Proud grandpa
« on: November 28, 2021, 02:05:27 PM »
My then 12 yr old grandson went hunting during a special youth season a few weeks back, with his other grandpa and he got a 5 pt buck.
Then this morning I took him hunting in my blueberry fields, trying to get a doe. Well, he did, he got a very large doe at about 35 yds. Both of these deer were shot with his other grandpa's 270, and both were 1 shot kills. He is now 13 and I dare say he's already a seasoned hunter.
He was in total control and  was totally safe all of the way, congratulations Logan. (by the way, Logan helped my start assembling my new sawmill, before his football practice started).

Good on him. And two proud grampas to boot.

'to boot' means extra or to add to it. Old English. ;)

We had the first steaks from his deer last night, unfortunately it was the first deer in over 60 that I've had to eat that was extremely tough. We'll grind the rest and make it into sausage. We like sausage!
Also, it's still 1 less deer feeding on the blueberry buds from about mid January until full bloom. According to an article I read from I believe Michigan State university (about 20 years ago) an adult deer consumes enough buds as they swell leading up to blossom time that they reduce the crop by over $1000.

My wife tried canning a batch of the tough venison, it came out tender and tasty. The only issue now will be if someone wants a rare or medium rare steak, it won't happen.

Canning is one of my favorite ways to process a deer. Tough or tender, itís all good once itís been canned. Warmed up with bbq sauce makes some good sandwiches in a hurry when company shows up.

Doc, be careful what you ask for (regarding the antlers), you just might get an answer that you donít like :D :-\
Trying harder everyday.

I've heard of antlered does, but alas, I've seen none. As I frequently say, you can't eat antlers.

Doc, not many does have antlers, in fact I've never seen one I knew to be a doe with antlers, but I've heard of it happening on rare occasions.

I took my grandson, now 13 hunting again this morning, this time, it was his first ever muzzleloader hunt. The only thing we saw was a red fox out shopping for breakfast. We watched it for about a minute before it disappeared down a blueberry row. Likely looking for mice, I hope he got his fill.
