  2. Homesteading and gardening
    My friend grows a large garden every year in the spring. She's tried to grow a fall garden but the deer always get it, though they've never bothered her spring garden in the past. this year is different with the Mississippi flooding. Deer are coming away from the river in herds and they ate...

    Just put the first deer of the season in the freezer. My youngest daughter finally got her buck on opening day of youth season last Saturday. :call:

    Got my name in a national publication grit magazine jan feb issue under deer problems, and I had them too.
  8. Preparedness and Survival
    I'm SO bummed! I finally found someone to teach me to can, and then the <grumble grumble> deer ate every last one of my gorgeous heirloom roma tomatoes -- the only successful item in my wretched garden, by the way. (I've never gardened before.) We had a nice tall fence, but part of it came...

    I was given 2 deer round steaks. They said to make sure I cut out all tendons and bones before cooking or it will be to gamy tasting. How do I cook these so they are yummy

    I just got back from a conference where I listened to a wildlife expert. He is an extension professor at our local university. I guess that qualifies him as an expert although DW is also one and sometimes I wonder about her. He said that only two methods are worthwhile, fencing and netting...

    That's what I will be this weekend. Anybody else? I think I am going to take advantage of the quiet house and get a few things done that I have been putting off for awhile. I may even do some baking for the holidays! :mdance:

    I have been eagerly awaiting to try some Asian pears and had some really nice ones on my new trees I had planted this year. I had fenced the trees off with heavy plastic fencing about shin to eye level high. Every day I would go in my back yard to examine them and check on their development...

    I was told it was really lean. I would like to make a meatloaf from it. Anything I should know about cooking with this type of meat? I have never cooked deer. All I can think about is BAMBI....oh my... I hope I don't gag touching it. My imagination can get the better of me...hahahaha

    This will not hurt the deer. The deer will shy away from the scent of other animals, so you trick them with the bloodmeal and hair clippings. Your barber is a good source for some hair sweepings. 1 yard old sheeting, cotton, or muslin 1/4 C. bloodmeal 1 C. hair clippings Cut the fabric into...

    Hubby accidently left the garden gate open and the deer destroyed the last of my cabbage that survived the recent freeze. They also snipped off the tops of my onion plants. I swear, I think these deer keep their own calendars. When hunting season opens, you won't see a one. I mean you have...

    My husband's best friend did not get a deer this year and they desperately want some venison and to have some venision pepperoni made. We are giving them most of the deer and will have about 4 or 5 packages of venison pepperoni made for us and a big summer sausage also. The rest will go to...

    I got a phone call from my son this morning that his Daddy had shot a deer! :yippee: Apparently Jeff and another guy from town both shot it but since Jeff shot it first, the other guy told him to keep it. I called my neighbor who went out with me to where the deer was so he could show my guys...

    I was coming home from work (at dusk of course) and he was in the road when I came around a curve. I stomped on the brake and tried miss it. She ran away from me, then turned and came back- all the while I'm fishtailing in the road. Thank goodness no one else was coming. She hit me in the...
