Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)
Circle of life.
Got to drive to Wapato today to pick up my second deer. She was a little bigger than the first one, yielding 10 pounds more of venison. The first one I did strictly steaks, chops and ground...this time I had 10 them do steaks, chops, 10 pounds of Italian sausage, and then do the rest as ground.
All total, the two does I shot this year gave us just over 80 pounds of venison in the freezer. For comparison, my boss shot a decent 4-point whitetail buck this last week, and I am sure he will get at least 80 pounds from that one deer...but mine is more tender.
While there, I also picked up some of the butcher shops usual fare, including bacon cheddar brats, and beef bacon, which I have never tried before. Reports on how that tastes to follow.
