Hearts and tongues are some of the tastiest pieces of wild game that are typically left behind. During my last elk camp; six hunters harvested six bull elk and no one wanted the heart or tongues from their bulls. I happily scavenged each heart and tongue throughout the week. Each time I asked if I could have those pieces and was met with giggles or a “You really wanna eat that?!”. Since that time I have processed and enjoyed every single bite of the hearts and tongues from those bulls, one of my favorites being these Elk Heart and Tongue Empanadas. I shared some of my dished with the hunters from that camp and they were blown away. I have been told on more than one occasion “You won't be getting anymore hearts or tongues from me, these are too good not to take home”.
