Went to the processor today. It is the last day of rifle. These came from Friday's deer. There was a lot there but I had no room as it is (this stuff is in the snow lol). There were over a hundred deer today waiting to be processed and more were coming in as hunters brought them. Can you imagine? Hundreds of deer ribs, necks, etc. Its like a dream. LOL.
My guy told me to come back in muzzleloader season (after Christmas) and I just might.
Jordann: I love your enthusiasm. Feeding raw makes you feel good about your dogs (and cats) nutrition, doesn't it? If only I could eat as healthy. (I am a work in progress).
I would NEVER feed carnivores. On top of what Natalie said, you have to worry about rabies, lepto, etc. Too many what ifs. Not to mention I think its creepy.
Going Postal: oh our deer population is crazy. That is how I can hunt so much. When you apply for a license here, you get a buck tag. Then you can apply for a doe tag. After that you can apply for a bonus doe tag, then you can apply again if there are any left. You can also apply for tags out of your area. For example, I hunt at a friend's farm and also public game lands. That is one area. Where I actually live is considered a different area and I would need different tags for it. Which means I could get ANOTHER tag. There are less deer where I live so my husband and I usually go to the farm/public area. My husband and I both got 4 tags this season which means we could get 8 deer between the 2 of us. CRAZY! We won't be filling our tags this year I don't think. He is out hunting all day today and then rifle is over. Muzzleloader is coming and you never know I guess.
