Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Deer Harvest Chart


Harvest Chart by artist ~ Nadia van der Donk
The purpose is to tell what parts of an hunted animal is used or consumed, but also which kind of meat comes from which part of the body (in general.)

A single deer can provide a lot of meat that can last for months if cut properly.  The hide can also be used for a wall hanging or carpet.  Butchering at home requires a lot more than a deer meat guide.  You'll need the right knives for skinning the hide, a hacksaw, wet stone and gloves for cleanliness.  Plus, the process can get a little dirty, so having a safe place to do it without risking a seriously messed up kitchen is key.  If you don't know what you're doing, you'll be much better off taking it to a deer processing facility or an experienced butcher.  If you're up for the challenge this handy guide will certainly help out. GOODHUNTING in our great wild outdoors!
