Tell her congrats Dave,I know how she loves to fill the freezer.  ;) Yes BJ, very true, don't always hit right where you are looking, but a little high is generally a better outcome than a little low. ;) :) :) By the way got my brain blaster from Clint yesterday, can't wait to give it a try, many thanks Clint, much appreciated.  :) :)

Had a great weekend, got a few things done in the shop and had a great day with the family. Decided to mount Beau's elk feet into a gun/bow rack, I decided to do a chemical tan on them, never done that before but pretty easy, my nephew is a taxidermist and told me how to do it and also gave me the chemical, all I had to get was the salt for the mix and baking soda after to neutralize it. Also he gave me 8 lbs of bear fat so I rendered it down and got 3 1/2 quarts. Cooked it on the fire for several hours.Smells like beacon grease.   :) ;)

While the fat was cooking down just spent a good evening into the knight by the fire, Joe showed up also and stayed a couple of day.I hunted the mornings and seen a few deer but no shots, the evening as usual I got side tracked doing other things. :)

I had another deer given to me so I had that to deal with which is a good thing. :) Then I started getting set up for the reunion, the family mostly city folks now always want to see what I have been up to. Although they don't do the stuff i do they do love to look. ??? :) :)

Had about 70 folks there and was really good to see them, usually on see the once a year and some only every few year because of how far they live.

Another great weekend, still no more deer but some close encounters, maybe this week  ??? I did get a lot done around the shop so that's always a good thing. Got the elk and deer feet tanned and drying,next will be filling the leg bone and mounting on a board, also I had a cousin at the reunion talk me into making 3 knives, 2 for her daughters and 1 for her husband, not sure how she talked me into that but I am pretty easy sometimes  :) :) she also wanted them to be made with deer sheds she had found on their farm. It took some figuring to get it done but I think they are turning out pretty good. Hope she will like what I came up with. :)
