I'm just a mountain man poser. Like the CPA that has a set of black leather biker gear in the closet for two weekends a year.

Just an FYI! I have not killed a deer in over three years . Though it appears I could learn to harvest muskrat with all the swamp around! Anyhoo, the buck I got with my bow in 2015 and vacuum sealed is still incredibly delicious. I just defrosted my freezer and found the rest of it, about 25 meals worth! No freezer burn, though it is getting close to it!

Come down here next fall, killing a deer here is hard to avoid. Just drive around awhile, one will volunteer and commit hari kari on your truck.

I usually have a chance at some "roadkill" steak every now and again around here. My biggest problem has been finding time to hunt, and my new bow has yet to launch an arrow off the range!

Faithful Attendance Schibbs That's what gets em. Big deer up your way. They moved some Wisconsin deer down to N. Georgia many moons ago in an attempt to put some good genes in those mountain deer.

I am with you on the faithful attendance. I had been nailing one or three every year here on the farm till my sister and brother-in-law lost their dairy and they had to sell the 50 or so acres of woods that I had groomed and nurtured for the last 13 years. Talk about a pissed off white boy when the guy who won the bid on the woods was the asshole neighbor kid! I was fit to be tied! There are some really nice deer up here, but hunting land is prime and people come to blows over it. The whole internet thing has outpriced the land and the leases around here!

That's the truth right there. If you're not hunting your own property or have permission from another landowner it sucks. The hunting clubs are everywhere. I've had run ins with them. MOST landowners are reasonable if you just ask and let them know you hunt responsibly and wont fire a 30/06 toward there house or livestock.

Growing up here you could just about park anywhere alongside the road and go in the woods anywhere. Those days are over.

Shame you groomed that land and family lost it.

Most of the dairy farms in my area have gone under or sold out to big corporate farms which are milking tons of cows. I am from Colorado and have never gotten use to this type of hunting pressure and this amount of assholes. I found a spot several years ago north and west of me in a huge swamp. I hiked in or road my mountain bike. Tons of deer, spooky freaking land, but brutal to get one out of there by myself . I will go back in there next year.

Schibbs, save your breath and come up here - 155 acres with half a dozen proven stands, every one of them accessible by my tractor.

You have been up here, you know what the lay of our land is. Every friend or relative who has hunted here has taken one or more trophy bucks.

I have been hunting alone the past three years. Sure would like to have another hunting partner.

Lefty, I would love to hunt up there. Am sorry you have been hunting alone, but that does have it's perks as the solitude can be therapeutic. I am done cleaning the factory next week. I have some electrical work to finish for Ma and Pa. I will make a trip north after that and stop by on either my way through or back from visiting a friend in Rhinelander. Good to see your posts on here! Hope all is as well as can be expected!

A tax payer was kind enough to sacrifice the front bumper and hood in slaying a deer for my coworkers and I a few weeks ago. He was more than happy to give us the animal to “deal with”. It was a nice sized doe. The backstrap was fucking huge(and delicious).

Deer sausage, back strap and “boo- dan”. Sometimes, it’s a real sacrifice to do this job.

I miss the occasional elk roadkill from the high country. Usually , an unsuspecting tourist driving too fast or some chick on her cellphone. Elk and moose will seriously mess up your rig, but the backstraps are freaking huge and the DOW was more than happy to get the carcass away from the road.

How many people a year die from hitting elk? We lose people to horses and cows getting out and someone smacking it.

But I bet that shit is tasty!!!

It’s normally pork based. Turkey boudain is pretty much vegan around here

I’ll see if I can scrounge up a turkey recipe.

I honestly do not know the statistics on that. While I was in Grand County, Co for over 25 years I did not recall a traffic fatality by large game, or forgot. I was an EMT for awhile and saw a few accidents.
Tasty is an understatement, but the crop fed venison in the midwest and east is hard to beat for flavor. Mule deer in the high country, not so much.
