Deer Hunting

I know hunting is not for everyone, but here it is a way of life. So I hope I don't offend anyone with this photo but Richard got a deer this morning. It is a doe, but who cares, you can't eat the antlers anyway. My deep freeze was almost empty, so I am glad he got it.

He left around 5am and was back home a little after 9am. He is out in the back yard right now skinning it out and I have been digging out the freezer paper. When he is finished we will bring it in to cut up and package. I plan on grinding some into burger and jerky, the rest we will just cut up into steaks and stuff like that.

Hopefully I will get some sewing in later in the day.

Wow! That looks like a nice one. How is he carrying it on his back? I've never seen that done before. I could shoot a lot of deer with a bow off my back stoop. I see about 50 every morning!

Congratulations on the deer! Thanks for visiting and for the nice comments. I read some of your blog entries just now and have bookmarked your site to continue later.
You have a very nice family. Where abouts in Kentucky are you located? I couldn't reply to your question because you don't have your email enabled on your profile page.

Mmmmmm venison jerky!! LOVE IT! I think it's great that you guys can do all of the processing yourselves. Around here everyone just drops their deer off at a butcher.
