Celebrating the hunt

Posted by bostonlobsterman, Dec 2, 2016.

To celebrate the. Buck hanging in my garage from this morning' hunt, I decided to be brave and saber the 25 year old Cooks that was recently found in my basement. Yep Cooks, you heard that correct. Plenty of pressure and a clean break. Nice bubbles and a golden almost not quite pinkish hue. Very earthy with a hint of cranberry. I like it. Cheap old shit.

Bursting a gut laughing, a friend makes lamps out of the legs so no body part goes wasted. I will stop right there.

Congrats on the buck.  They were few and far between up here this year, but our DNR went to the honor system this year by letting people register their deer on-line.  No way to tell how many were actually shot.

DV, ever cleaned a buck? Any idea how long that hose called a penis is on the boys?? You could stir a cocktail the size of an oil barrel with it. And that's only white tails. Guess how big on a wapiti.

A 5-pointer, BLM? Looks very healthy. How long's the MA season, and how many buck tags do you get?  Doe tags possible?

Sure seems like you just went out to get one, then got one real quick--at least as viewed over the internet. What kind of landscape was he prancing around in? And how much of the butchering will you do?

 

Cooks looks just fine, especially for the occasion. Sabering fits, too.  ;-)

DM,

No I haven't skinned a deer. I've never shot an animal.  I've nothing against hunting and using the animal for food etc.  I'm against it if it's simply for sport.  As you know, hunting in British Columbia is huge, but being born and raised in the city doesn't foster those instincts.  I'm glad BLM uses the whole thing! :)

I've always wondered about the morality of eating all sorts of vacuum-packed meat cuts from supermarket cases while denouncing the harvesting of wild animals that are local and abundant. Lots of drunken asshats who go hunting, but also plenty of mindful, thinking, respectful, responsible hunters. Totally with you (and BLM) on eating what you hunt. When I was growing up what we took from the countryside greatly enhanced our diet, since we were very cash poor and had been for several generations. A couple of white tail bucks went a long ways toward feeding a family of six through the winter. Ducks and quail and dove helped, too.

Anyway, the deer package is fairly impressive. Like quite a length of garden hose.

Oh, and I haven't killed wild mammal or fowl for many years, now. Doesn't seem to make sense in this country. Can't say the same for fish...

DM- it was an 8 actually with a really big Johnson. Archery starts mid october and muzzle loader runs to Dec 31. We get special access to a 20,000 military reservation for a week starting tomorrow. Several deer will be taken. The deer need to be thinned.  They run in the road and cause serious accidents.  They are a sustainable resource. We often pass on smaller deer because what is the point? The does are regulated by permit which is issued by lottery, zone by zone according to the population. Even so, I can assure you it is a challenge to get one.  I do it mainly to get outside deep into the woods.

DV-  indeed, I only take what will be eaten and there is no waste. Every tiny little scrap goes into jerkey. I do the butchering myself and will spend several hours on a single deer. Everything gets vacuum packed so it will last a whole year until the next harvest. The deer tend to be in thick briars during the daylight hunting hours, except during the rut when the bucks go crazy chasing the does.

Having priapism that long after death must be painful.

How'd the 'special access' hunt work out?

Hey DM-  thanks for asking. The take was 8 bucks and 3 does so far with one more day to go. Bitter cold though so we delayed the start. I got the first one on a fast running deer. The largest was 14 points literally at the last instance of light. We dressed in the dark. Thank goodness no tracking was needed and the haul out was not too long but through a swamp.

So how much meat do you already have this winter?

Chasing down an injured, even if fatally but not yet dead, deer is never fun. Especially in the dark but even in the daytime in brushy areas. Clean kills always best. Luck ran out at dusk for that 14ptr...

I am good on lean, unadultered protein for the next year. I like the group I hunt with. Spans several generations. Very responsible and accountable for all actions.
