    Thought I would share my gun season harvest... even though the big one got away... I still ended up with two. I tracked a 10 point Sunday, was on blood the whole way, and the darn thing was still alive. I let it sit about four hours before I started to track it. I'm sure it will be coyote food... but here are some pics of my food! I have some chilling for tonight... I have a choice tenderloin... or a roast? What do you think?

    This is the fawn that was harvested. I got her along with the doe she was with...

    Sorry if it's too much... but I rely on deer as a main source of our meat. Along with chickens and turkeys of course!

    The last pic is a few steaks and a couple of roast, the rest is going to the processor in the morning to be made into burger, sausage, hot dogs, jerkey, sticks, and trail baloney. YUM!

    Your hunting season must be a lil different then ours around here we arent allowed to hunt the fawns.. And I dont think by hunting season here they still are fawns... ( Just so you know I am not a hunter but my whole family does so I fully admit I dont know much about it.. ) It does look yummy I bet that tenderloin is sooo tender and juicy

    I'm not sure... here in Ohio though we have no regulations on what is taken except for the fact your only allowed one buck.

    Anything over 3 inches is considered a buck. This year we can take I believe 6 deer... depending on what region your in.

    No, she was running away from me and I hit her in the side... and what you see is the exit wound. Good shot right! LOL... purely luck!

    I shot the mom first and the fawn was running away... got them both with 3 shots... I missed the first shot. It's not easy hitting them on the run.

    Quote:In Ohio, "if it's brown it's down". I shot one a few years ago that fit in a 48 quart cooler. Best tasting deer I've ever eaten.

    LOL... must be a state wide motto!! Hahah.... The fawns do taste the best. Man what great meat, knocks the socks off of commercial beef anyday!

    Even though I can't wait until I get a fence up so I can raise a few beef cows!
