Well on the second day of the season, I got my deer. From a horn hunters perspective, its nothing. It is an 8 pointer believe it or not with 3 1/2 brow tines. But from a Meat Hunters perspective, it's meat in the freezer. A couple more and we will have enough meat to go thru to next season. Try to stay away from store bought as much as we can. Well like oneshot said, no pic, never happened, and I'm not much for pics of me, rather have them of the kids, but here is mine. This one and the daughters already cut up yesterday. Made the cuts into the proper food groups. Meat for sausage, steaks, roasts, jerky and some larger hind quarter cuts for pastrami. Oh yeah, going to give venison bacon a whirl too.
And then the best. Yesterday, I made a quick blind for the boy to sit down in our pasture. Made it out of 2 old combine tires. Worked pretty good actually. Sit in the middle and the sidewalls make a nice rest.
Boy came home after school and wanted to go hunting so off with the school clothes, on with the hunting close and down in the pasture he went. I was in the shop working on the old fridge that I am converting into a stump clone style smoker and was thinking, man it would be awesome if I heard him shoot. No more than 5 minutes later, Booom. I dropped my tools and went to the edge of the shop. There he was, standing in the tires. I said , well?
She's down he said. Needless to say, he was very very happy. After all, his sister was riding him since the opener about not getting one.
We have 3 more tags to fill. I hope we do cuz there are hot sticks to be made.
The boys doe, about 1 1/2 hours ago.
