Season can't come soon enough

Post by DuckHunt » Sun Jul 14, 2019 1:14 pm

It appears that the wife and I have been a little too generous in sharing the venison from this past season. A few weeks back we finished off the last of the steaks. Today, I thawed out the last stick of summer sausage. Noooooooooo! :lol: How can this be?!?!?

I like to have my freezer empty before the end of August so I can defrost it annually before the season. It ensures that I don't have meat that lingers around for years and potentially goes to waste. It also gives me added incentive to hit the woods and fill it back up.

It's not all bad. I do still have about 10 pounds of ground venison that I will have to make due with over the next 8 weeks. Then there's at least another mess of squirrels along with the catfish that needs to disappear before I restock those in September as well.

This might be the earliest we've emptied out the good stuff. I guess that means I'll just have to make more summer sausage next season. Time to order casings and seasoning.

I was out in May after giving 2 friends who didn't get a deer about 70% of the deer I got.
I'm on a special diet now so no more sausage for me. My season starts 9-14- 1-31.
