I've caught him hearing so I think the hearing issues are more like ignoring issues.
Sleep is a lot more sound than it used to be. He probably heard the grinder come out and was dreaming about it.

Do I remember correctly that you process venison? Or is that just plain beef? Your title suggests it is seasonal so I'll stick with my first guess.
I'm the only one in my family that hunts with a camera instead of a weapon. Considerable, since I have 5 sib's. and both parents, and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces that all hunt. Oh, I enjoy the game feasts, but I can't be bothered to freeze my buns off.
I'm amazed he doesn't just take. I eat on the couch and sometimes his nose gets very close making me think I'm about to lose the plate, but he's been an extremely good dog. He hasn't even made a mistake of grabbing something he thought was being handed to him, he always hesitates to check first.
When he first discovered I dropped stuff while grinding his head would get too close under the grinder so he'd get bonked while I cranked it.
The real strange thing is he never liked retrieving rabbits or pheasant if they were too bloody, but raw meat is A-OK.
It is deer.
Freeze your buns off in NC?
If it was cold there I could relate, once I started having better success with archery I stopped hunting with a gun and the cold was the main reason.
We use the term "Hoping" instead of begging. Seems to fit here as well.
Hoping perfectly describes it when you take a large chunk out to cut up.
I think it's attempts at mind control, "Drop it. Drop it now!"
Here's one for you, Demonica.
