If I had it, you could have it. We don't make bologna out of our deer, though I've heard of folks doing that. We love the taste of the meat too much to change it that way, though we do use the stringier parts for jerky each year.
What are you canning now? - Page 1056
That's a LOT of applesauce! How wonderful! This was a GREAT year for apples and I thank the Lord for it. We harvested another load of apples the other day as well, all put to good use.
Congrats on the meat, never canned deer meat, we always freeze of make jerky.
We got 2 does last year, one was a wolf(oops, what kind of dear go INTO hunting camp at night???). Dad shot both of them, a person from next to our camp went down to see how big the wolf was, since we wouldnt have shot it except for their 4 dogs running around during the day. He came up laughing about our wolf and how it changed to a doe, so we slapped another tag on it. Going up for my second time hunting this year, hope I get to do more the dress the deer and package this year.
How cool is that? If we could get all the deer to come TO the hunter and he doesn't even have to leave camp, how easy hunting would be!
The mental image of the shovel beating made me smile. Been there plenty of times!
