November 15th

In our family growing up we celebrated Deer Season. Yes CELEBRATED it! Thanksgiving as you know comes right in the middle of it and is just a bother anyway. (As an adult I love thanksgiving but that's another post). I always went hunting with my dad saw a few deer, once in 20 years shot one when I was with him. He shot many every year just not when I was with him. I have a tender heart you know. My kids are also learning the joy of being in the woods and hunting our winter food. Shocking but food doesn't come in plastic from the store.The last two years I have taken time off to process our deer myself and put it in the freezer for winter. I really enjoy this and can't wait to show the kids the deer. The antlers, the hide, the meat. Nothing tastes as good as fresh venison tenderloin fried in a little butter after being rolled in flour, sprinkled with salt and pepper. We appreciate the whole animal and the meat it provides. This year during early youth hunt my daughter got her first deer. We are so proud of her. She has the skills to provide for her family in the future.
