    Did our part to maintain a healthy deer herd last night. Myself and 2 buddies killed 5 does and one small buck yesterday evening. The other guys decided the buck was a cull, I probably would've given him the benefit of the doubt. I took the 2 does that I shot to a local family and helped them process them. We were at it until nearly 11pm last night. They were pretty pumped, they wound up with a whole bunch of meat. I already have a full freezer, but the farm I was hunting needs a number of does taken to help balance out the herd more. We still plan on taking several more does this year, if presented the opportunity during the special holliday season. Hopefully lady luck will smile upon us once again.:wink:

    nice! It's always good to do something you like and to help people out at the same time.

    I love the doe thinning detail! Congratulations. Outstanding that you found a home for the meat.

    Good job! Do ya'll have "Hunters for the Hungry" or "Hush" or any programs like that? I usually give 3-4 a year to Hunters for the Hungry, an organization a neighbor of mine started.

    Willie, I hunt and fish so much that I never have any problem finding willing souls to take deer, hogs, or fish. I have lots of friends who want meat and on the rare occasion that they don't, my guys at the farm want it. Turkeys, hogs, deer, fish..... I generally have a waiting list for people that need the meat. Several of the families that get the meat don't just want it, they really NEED it. My son gave his first deer to a family that worked for us that really needed the meat. It was a neat experience, and he quickly learned how much help a 120 lb deer could be to a hungry family. It was a pretty cool lesson for the boy to learn.
