10 weeks agoI went for 3-1/2 hours this morning and didn`t see anything but a stray black pit-bull with no collar. Nothing much was moving this morning not even the squirrels , I checked and reset my game camera and didn`t have any new pictures on it. I made sure it was working before I left. I didn`t hunt this afternoon, I may go back again in the morning. I don`t like sitting in there and not seeing anything ,but that is part of hunting, some good days and some bad days.
When I first started hunting deer when I was a kid you seldom ever saw any, and if you saw two or three a week that was a good week. Now they are abundant, and there aren`t many days in the woods you don`t see deer.
10 weeks agoAs far as the method of processing deer, the canning is not much harder than the cutting up and grinding and you can set the cans on the shelf and don`t have to worry about freezer space or freezer burn. I just get tired of doing all that work sometime, but actually I am pretty good and quick at it.
10 weeks agoI guess that`s why they call it hunting and not shooting. I get bored too easy to hunt from a stand. My ADD is still an issue I guess. LOL
10 weeks agoLots of times I get bored when I am not seeing any game while hunting from a stand and I have to force myself just to sit there and wait. Because it looks like deer just appear out of nowhere. I cannot hear them walking in the woods ,so I just have to rely on sight and movement detection to pick them up when they pass through. Most of the time if something moves in my vision path, I will see it, but I am sure some slip past me that I do not see.
I didn`t hunt this morning, I feel like I am getting sick and I have drainage down the back of my throat and am coughing some. So I am doing some Mucinex and Tylenol and I stayed off the stand this morning to try and knock this out before it gets a hold on me. I guess that bad wind and being pretty cold got the best of me the past two days, I know I don`t like hunting in the wind anyway.
10 weeks agoIt sucks that you`re sick, VT. Feel better.
10 weeks agoI didn`t hunt again this morning, I went to bed at 10pm last night and took another Mucinex max strength, I feel better this morning than I did yesterday, but I sound sick, voice real deep and kinda scratchy sounding.
There are a bunch of deer that hang around here at my brothers house, he feeds them daily. I fed them yesterday because he and my sister in law were gone shopping all day. Anyway long story short I haven`t seen any of them because of this wind that has been blowing, and someone has been hunting on the next property from my brothers doing some shooting. So these deer have been very skiddish and leary the past couple of days.
It is mostly does and their doe fawns, but I did see one nice buck out there this past Sunday, a perfect 6 or 8 point.
10 weeks agoThe wind is really kicking your butt, VT. That is unfortunate but you`ll get another one.
10 weeks agoDon`t know if I will or not dave . would not mind grinding up some more deer burger. It is real good for chili!!!
10 weeks agoChili. Tacos. Spaghetti. Hamburgers. The list goes on.
10 weeks agoYep, all those dishes too, use it for anything you would use beef in, just a lot leaner and better for you. I have won several local chili cookoffs with my venison chili, I put habaneros in it that I raised in my garden, It has a nice burn to it, not too hot when you first taste it but it heats up nicely by the time you chew and swallow.
