Just like that, we have two deer in the freezer. Correction, we have one deer aging and one deer at the processor. Dustin processed a small button that he shot Thursday night. He’s letting it age in the fridge before he packages and freezes. It is unseasonably warm here, hence the aging in the fridge. He wanted to try to age it outside, but that just spelled disaster with these warm temps. Last night, he did slice up some for jerky which will go in the dehydrator tonight. Saturday morning, he took down a nice sized doe. She went to the processor. We just used our last burger, and only a few summer sausage sticks remain, so it was a timely harvest! Hopefully, we’ll have our meat back before the move…
Still no buck this year, but Dustin is not deterred. Another cold snap is forecasted to pass through our area this week. It should make for nice Thanksgiving weekend hunting. Hopefully, he can get a BBD and put a cap on another successful deer season.
Focusing on the positives today is my goal. Life’s lemons are sure making me pucker, but at least we will not starve 🙂
