Those already look great!

 

You sure get a lot of Geese!

Beltzville?

Mauch Chunk Res.?

Lehigh River?

Or all 3.

 

We have a bunch of locals around here, but the travelers don't usually land much in this area, unless it's real foggy.

My kid has to chase them out of his pond, because his Newfie is getting old, and if he goes in the pond after the geese, his hair absorbs so much water that he gets too heavy, and needs help getting out!

Nepas, do you use a metal detector before you grind? Looks like you are pretty experienced at grinding geese but I would just caution you to be very careful. I have ruined two cheaper grinders by hitting steel pellets. I now have the 1hp cabelas grinder and I really don't want to break that one. So I invested in a good metal detector, I still have 60lbs of geese in the freezer that I just cant bring myself to grind yet. Those nasty birds sure do make good sausage though. Your SS looks really good, sweet smoker by the way!

Thanks

 

Yeah i use a Little Wizard for locating shot. Been metal detecting for 30 years, just cant bring myself to get one of my high end detectors all bloody.

 

My Cabelas grinder did find a pellet once, i cought it just as i heard it hit the blade and stuck a bowl under it and got it all. Had to take down the auger and clean but no biggie. Didnt find any shot in this batch. Got 100 lbs yet frozen to do.

I cut off both ends of the chubs before vac sealing so the sharp dry casing ends dont puncture the bags. Now ready for the hunting crew for the game on sunday.
