One of my wife's underlings is an avid hunter. There's a disconnect for most folk when they find out, the woman is 5'2, a hundred pounds, super cute and super girly. Totally threw me when I found out she loved to hunt, since most of the female hunters I know...are less than womanly and attractive. She's absofarkinglutely deadly with a bow, rifle, well...any weapon, actually. We've been out hunting a few times and this chick is beast. Perfect kills, every single time. Loves the hunt, loves the kill.

Poowaddins: Speaking as a female hunter who just got her second white-tailed doe of the archery season, I hunt because deer are tasty and because my working husband doesn't have time to hunt.

$24 license + $30 worth of vacuum pack bags = 84lb of lean meat in my freezer that keeps us fed for an entire year. It makes good financial sense when the price of everything in the grocery store keeps going up.

Venison stew meat, add in some green beans I canned, add in some tomatoes I canned, add in some potatoes, carrots, and onions I grew, add in some homemade broth, and you have a pot of soup or stew. Serve on the side with some hot sourdough bread I made, and that's some good eats. The economy got me back in the kitchen doing things the way my mother and grandmother taught me. I'm saving money and healthier for it.

I don't hunt for sport, just to feed my family. I don't get a thrill in killing, but I am grateful for what the animal has provided me.


Question for people who eat what they hunt - how can you be sure that the animal doesn't have a disease or dangerous parasites?

How do you know the food you but at the grocery story doesn't have disease or dangerous spoilage? That foam in your can of green beans, is it just foam from opening or bubbles from a botulism infection?

I wouldn't bother putting a scope on an AK, it's really not made for any kind of range. The SKS has a longer barrel and I think it's a much better shooter anyway. 125gr hollow points are available in 7.62x39 and the writers say it's very similar ballistically to the .30-30 round which is still the most used cartridge for game here in the US. Lever actions are still the #1 used rifle for deer.

Is there any trick to cooking it or ingredients you can pair it with to cut the....I don't know how to describe it, metallic deer taste? I like the idea of eating it in theory because like you said it's cheap and probably had a better life than being in a pen but I don't like that metallic flavor.

Deer need to be bled very quickly after death, and butchered not soon after. Bucks tend to be more 'metallic' than does. Although I am in no way an expert on the subject, I've found this works best.

Simply treat it like liver and soak it in milk for 30 min. before you cook it.

The flavor of the meat varies based on what they've been foraging when harvested.  Millet, clover, corn...all good.  Acorns and blueberries..not so much.  The gamey flavor also tends to be concentrated in connective tissue, so removing as much of that as possible helps.  I also find that a good marinade like soy/ginger will make it almost impossible to tell you are eating deer as opposed to really really good beef.

If venison has an off taste, it was almost certainly shot poorly, field-dressed poorly or butchered poorly. Contamination from the stomach or intestines is probably what you're tasting.

If your shot is forward of the diaphragm, if you do your cutting without puncturing anything you shouldn't, and if you get the meat cooled quickly, there will be no 'metallic', 'liver', 'sour' or 'gamey' taste.

And ignore the armchair nimrods who tell you to 'age' venison, or 'bleed' deer.

I thought I was pretty good with field dressing and butchering, but one year I went to a butcher who processes deer every fall and offered to work for a couple days in exchange for the education. It was really worthwhile (and he paid me anyway). I do a much better, more efficient job now, and I get a lot more meat off the neck and shoulders than I ever could before. I was appalled at the condition of some of the deer carcasses people brought to him for processing.

A trained eye can tell. Which is why most states require processing be done by a licensed vendor (who inspects the meat).

Even better when you teach them to do the gutting.  I was out with an uncle and some cousins, when one checked a small grove of woods, spooking out a doe and her bambi's.  We knew the three deer as they have been spending a lot of time around uncle's farm, so no one shot.  Sadly the three crossed the street, and a small car took out the first year buck.  The driver came down to uncle's house to use the phone, and while we chatted, the guy's wife was already field dressing the buck.  One cousin let out a "What a woman."  Sadly for the driver, they were on their way home from picking up the car from the body shop.  The car got two deer that year.

