How is he eating?

Beautiful Deer. Pretty fancy hunting digs, is that private property?

I was hoping to take a cull deer this year and let this one daddy a bunch of does for the next couple of years.



Unfortunately, life happens and I didn't set foot in the woods during deer season. No venison this year.

That guy was made into potato sausage, but we got some does and they are tender and sweet!

Nice fat buck! Would have liked to see you gut it on that video...would have been a learning experience for those who have never done.

Well, my new muzzle loeader video I posted yesterday has a segment on this. However, I did edit out the hardest part - pulling out the heart and lungs. If you get through that video version of field dressing a deer, and still want to see the rest of it, I could post it up for you.

Oh, and that property I leased. $500 a forty. I hope you can get out next year!

I've gut quite a few deer, so not so much thinking of MY learning experience...just for others. Figured with a nice camera like that, you could do a good video of the gutting, skinning and processing for those who truly want to learn self sufficient living and harvesting food from the land.

Ok. I really didn't record it as a tutorial though. Next year I'll talk my way through one.
