That wonderful venison that we enjoy all year round is starting to tease a little. This year will be the last year that my granddaughter can enjoy the early youth season and she’s getting a little of the buck fever that we’ve all had. Here’s some photos of those starting to graze the pastures and clean up the falling apples in the orchards.
These are nice young deer and will be beauties if left to grow a few more years. With the size of the youngsters, the young does will work fine when it comes to filling the freezer and the canning jars. Sassy should hopefully have plenty of jerky to last her through the winter months too. That dog loves her venison jerky! We have two and a half months to wait until bow season comes in and in the meantime we’ll put out the trail cams and watch the fields and orchards. We even have a few surprises for the poachers this year!!
