Black Powder season has come in for our area, and my Dad is like a kid on Christmas Morning.
I also love deer season. While I don't often find myself in the woods, I have a deal with my Dad- I will pay for processing if he's willing to use one of his tags on a deer for me.
I got a call this morning that he had a doe down! With a bit of debating, we decided to have the meat processed as hamburger, minus the backstrap which is too delicious to waste in mixing up. We are going to split the meat from this doe, that way we both have delicious, healthy, clean meat for a reasonable price.
I teased my Dad that he needs to get back out there and get us another- I'd love to have the second cut in to steaks and sausage!
Hunting is such a great way to provide cheap, healthy meat for your family. I'm thinking that later on this week I may join my Dad in the woods. Even if you don't bring home dinner, it is absolutely amazing to watch these animals out in the fields. I wish I could take my camera, but I don't want to risk spooking them!
