3 County Boys Score a Double


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Sat. morning had a buck down at 0945 and a doe at 1000. Had them processed by noon and had lunch and listened to the ball game. I came back home but the other two guys stayed out for an evening hunt. It feels good to have some ven in the freezer, well, she is still in the cooler if you want to get technical. She won't make the freezer till after church tomorrow.

Still liv'in the dream. Camping and hunting. It just don't get no better.

Your weekend is a wonderful reminder that I'm stuck in the middle of the Twin Cities and won't see any hunting for awhile. Oh well, at least someone is having a good time .

Question... why don't you field dress your deer on-the-spot?

Did you get them with the bow, or is gun season open now? Congratulations by the way!

a Double

Very nice Chief.

Is that really you? You look so much taller in your posts.

And I'll second the question on dressing the deer.

It's only 10 min. to the skinning pole and it is not as messy for us to do the gutting there so we can get the remains to a central local. don't worry. If I was going to be more than 30 min to get it cooled out or had to drag the rascal more than 50 yds, I would be field dressing.

Gun season has been open since Sept. 1 in the lower state. These were with the rifle.

Now that I look at my original post I see why you guys are questioning the timing of the processing. I was kinda wondering why things were done as they were myself. Let me explain.

With two deer down and one skinning pole, there were issues that I did not think of at that moment. My buddy sacrificed his quick cool down to insure my deer got done first. He could have dressed his but decided not to. He had made a shot that had opened up the bad stuff and he knew it. I did not. When we got to the pole he insisted we do mine first. It was not very warm Sat. morning but I fear that the wait in processing mine down to quartering after skinning, which takes extra time, may have affected his meat quality. I sure hope not. Only time will tell. The up side is, we will have more chili dinners in camp if it is a little tainted.

My deer was quartered and on ice in 30 min. It was shot broadside and behind the shoulder so no meat was lost at all. She ran nearly 100 yds and bleed out along the way. She will be delectable.

We sure have some savy meat hunters on this sight.

The doe I shot did not have a lot of fat but she was still nursing so she was a little lean. The buck was very fat and it was more fat than I had seen in a while. The area has constant water and the neighbors feed as we do during season but it has been a good green spring in that area of the state.
