    This is an event for me every year.Meat season is upon me.Tomorrow is the first day of deer season here in WV.By tomorrow evening I will likely have several deer to process.This time of year is so special to me cause its a time to gather.I will surely be blessed to be in the company of friends and family who I rarely get to spend time with.Sharpen the knives,open the spirits,and pull a cork.I've got pork to work up this week also,maybe 350 to 400 lbs.worth.Damn I sure do like sausages.

    Hey Bill, If it wasn't so far, I would bring you some deer. The rut is starting here. On the way in tonight, I saw 3 bucks chasing does. Neighboring ranch killed a 150 buck and a college kid on this lease arrowed a 6 X 4 this afternoon. This 50 sections is all low fence with no suplimental feeding program. I am ready. I have my freezers almost full and am just waiting for ol big boy.

    I'm ashamed to say I missed my chance at a good one this afternoon.
    I was goofing off, talking on the phone to some friends in Texas......wondering around in the back yard. (deer hunting)
    Sure enough, across the road in front of the house were 5 does and a nice buck.
    By the time I got off the phone, got my rifle out...dashed through the house to get to the front yard, they were out of my range.

    Tomorrow, I will sit on the front porch. [​IMG]

    Well I went out Monday morning to my fav spot but alas no bucks,so I shot a jerky deer.Monday night a friend brought a nice 6 point and gave to me.Went out yesterday,it was 70 deg with high winds and the deer were hunkered down tight,never even saw one deer.I still have Fri and Sat which I will hunt hard.My huntin spot is on the way home from work so Ill hunt after work everyday next week.Id like to have at least 40 of 50 lbs to mix with beef and pork to make sausages.We like to can as much as possible and of course Ill make plenty of jerky for the children.I have to hide some if the wife and I want any cause those little buggers will eat it up as quick as I can make it.
