Well the good Lord has blessed me again with one of his wonderful creatures. Shot this guy during Muzzleloader this last weekend. I couldn't believe it when he walked out as I never had a chance to check my cameras so had no idea he was even around. LOL. The last pic is of him 8 days before I actually got a shot on him. I pulled the camera pics after the Saturday hunt. What a beautiful buck!!! I am blessed.

Yeah he was right at 19 inch inside spread. We think he was a bit older as his tine length was really not very good for his size. And his face was very grey. But best buck I've ever shot for Muzzleloader by far!!

Took my buck on opening day of bow, and 3 does during the first 2 weeks of the season. Can take one more doe during muzzleloader which starts here Dec 7. Kinda rushed the season because I will miss a bit recovering from some scheduled minor surgery. Life is good on the farm!

We hunt in the north part about 45 minutes North of Batesville. If you can get on them we have some big bucks up North verses down south. It's like night and day size wise. It has to be the terrain they are in up north and maybe better food I don't know but they sure are bigger up north. And I know how big them Kansas bucks can get I would love to hunt up there one time. Ya'll got some monsters!!

I grew up on the other side of the fence from the army ammunition plant (14000 arces). It was restricted hunting my whole childhood. They just started opening it up the last few years. There is some monster that have been growing in there.

While age and gender has a definite affect on meat quality. The diet the deer has been eating, a clean shot, and good field dressing and butchering is even more important to final eat-ability. My late father-in-law once spent a day trimming meat from an older buck that was thawed in the refrigerator. It was the best meat we ever had. He removed all the white connective tissue, and even the undiluted ground meat tasted like high quality lean beef. I have never had the patience for this myself, but we sure appreciated his efforts.

It takes me most of a day to trim connective tissue and get it ready to grind up, but itís worth it . Plus we age it for two weeks before grinding it.

Wife typically butchers within one day and age during thaw in refrigerator. We don't grind at all anymore. Neither of us have the patience to trim out all of the connective tissue. Folks seem to enjoy the jerky though.

Funny thing is, I did not marry one that will butcher anything lol. Won't clean a deer or a fish. And these days I don't want to clean and butcher a deer either. She won't eat deer, elk, rabbit, squirrel, duck and or quail. But she does like to eat those big cnbg and she also likes fried up lmb. She's Not outdoorsy at all. She is real girly if you know what I mean. smile

My wife did not grow up doing this. My first deer (a small-racked 7-point with a massive body) was taken with a bow in the evening of my first year hunting when my wife was about 6 months pregnant with our first child. While it did not go far, my tracking skills were not so good and I thought it ran off. My wife found it the next morning and by the time I got home after she called me at work, she had it field dressed and loaded in the pickup truck. When we checked it and found out the butchering cost, she said to let her do it. I do not know how many deer she has handled over the last 25 years, but it must be close to 100. She eats most of the meat and the dogs get what most discard. We have shared both meat and field-dressed deer with friends and the needy as well. My wife is always outside (even now) and enjoys splitting firewood with a Monster Mall. Somebody around here needs to work? Come to think of it, she drives a Jeep and I drive a Miata. A far cry from my high-school sports years:) Once in a while she does ask for help...

^^^^^That right there^^^^^

There's a world of difference in flavor between a midwestern whitetail that grew up on field crops and acorns, and a western muley that grew up on sage and briars.

Nice buck, RC.

I've been so busy the last couple years I've left the deer harvesting to Mrs. Augie.
They come up in the yard and eat her hostas, so it's a vengeance thing with her to kill every last one of em.

We hunt in the rockies and when we kill a muley we about have to make jerky out of the entire animal-not a bad thing but as Augie says, Pinecones vs. corn, beans, sunflowers and pears just don't convert the same. :-))
