Got my deer :)

It was 2 years ago that I last got my deer during season but the dry spell ended on Sat. morning when this guy messed up and walked into my line of sight at 7:30am he will taste great in the crock pot.

Re: Got my deer :)

Not sure of the weight... took 2 of us to hike him up on the rope to the rafter to hang...guessing 150ish at least... maybe my meat processor will have a scale when I take it to him this week.

No different than you buying 5 lbs of steak and burger at the grocery store John... but this eliminates the middleman, shipping and chemicals processed into store bought food so often

Well done....Is it the roar over there at the moment?

Just a thought on that..
One has to give credit to veggietarians making such a stand...even if we may disagree with it..
But someone who is not a veggierarian, and can open their fridge or freezer with battery grown chicken, eggs, and similar for pork, beef, therefore must condone the keeping of animals in such inhumain conditions.....yet to take a beast that has grazed naturally, that due to its enviroment must be stalked and hunted down is wrong???
Sry I dont get the logic ...
Thu I can get it if simply hunting down for trophy and nothing gets taken for the table.. thats a waste
We are lucky, we dont have a season here...
hunting is primarly just getting out in the bush for a few or more days with good company, in hard and rugged country, meat, and anything beyond that is bonus...Something most dont get.

Well done Jim....dont forget the chocolate when cooking....

Re: Got my deer :)

John, if it's any consolation look at it like this; hunting equals population control. Without it, Bambi runs the risk of dying a slow, painful death due to starvation. I gave up hunting when I moved here to "brown town" from Pennsylvania, but I still defend it as being somewhat necessary.

I'm good with all that and definitely defend your rights to hunt. I guess a least for me it's the killing of a defenseless animal for sport that I don't get.

I've been told by guys it's for the meat but when we total the cost of the "hunt" that reason doesn't hold water.

I'm no tree Hugger and love a good steak.

To the OP congrats on your success. God bless America that you are able.

Re: Got my deer :)

Cost of the hunt? About .35cents for the 1 bullet it took. A clean, immediate kill too, no suffering at all. Good luck to others and hope they all take their game only for the food. I dont troply hunt at all.

Re: Got my deer :)

I got a coon the other night. Unfortunately it was with my car. Fortunately it wasn't the Camaro.

Re: Got my deer :)

Good job Jim. I haven't harvested anything yet with my bow. Have passed on some "smallish" bucks, waiting for a wall hanger. Will probably end up taking a doe or two just to help keep the numbers down. But we had a fairly significant deer kill from disease (related to drought) earlier in the year.

Re: Got my deer :)

Nice buck. I had to burn my days off for deer season to go to a wedding my wife was in. Which really chapped my rear end. For second season my daughter is having surgery, which just makes me sad. Only other time I've missed deer season was when I was deployed. Now I'm just sad, pumpkin beer inbound.
