November 8, 2011; Tuesday - More Hunting in Montana (at home)

Just when I thought I was done cutting up animals, Keith shoots a 4x4 Buck about 08:30 this morning.  So, we sharpened the knifes and got the cutting boards out again.  This one went a lot faster than the Elk.  We finished de-boning and cutting by the end of the day and on Wednesday we ground up the hamburger, packaged all the meat, and it was in the freezer by noon.  I have several packages of Elk and Venison cut up, in the freezer, and ready for canning, but will not have time to can until we get back from Wisconsin.  We will be leaving on Tuesday, November 15th and returning after Thanksgiving.  Until then, we hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

CO's comments:  My 50 year old Remington, Model 600, in 308 caliber, still shoots fine.

4x4 Mule Deer taken on 11-8-2011
This buck had a deformed left, front, hoof;
we have never seen anything like that before

It is a lot easier cleaning your animal when it is hanging in a tree
rather than on the side of a mountain
