Found a New Job on My Mill
« on: December 12, 2006, 07:25:02 AM »
I finally found a new job to add to my mill routine. While sawing I looked up and saw four deer grazing. Stop the mill got my rifle and dropped three of them. I love living in TN where you get three a day. Meat in the freezer and poplar on the mill.

Gotta love that in a sense.  However it kinda takes the fun out of the hunting scenario.  But I guess you can't be working and hunting at the same time (except in your case). digin_2 digin1

You gonna split them on the mill too? :D :D

Got to be a song in that somewhere  :D

Yea, on my property in ME once, not hunting season, I had 5 deer run along with my truck down the road. Something to be said about being urban.

If you lube with water I don't see why it would be a problem  :D I know people who use their shop bandsaws to process deer, or chainsaw with veg oil  :D

Yes, but what about the problems with the coyotes chewing up the mill night? :o

Maybe a nice perimeter of legholds disguised in the fresh sawdust from the day would deter coyotes from gnawing on the paint job.  Alternative Sawmill Products is going to be a big hit :D

When sawing deer steaks with the WM, is it best to quarter saw or rift saw?

In that case, how do you start, with them on their back and their feet in the air? :D

When do you turn them?

Sheesh!  What an opening! :D

I guess it is time for the rest of the story. My help has been asking me about Deer hunting since he had never been. When I shot the first about 175 yards two started to run across the field. I told my help holler at them He said huh. I said holler. He did and they stopped. I shot another. I told him do it again. He did and I dropped the third.
 He now understands that all you do is holler at a deer and they will stop for you to shoot.

well at least those three would ;D

now tom back to the steaks, (boy it did not take long to turn this into food)
if i was sawing steaks from a ham i would freeze the ham then take a piece 1x12 about 4 feet long and cut a 4 inch hole in it. then clamp that on the deck, bring the ham out and set the shank down in the hole. you could start sawing steaks off the top. any thickness you like. i am not sure about the quality of them because the muscles are going several different directions  in the ham. but it would make steaks non the less.

I think that is what is called a round steak. 

I was just wondering, if you put the deer on the sawmill bed with his feet up, and  started sliceing (you'd get round steak first),   When would you turn him.    And, would you turn him 90 or 180.

I guess you would have to pay a lot of attention to the grain. :P :-\

Ok, this is no fair.  I fall off a ladder while working to expand my saw mill building, get all busted and twisted up and miss a good chance at a BIG bear.  And you get 3 deer while sawing.  No Fair, foul time out. ;D ;D ;D ;D

See I told you guys that Murphy lives in my back pocket.

I just had to do it. I was back into sawing Poplar and sure enough there were two more deer showed up. I wonder it poplar atracts deer. Meat in the freezer and sawdust on the ground.

Since it seems best to saw deer steaks when frozen, is it cold enough to freeze outside or will you have cut up the deer and take it inside to freeze?
I assume you would use vegetable oil as lube or is it better to use olive oil?

Why not use butter?   Contented deer don't move around too fast, so the thing to do is run out there and milk them first.    You could tie the milk bottle to your foot and it would churn into deerbutter on your way back to the mill.  This would allow you to take your time getting the gun out of the truck and you would have blade lubricant too.

I think that is what is called a round steak. 

If you run the steaks through the edger, do you then get square steaks?
I eat a high-fiber diet.  Lots of sawdust!