I know three lady hunters, an aunt who used to hunt with a M1, one in her 40's who hunts both bow and gun, and a mid 20-something tall hottie, I think may only hunt bow.  I'll have to ask if the young one shoots gun as well.  The aunt surprised me for two reasons, she is really lady like and my uncle was quite sexist, the other reason, the M1.  My sexist uncle gave her the M1, because it was the smaller gun in his collection.  I really want to see what he used, but since his passing, I think she has sold it off.  The young lady almost surprised me till I met her fiancé.  They go into the woods with matching camouflage and makeup.  It's so cute.

Real sport?   No weapons, mano-y-mano.  I don't care if you're going after squirrel or bear.  Level that playing field.  Hunt, grab, kill, just like the other animals do.

That's what i'm talkin' about!  I learned to shoot a bow when I was 12 years old and loved it! I'd love to go bowhunting, but my boobs are unfortunately huge now and would make things difficult. Plus I ran out of room a few years ago when we moved and had to sell my bow :(  But at least I can say I got into the sport *way* before Hunger Games was even written so people can't go accusing me of riding the "Hunger Games" wagon or whatever. Bowhunting was awesome before any of that nonsense!

When I was in Army boot camp ('83), female troopies did not receive any hand-to-hand combat training because it was assumed that "women will never be in combat and therefore will not need those skills." Instead, we spent twice as much time at the firing range as the male solders did -- and female units almost always won the shootin' awards. I definitely agree about the "no bad habits to unlearn." The majority of the women in my group had never fired a weapon, so they took direction well when learning how to use the M-16.

I'm surprised that there haven't been any jokes about hunting females... Of course, the gun threads do tend to bring out the gun/hunting types, who tend to be a) nicer and more civilized than the average Farker and b) less likely to joke about shooting people, so maybe I shouldn't be so surprised after all. Or maybe it's the gatherers rather than the hunters who go after the low-hanging fruit...

I mentioned earlier about the three ladies I knew that either have hunted or still hunt.  I saw the lady in her 40's and got to ask her whether or not she hunts the gun season as well.  Turns out she only hunts bow, because she uses her bathroom as a blind, literally.  She sits in her bathroom with the window open, and hunts from that spot.  When she gets one, she sends her husband out to get it.  I would laugh, but she has two already this season.  I didn't know about the bathroom blind till after I suggested shotgun, and that is when she said it would be too noisy in the house.

Back when I was dating my wife, she would go tanning and wear only a thong in the booth.  It left a pale triangle over her tush.  I teased her I was 'hunting white tail dear.'

/that's as far as I go
//not one for upsetting people that get emotional and hold guns at the same time.

If your wife enters the hunting licence pool, it doubles your chance of getting a licence. But then you have to take her hunting with you just in case you bag a moose or deer or whatever.

Where I come from (Province of New Brunswick) there is a small population of women who hunt and fish. They are not all tomboys or lesbians either. Some of them are otherwise quite girley girls. There is nothing which prevents a woman from being a good shot. Under the laws of King Edward III (IIRC), both girls and boys had to learn archery.

Women were not allowed in combat but they could man the pallisades and many have had to keep the fort with nothing but the old men and boys or even with nothing more than their daughters marching back and forth to fool the beseigers.

Other women just like to get out of the house, or keep an eye on the husbands. Quite a few don't really care for salmon-fishing or hunting but put their names in the lottery pool for their male relations.

It takes all kinds to put salmon and venison on the table. I don't care for hunting or fishing much but I don't mind the eating.

Having women involved can probably civilize hunting, fishing and other manly diversions to some extent.

Rule one: you kill it, you clean it. Fish and game alike. Before you get home, preferably. Makes it easier to carry, any way.

My uncle was hunting with his brother-in-law, who is quite obese. They sho a moose but the brother-in-law had a heart attack from the effort and excitement. Instead of two men packing moose meat out of the woods, my uncle had to carry his brother-in-law. AN OBESE MAN, CARRIED MORE THAN 12 MILES, POSSIBLY 14 MILES.

My uncle is a woodsman. A real pro. As a forester for a big compay, he was leaving trees to reseed cut land and leaving uncut zones along streams and trees with bird nests in them decades before the environmentalists and foreign certification boards demanded such practices.

You have to admit that a guy like that has some cred.

My uncle and aunt have worked out a quid pro quo where she goes along with his woodsman things like fishing trips to my grandfather's primitive camp in the Miramichi River basin and he goes to the condo she bought in town with her savings from work. Very sensible and healthy give-and-take for both of them.
