    Well I ground up another 36 lbs of deer this morning. In the freezer and about out of space. I would like one more just for summer sausage. Been a good year. Y'all about done?

    Hopefully, we should start picking up some new bucks and any old regulars should start getting a little more regular as they slow down chasing and start looking for some easy green patch to feed in. We kill most of our better bucks in Dec. i could stand another one for the freezer.

    I cut one up last night, that makes two deer and two hogs. My freezer is full, I’ve got to get a upright freezer.

    I got a chest for Vegs and a upright for meat. Both are stuffed. But I'm out here this afternoon. [​IMG]

    My freezer is empty still haven’t killed a deer this year. I’ve never hunted this late in the season without killing a couple. I’ve been to patient this year and missed the buck I wanted

    I done killed 3 and my freezer isn't even half full. Of course my wife has taken advantage of saving money on beef. We have eatin more than one deer already though. Still got about 60lbs in the freezer.
    Glad I went and bought a new chest freezer earlier this year! They were on sale Memorial Day

    I've put 4 up and a hog. I buy up pork loins when they go below $1.60. Fish and a few squirrel. I do summer sausage and Budain once a year and freeze those. Make my own sausage 45 lbs at a time. It fills up quick this time a year.

    I haven't got a chance to start filling with fish. Mine just has deer meat and butter braids from kids fund raisers.
    Would be nice to go ahead and buck out this month. Then I can start targeting big winter blues and flatheads. I can't catch crappie to save my life this time of year.

    When I was a kid, Taylor Old River was about the only place we went fishing. I still remember sliding our boat up and down that old dirt "ramp". We caught many a crappie out of there. We used to catch some out of that bar pit between it and the levee too.
