This is 1/2 a deer.
Thankfully I don't have the gory detailed photos of how it came to be. This is a post butcher photo. A very professional butcher, wouldn't you agree?
Scott helped with the gutting, be-heading, de-footing and skinning.
I actually don't really know how I feel about this meat. I am having a little bit of a hard time not thinking of Bambi and Bambi's Mom. Such is the food chain to a thinking person. This is the first kill in the four or so years that Andy and Scott have been hunting together.
Tomorrow I foodsave and freeze most of it, and give some to Julie and Nick.
We have some venison meals in our immediate future.
