Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004

Rocky shot a deer last weekend.  Adventure Boy saw some deer, but he chose not to shoot, because he did not think he had a very good shot, and didn't want to risk wounding the deer, so he just sat and watched them, waiting for the chance to take a shot.  It never came.  I think a lot of fourteen year olds would have found the temptation too great, and taken a pot-shot.  I am very proud of him for being responsible.

Besides, we still have venison in the freezer from his killing spree last year.  Lord knows, the kid has plenty of kills under his belt.  He's still averaging one deer for each season.  :-)

Rocky got a spike doe.

Those of you who know something about deer anatomy and physiology will recongnize a problem there.  That's right a "spike" refers to the antlers of a deer being small, single spikes.  This indicates a young buck.

Does do not have antlers.


That's right, Rocky shot an intersexed deer.  It's rare, but it happens, and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.  There's nothing "unnatural" about it.

I'm sure it will be delicious.  We are equal opportunity carnivores.  No discrimination here.

I have completely butchered the deer.  All that remains is to grind the hamburger meat (which is currently in the freezer), and donate the hide.

Wow, congrats on the succesful hunt. And props to AB for knowing when NOT to shoot. You get out there and you see a deer after hours or days of nothing but gosu squirells sending off false alarms and that adrenaline hits and its hard to keep a cool head. Know a lot of older more experienced hunters who lack that level of control. As for does vs bucks it's like I told this one pinhead the year I brought in my does "Dunno about you pal but I don't know too many recipes for antler fricase" meats meat .

In other news CHristmas is coming up and I've got a pretty hefty credit with the nice guys at Steve Jackson for all my events I run. Do me a favor and have your tribe look around at the link below and tell me what, if anything strikes you as shiny. Oh, you know my friend Robia? Total browncoat virgin when we met. Now when we have our weekends together she makes SURE I have my Firefly boxed set hehehe.
Ps dont bother with any "Bob you don't have to do that" gosu. You guys are family. I love your boys like my they were my own and it's seldom enough I get to spoil them. So let me be a proper adopted uncle and hook em up.

Anything off here. I've got plenty room even with wanting to send some stuff to the Sandbox for our guys out where it's pointy and loud.

How interesting... Does an intersexed deer require the use of a doe permit?

Well, the technical term is "antlerless" If you have an antlerless permit, you can shoot deer with antlers or without. If you do not have an antlerless permit, you are only allowed to shoot antlers.

Therefore, if it has antlers, you can shoot it with either permit. Period.

Of course, the deer are severly over-populated up there, so I don't even think you have to buy an antlerless permit. I think it's open season on any deer you can find. In fact, you can get as many as five deer with "management permits". We could legally have brought home 15 dee this year if I had chosen to hunt.

Uh huh. Like I want to be trying to process fifteen deer all before they spoil. One is fine, thanks.


Thanks. I'll have the guys take a look around. You are wonderful for thinking of us. Just off the top of my head, though, I'd have to point out that we don't have a single solitary Munchkin card in the house.

Seems to me that the Cat person is having a cbirthday on the 8th.

If you don't think it's inappropriate to hand off a present to someone else at her party... I could pick it up when I come there.

Ah, then things have changed. Getting a "doe permit" was by lottery when I was last hunting and not something that could be counted on. But that's also based on various districts, so perhaps the hunters in my backyard were too good of shots - except me who never hit anything...
