    This pic is from Crookedeye's most memorable hunting trip, except for the one where the angry doe tried to mount him: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Taxidermy done right <a href="https://t.co/ORpElwd8VR">pic.twitter.com/ORpElwd8VR</a></p>&mdash; Matt Dawson (@SaintRPh) <a href="https://twitter.com/SaintRPh/status/954698619885670400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 20, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> This one evokes hunting in California.

    I once killed a squirrel with a .22 and couldn't figure out where I'd hit him. I think I might have just scared him to death. It was right after my mom died, so I took it as some kind of sign and had it mounted. Kind of a little guy. One of the cats chewed his ear pretty good before I put him in a safer spot.

    I told the story on here a long time ago about being followed on an old jeep road by something in a WWI trenchcoat one time. It was a foggy morning in mid-November. The figure disappeared as I tried to signal to it. Faded into the edge of the woods. I still don't know what happened ... This was before blaze orange, and I didn't get a deer that day, either, as I recall.

    You know the one thing I don't associate with Nebraska? Ghost stories. Maybe in the western part of the state, though, with the spirits of old cowboys, cavalrymen and Indians ... Probably some spooky pioneer women, too. Okay, so maybe it's not ghosts, but it's strange creatures that don't come from Nebraska ... Wait ...

    I'm still following along on the other thread. I'm headed over there right now. What's with the .03 on the curing salt? I know you have to be careful with it, but .03? Maybe I have to consult Google for some education. Espresso bacon, huh? Not sure how I feel about that ... LOL

    That is weird. The difference between direct heat and indirect heat, for some reason? What are those gray-black-silverish things on the rack with the liver chunks?

    Deer get a lot of their water from plants. Years ago, I read how much, but don't remember now. But it was a major percentage-- Significantly more than 50%, as I recall. Around here they have some green to eat in winter.Some kinds of honeysuckle, though it's hard to tell if they don't eat the evergreen kind all the way down or we have mostly the non-evergreen. I'm pretty sure I've run into both kinds late winter. Jessamine. Greenbrier (smilax). Holly. Cedar. Rhododendron. Woody browse.

    It makes you think about animals that have to scratch around on the ground for food, using all their fat reserves up while heavy snow's on the ground. For instance, I can't imagine what turkeys are eating around here right now. The ground won't be accessible for another few days, unfrozen water's scarce, etc.

    If you use Jif or Skippy you can get away with deer or possum fat ... But if you go generic on the PB, you have to use prime fat to make up for it, or the birds won't eat it.

    That's pretty good. I haven't watched SNL in ages. I don't watch Morning Joe except once in a blue moon, but it seemed like they nailed it. Joe and Mika ARE a little cringe-inducing.

    LOL ... They say the fat is one of the main things that will turn venison rank for humans. I never would have thought about using it for bird feed. But I guess suet is suet. :tu:
