  • For you city folk that think that meat comes from a supermarket this is not strange. Those of us that grew up in the back woods learn how to use a gun and a knife and how to gut the creatures that we take from nature at an early age. Helped with my first Steer when I was five.

  • My 2 boys tagged 3 deer this year after the first three years of being shutout. Between the buck mount and processing, we're going to have a grand in deer cost this year. We don't have all the meat back yet, but we got the fresh meat back. Still missing the sausage and the smoked meat (but it's ready for pickup)

  • "A hunter will pay about $70 for "standard process" for an 85-pound deer. "

    That's processed weight, right? If not, that might explain why so many Texans come to Colorado to hunt, the local deer are friggin tiny.

    Don't be silly. Meat comes from a plant and is cut up by Mexicans and Somalis.

    So you're a spitter, not a swallower?

    Yeah, but they're *so much tighter*.....

    i grew up minutes outside of NYC. i too learned how to use a knife and a gun at a very young age. i never used the phrase "gut the creatures that we take from nature at an early age" but I believe i can relate to where you're coming from.

    I'm a city folk (currently live in Chicago, grew up in the burbs) and I was taught at a young age to hunt, fish, clean, and butcher animals. Growing up, all my friends were a combination of morbidly curious and grossed out whenever I would show them a deer hanging in the garage waiting to be butchered.

    But I agree with what you're saying. City folks tend to have little common sense when they're outside their element of concrete and steel

    They are pretty small. The ones on site at NASA look like horned great danes.

    nice, +1.

    When I lived in Kodiak, Alaska, I was amazed by how small Sitka deer were compared to the typical Illinois white tails. Everything else in the state is huge, but the deer were pipsqueaks.

    I grew up in Iowa and learned how to use a gun at a very young age.
     
    Now I live in NYC and learned how to use a credit card to purchase game at Citarella and farmer's markets.

    No. I tried eating a Verizon once. Many people spoke highly of it, but it was just overpriced and overhyped. All gristle, no meat.

    Yeah, South Texas deer are really small. If a field dressed one is over 125 pounds then you got a big one.

    Would love to shoot at larger ones. Not sure about hauling them out of the woods.
  • My friend hunts, but he must be pretty crappy at it, or very selfish because he hasn't offered me any venison jerky yet. I am beginning to become suspicious.

    I think the first rule of hunting is that you must drive at least two hours away from where you are to get a "good" deer.

    Yeah. You don't really want to know how much that venison cost you on a per pound basis.

    - Truck
    - Lease
    - Rifle
    - Bullets
    - License
    - Clothing
    - Deer blind
    - Deer feeders
    - Game Camera
    - Camping gear
    - Knives/processing equipment
    - etc. etc. etc.

    Actually like just sitting in the blind when it is quite and with good friends. Poker and beer and night
