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.
