Probably because venison taste like shiat.

If you don't know where you are and don't have a compelling reason to plan on staying in the area why shoot a 80+ lbs creature. Unless you have a bunch of salt on hand or are suprisingly good at making smokey fires the meat will just spoil in about 36 hours and hualing it around is a lot of work. As long as you have a reasonable amount of ammo a 2 or 3 lbs rabbit or squirrel is way more convienat.

From TFA's report, Apparently he wasn't sure so he decided to to assume he wasn't and stayed where he was.

Hum never had shiat save perhaps in small ammounts on unwashed vegetables but venison is usually pretty good. Though have had it prepared by morons a few times where it was tough and fairly gamey but still edible. The real question is why is the max pooper eating shiat? You'd think given his title he'd know it was a waste product And not a fun one like alcohol.

/but never shoot no deer



Goofus stumbled through the door
He says he got a buck
He was coming from the wayside
And hit it with his truck
Musty cracked a beer and said
Let's celebrate
Goofus caught the first buck
Since 1968

Good for this guy. When I'm his age i'd give myself about four hours before I ended it.

You know how i know you had a scrub deer and not a corn fed....

+1. Eaten a bunch in CO, and a bunch in KS. Corn fed FTW. Although, the sage flavor isn't all bad.

You've just got to kick a man while he is down, don't you Subby?

/Well, I guess he's not down anymore.

2013-10-14 08:44:39 PM  
He didn't have enough energy to shoot the deer?  What?  Was he hunting them with a taser?
 
2013-10-14 08:48:48 PM  

vudukungfu: did he drink his own pee?


Pee? Pfft! That's for sissies.

I was once so hungry I ate my own shiat!

Beat that, Stroud. Suck it, Grylls!


/wasn't even lost - just got hungry watching tv

Subby said Lost twice.

/Subby must like terrible endings
 
2013-10-14 08:50:25 PM  
Strange that he has the wherewithall to survive like that, but be out of wits enough to have gotten lost in the first place.

This was opening day, I'm told it takes about 2 weeks to get to that point.

But he did do everything right. Was lost, didn't wander, ate what was available, kept warm with what was available.

This is the old man you want around when you fark up in the woods, really .

Yeah, but given the muzzle energy of the typical modern deer rifle round, what the fark would be left of a squirrel or rabbit?

That was a sane and cogent stance on hunting. What are you doing here?
 
2013-10-14 09:21:49 PM  
So is this a win for the deer or just a push?

You're not supposed to eat the rectum.

As pointed out already, it's all about the diet.  Acorns and scrub brush = nasty venison.  Sweet grass and apples = better than any beef.

Bark shot.

No, really.

Either headshot the squirrel or hit in the near vicinity, knocking bark back in its face, rendering it dead or unconscious, then butt check it on the ground.

When all you have is a 30 caliber rifle, you learn to use the 30 caliber rifle.

Better than beef? Sorry but that's hogwash. If version was any good it would be a commercially available meat product one could purchase at the grocery store.

You can't buy it at the grocery store because, save for a small population of people that think shooting a deer at feeder in a small pen is sporting, most people think it's terrible.

That was my first reaction to TFA. My variation was that he was using a bow.

No thank you, Delmar. One third of a gopher would only arouse my appetite without bedding it down.

Huh... rich people problems.

Still has enough money to go hunting.
 
2013-10-14 10:00:48 PM  

max_pooper: Better than beef?


I think that it is just as good as beef.  Elk too.  beef may have a slight edge, but not enough for me to worry.

Healthier?  Yep.

Cheaper?  Hell yes.  200 pounds in the freezer for about 200 bucks (includes license, tags, gas and 1 round for my ought six).

Do it right and take good care of your animal and meat (keep it as clean as possible and don't let commercial meat cutting places get within about 20 miles of it unless you know them personally) and it is pretty good stuff.

netcentric: Huh... rich people problems.


Actually, a fair number of the folks that I know that hunt do it to save money.  Have you checked beef prices lately?

I have love the game on the apple ii, I don't have a crap ton of salt, a ox drawn wagon, family of 7 (or was it 5 can't remember) and a wagon train full of the same. Also played it on a rom on a core 2 duo about 4 years ago watching that game flash by at 1.4 ghz instead of 33mhz was interesting hunting was serious spray and pray, and you'll notice on the game they were only carrying 100 back to the wagon and weren't 80.

Jacobin: You're not cooking it right


Or it was meat that was not taken care of during the butchering, ageing and cutting/wrapping process.

Of course, you can always get an animal that is not very good once in a while.

I know nothing about deer and deer hunting. With the diet difference, are they both wild deer? Or is one raised and killed like a cow? Or are there hunting grounds where they're fed like this but you still go in and kill them? Utterly ignorant here.

I've had vension when I was a teen. It was okay. I'd try it again.
