Got all the feet ready to mount and since there is a lot of waiting time with blades I decided to make some jerky, done 6 lbs of ground venison, first time i have used the shooter but it seemed to work out great and pretty easy. :)

It turned out great Bob, I never thought I would like it, figured it would be like eating a meat stick, I like mine jerky a little chewy but after eating some of BigA's and GregB's I thought I would try it, it dries up nice and stick together very good. Much easier to do because it is so consistent and only took about 5 hours to cook and dry out like i like it.

Been really busy this week trying to get a few things done around the house and the farm, got the youth hunt coming up Saturday with 4 kids coming to hunt then next week My Fl. boys + Eddie and Dave are coming in for a few days to fellowship and hunt, busy time of year for me. Got through the storms yesterday with no major problems and finely headed to the woods this morning to see if i can get more meat for the freezer. Have got a few projects done around the shop and will have some pictures up in a few days. Hope all is going good for all my PA friends also. Life is Good. :) :)

Headed to the cabin for a few days, going to try and get in a little more hunting before the youth hunt and all my buddies show up. I get really busy when I have friends there and usually don't get to hunt much . I love it when I have friends to share the place with but also something to be said for peace and quite and some ME time. Had a good day yesterday and will have more pictures and stories when I get back home. Yall have a good one. Life is Good. :) :)

Congrats on the thunder chicken.  Its sure tough to get one with a bow. We've had a very dry fall in WNY.  Last year our property was under water.  It has been warm and the full moon has kept most deer travel to the late night hours.  This morning was 31 degrees and a thick frost.  Hoping to turn my luck around this weekend.  Our hunt club is hosting a Injured Soldier Weekend.  Vets stay at our place and hunt surrounding properties.  It is done in conjunction with a local church and their Christian Bowhunter Group.  I visited with Dave and Barb the other day.  We made plans for some summer adventures with the camper.  I hope all is well in the holler.  Say hello and best wishes to the gang.  Stay safe and good luck in the woods.

Pappy,
Congratulations on your turkey. You accomplished something that many have not. Getting a turkey with a primitive bow! Very Cool!
take care,
brian

Thanks guys, it was pretty cool. Had a great few days at the cabin, hunting/finishing up some projects and topped off with a great youth weekend hunt. Here are a few pictures. Started the week with another doe to process that someone didn't want, got to love that at lease for me  ;) :) :) :) and also got the 3 knives I was making for my cousin finished up.
