another one down. you cant eat horns!
i hunt for the freezer. we get one buck a year tho and save the horns sometimes.....but it takes 5 deer to keep us in red meat for the year and thats with eating chicken 3 nights a week. weve been out of venison since early december so im REALLY hunting for the freezer now.You may not be able to eat "horns" but you can keep them around as a remembrance long after the meat is gone.
this is a special property that managed by geologist and game wardens directly. it has its own tags and they survey and issue tags every year that must be filled. MLD is the term. i dont get all the tags, my father in law farms the property so we get to hunt it. they give him 2 does and a buck or 3 does, but we may get more if no one else fills the tags. they are particular about the buck harvest. they want to have a bunch of trophy bucks i guess.Nice! We aren’t allowed to get does here but the meat is so much nicer than bucks, I wish we were. What’s the limit for you down there?
where we hunt they have a dozen feeders going all year so the deer eat alot of corn (it also helps curb them from eating crops) so they all taste good. anything corn fed is usually pretty good eating. lolBesides collecting antlers which do have a lot of uses, I really do prefer buck meat to doe meat for the taste. The does need harvested to control the population in this rime of shrinking habitat.
Fawns are exceptionally good eating.
