Whitetail Opening Weekend

Postby OldUsedParts » Thu Nov 02, 2017 5:32 pm

Back when I was a Deer Bagger, I thought that it should be a National Holiday but those were the days and they have long since gone.

So for Y'all that still enjoy the Harvest, Adventure and Fellowship, have a Safe and Enjoyable Hunt/Trip.

No longer care for the taste of venison, so I no longer kill deer. Just me I guess, but as I have gotten older it just doesn't make sense to me except for survival.. If they were to put a bounty on Isis I'd never have to work another day in my life. :D :D

I go out to my brother and nephews and pop a doe. I used to be a horn hunter and a good one. Too expensive for me anymore. I still like backstrap, chili and summer sausage from venison. Does eat good!

Back right before I just decided to stop Deer Hunting, my youngest son and I would put 5 deer "EACH" (10 total) in my freezer every season. We both loved the taste and still do and we knew how to dress, process and cook each cut the way they're supposed to be done. He will be headed to their East Texas Piney Woods Lease this ennin and I sure hope I get some Bambi cuts soon. :salut:

B.C. speaking of Does, here's a funny for you.
Back in 2005 I was a Single Feller living on a small 7ac place 12 miles west of Lampasas. One day I saw an ad in the local rag from a local Rancher offering Does for $100 a piece. So I called my two sons and told them that I would pay for the "Kills" if they wanted to come out and all harvest some Meat. They jumped all over that and showed up at my doorsteps a couple of afternoons later. We all three decided to kill 2 apiece but as it turned out we ended up with 7 all toll. We loaded them in the back of my Nissan, laughing, rejoicing and so proud of ourselves. When we got to my house it was 3:30pm and my youngest son said "Hope Y'all realize what we'll be doing for the next several hours." We had a big laugh and kept saying "well it seemed like a good idea at the time" :banghead: :laughing7: :D :lol: All 7 were cleaned, quartered and packed in Ice by dark. Lots of work but WHAT FUN WITH MY SONS. They next day my youngest said "Dad can you still make cream gravy?" - - I answered "Yup" - - he replied "then how about we chicken fry a couple of those backstraps?" - - - - I called my older retired neighbor and invited him over - - - "DANG" that little old man could eat. :D Sorry for the memory rambling.
