Hello from Germany! Here another harvest report. My friend Det from Swisttal near Bonn, western part of Germany was able to harvest a nice 40 pds fallow calf with his Shenandoah rilfe, cal. 45 percussion.
Here is a pic of the harvest:
we butcher it in most cases ourselves. It belongs to whom it is sold. Selling venision is legal in Germany. If a restaurant will get it, we are not allowed to butcher. They have to get only it field dressed. When we sell to private people we have to butcher it.
Butchering is kind of the german hunter education (takes one year).
For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it. This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.
First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some...
