Retired2Hunt, You got some antler in that pic. Here's a deer I've been seeing all year with a bum leg but still carried a fawn without problems

That is pretty amazing she
That is pretty amazing she has done so well with that leg. A lot of my august pics of does have the same skinny rib cage look to them - must be from nursing the fawns for the past several months. But my september pics the does are looking far more healthy and showing less ribs and a better gain of weight. Good luck on your hunts this year - I look forward to your stories of success and the pics to prove it!

Good big game practice!
Small game hunting is perfect for practice in preparation for the big game hunts. I want to do some squirrel hunting here in Ohio within the next week or two. How do you bake/fry your squirrels?

I usually boil a few of them at a time at a low temp for several hours until the meat falls right off and then I mix it with gravy and usually put on my dogs hard food but I sometimes put it over bow tie noodles or mashed potatoes for myself. It taste just like chicken but I'm just not that into it. My wife loves the hearts and liver and is terribly disappointed when I don't make a head shot. Little does she know a head shot usually means that I missed and got lucky! I

Funny on the head shot
Funny on the head shot comment! I never had squirrel hearts or livers - I will need to try that.
Here is how Dad taught me for cooking squirrel - and this will make you "into" squirrel meat...
Dip the squirrel meat into a bowl of Aunt Jemima or Hungry Jack original pancake mix - then dip in egg and then re-dip in pancake mix.
Pan fry in oil till brown on all sides
Put all meat in a oven safe baking dish - glass or porcelain pan
Cover all meat with 1 can of cream of chicken soup plus 1 can of cream of mushroom soup (right out of can - no water)
Cover baking dish with foil
Bake at 350 degrees for 90 minutes
Take out and let stand at least 10 - 15 minutes and then dig in and enjoy!
I do my snapping turtle meat the same but cook for 2 hours in the oven. Cottontail rabbit is the same but only need an hour in the oven. Jack Rabbit the same but put in the crockpot for at least 6 hours on high setting.
