Interesting article Mad Cook. And amusing also. I dare say it may be a bit formal for the American hunter.
Nice looking venison S&P.
We don't have Mule Deer but we've got Whitetails a plenty.
I don't hunt as much as I have in the past and never really wanted to hunt Bambi. Why? Too much work involved processing the harvest. I let others hunt my property and they share as much as I want with me.
I've hunted waterfowl but as I get older getting out in the cold to bag them becomes less desirable.
Now the one thing I'm interested in is a Turkey. That is one smart bird. (Not the domestic ones) Those buggers have outsmarted me for years now. I see them all the time except when it's hunting season and I'm hunting them. And if I have they have shown me that I'm one step behind them.
Cat, I can see your view. But deer can cause a lot of damage to crops and when the population gets out of hand hunting is the best way to handle the situation. People get good food to eat and deer don't suffer from starvation.
I'd also like to recommend that folks read the real Bambi by Felix Salten published in 1929. It's a good read and not the Disney version.
