Yes they would (eat venison) if they came upon it. I've had them drop down on a pile of rabbit guts not 100 yds from my house (I had put the guts out after a good day's rabbit hunting, thinking that the vultures would have a good time). Marsh hawk stopped by for a chew too.
Don't think there's a tractor named after rabbit guts, but who knows.
The passing of a parent is hard on everyone, just some of us don't know how we feel about until later. Even a bad parent's passing is a loss, much more so a good parent.
