Set a blind, make a bloody scent drag, lots of fun.
American by birth, hunter by choice.
