    Scharles don't worry about the city boy playing photo geek.
    I always loved venison but it;s got to be made just right. Had one bad experiance last year when somehow a guy managed to get hair in it. Now I'm country and all but C'mon.
    Cheesy how much $$ to tailgate with you if you cook some of that up?
    Anyone ever made bear sausage? I got some last year and wasn't my thing. I'm not sure if it wasn't made right or if it's just not good

    Cdnfavrefan, where are you from? My grandpa goes to a place in the UP that makes bear/duck/venison sausage, beef jerky, etc. It's awesome stuff.

    It can be very difficult to get all the hair out. Theres a meat shop right down the road from us that butchers deer, so i take it there. When i open a package, i inspect the meat, clean off any hair, and trim off the tallow. Fat on venison isn't good like it is on beef. Trust me, you have to be VERY diligent to make sure its all cleaned off.
    Now, CDN, i don't have any left in the freezer! Ate it all up already!
    I've never had bear, but i'd like to try it sometime. I had porcupine once, and it was not too bad, not great though. And you couldn't reheat it.....it tasted like pine needles!
    I have found that venison doesn't reheat well either. It gets tough and dried out fast. So i only cook up how much we are gonna eat at the time.
    I like to cook, and of course my wife likes that!

    Re: Wisconsin Bow Season opens Saturday

    I was a bow hunter and come from a deer hunting family, but I will always prefer beef over venison, maybe its because I ate so so much of it, and when we had venison in the freezer (alot of it) I was made NOT to buy beef, so I craved it....we also used to butcher our own deer, and make our own hamburger and jerky..

    The only other wild food I have eaten would be rabbit, thats really good if you like alot of widdle bones, you do have to cook it along time, I think anything that is wild you have to cook for a very long time....

    Re: Wisconsin Bow Season opens Saturday

    I used to make "tree rat" stew. I made it once, and didn't tell my wife what it was..............she really liked it! Then i told her what it was........she looked at me like THIS: :shock: But then she got over it, and we had it MANY times after that.















    (In case you don't know......it's squirrel stew!!!) :wink:

    Re: Wisconsin Bow Season opens Saturday

    I've got a neighbour like that, eats anything he gets his gun on. Squirrel, pigeons etc. I trapped a skunk yesterday maybe I should bring that to him.
    My uncle raises ostriches and that meat is very good. Taste like roast beef
    Work on a cattle farm so it's nice to eat something else then beef sometimes

    Re: Wisconsin Bow Season opens Saturday

    :oops: You are a wise one Cheesy. I only had ostrich once and was just saying I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. Even though it taste like roast beef it still has it's own flavor but everyone always asks what something strange taste like and it's usually roast beef or chicken. I guess I was thinking of some other meats I like, like sausage and ham. Sausage, ham and bacon all from one animal? Must be a Super Animal. LOL. :-?

    I didn't mean anything bad by it! It just tickled my funny bone is all!
    Your right.......i always here people say "It tastes like chicken" when describing alot of different meats.
    When i was a kid, we were so poor, that we owned ONE pig. So, in the morning, my Mom would take a cheese slicer out to the barn, and slice off a few pieces of bacon, then bandage him up. We had only ONE chicken too..........so for lunch Mom would make us some chicken soup. She would boil some water, then walk the chicken through it. :shock: :wink:

    Cheesy or Scharles what's the biggest mount you've ever got? I wish I could lie but I've only got a 6 point buck yet.

    I shot a 13 point buck opening day of last year's rifle season. I've had it mounted but haven't gotten the mount back from the taxidermist, should be coming soon though!!!

    My "biggy" is also a 6 pointer, but he has no brow tines. If he did, he would have been an 8. He has a 15inch inside spread, and weighed 165 pounds dressed. I got him, the doe that was running with him, a nubbin buck and another doe all on opening morning 1999 before 8:30 am. It was the best day of hunting i ever had, or probably will ever have!

    Re: Wisconsin Bow Season opens Saturday

    Well being that you hunt public land I'd say thats a trophy buck. Its very hard to get a good setup and establish some consistancy on public land. I know of places where there are hunters every hundred yards. When you're in that situation its pretty much luck, being in the right spot at the right time, but its more than likely not like that where you hunt, if you said you hunt by Hatfield. The toughest thing with public land is that if you let a smaller buck go, someone else will more than likely shoot it, so there isn't much of a chance for one to develop... But that sounds like quite the morning, it was also the year of my second hunting season...

    Ya that's the one thing I couldn't believe the first time I came to a Packer game. From the highway could see hunters every couple yards and right by the highway. Obviously some of your hunting laws are different then ours
