<quoted text>In Texas we hunt coyotes year round. I was deer hunting and I saw 2 does about 100 yards away. They saw a coyote 200 yards away and ran over right under me in a tree. They were very concerned about the coyote. Their hair stood up and they were giving the coyote the stink eye ; )
Wow! You didn't shoot the deer did ya?

Good Morning Denny and all your friends,
Just dropping by to wish you a Belated Happy and Healthy New Year.
While I am here, must tell you the latest. I don't know if you are
familiar with MFI...it was a company over here provided flat pack furniture, kitchens and so on, has finished trading now but amassed
a fortune for the son who has inherited it. He has a massive Estate
in Scotland, and guess what he intends to do with the fortune....
He intends to re-introduce wolves and bears into the UK!
He has made a start by bringing in bison. Imagine going hiking in
Scotland, being attacked by bears!
Wow! No way!

I won't eat deer. I know you would eat a Bambi though. ;-)

However, I have enjoyed mooseloaf and a bunch of other things at our Wild Game/Fish Feed potlucks. I used to work for a certain resource agency out here, one of several. The fresh grilled tuna was awesome.

I can't imagine why you would shoot a coyote, other than to protect fowl/domestic livestock/house pets.

Snowmobiling at night. That sounds like fun!

I don't think there is a lottery back there. There is a season, however. So many deer. I would sometimes be on my snowmobile at night and when out riding in the fields you'd see the headlights reflect back at you from their eyes ... tons of them.

A guy I work with used to be a chef. The past two years he brought in the best venison for our holiday potluck. I don't know what he does, but it is so tender and tastes better than a fine steak.

I like deer jerky too.

Moose I have not had. Tuna is about the only fish I will eat that I have not caught myself, fileted while still alive and cooked immediately right. I do not like any fishy taste. It has to be fresh fish or I don’t want it.

Crab, lobster, and shrimp I like, however. I was on a business trip overseas in Europe, and I ordered shrimp … they came with the shell, eyes, head, everything. I wasn’t expecting that. I was like wtf is this? My colleagues were laughing at me. It was funny.

I agree. It seems cruel and ignorant. I don’t think it’s right to kill an animal just for sport.

It’s a good time. It was always fun to go out on the trails with a bunch of buddies. I had a 700cc sled and it could do 90mph. Upon on the frozen lakes in Northern WI and Minnesota you can just open it up. The trials go out on the lakes and they have the areas of thin ice from springs marked off.

I’d like to get back up there one of these days in the winter for a trip.

Hehe

Yes, it can be if cooked correctly, but how can you EAT a deer. I mean they're so sweet and nonconfrontational, even before you bump them off the road. It was fun watching babies wander the hallways crying, BEEE, BEEE. At that agency I mentioned, sort of. And when you are bottle feeding them, they suck on your fingers if you aren't fast enough to get the nipple in their mouth. I like wildlife photography and have some pics I want to bring up out of the darkness.

I agree about the fresh fish, not fishy. I don't eat shellfish, bleh. I like fresh trout or a good German brown, fresh caught, on a stick, not scaled even, but gutted over an open fire. When the eyes turn white, it's done.

it sounds like fun.

One of these days I'm going to be able to figure out the quote thing you're doing. Is there a Quoting in Forums for Dummies book?

LOL on the unfishscaped shrimp. Haha.

Cows aren’t really any different and I like eating them, lol. They are nice (bulls are a different story … they are mean and dangerous). On a dairy farm, when the calves are born, you’d bottle feed them and the boy babies would get picked up once a week or so and taken to the slaughter house, because they can’t produce milk and there is no use for them. Just the way it goes.

I don’t particularly like killing anything, tho. I don’t even like killing fish. I just block it out and do it because someone has to.

I’ve never tried it that way. The way I do it, I don’t have to touch the guts. A vertical slit behind each gills. Cut the backstrap (the meat along the top of the spine) off, then fillet the sides and leave all the bones on. You leave a little bit more meat on the way I do it, but you don’t have to deal with cutting out any bones from the meat or deal with guts.

Actually, you just copy the things in brackets and paste them in. Take the brackets with the who= in it and put it at the front of whatever you want in quotes. Then take the brackets with the /quote in it and put it at the back.

Then the next day or two nights later I ordered river lobster and it was the same way. It was a country that ate a lot of seafood and my options were limited.

No it wasn't legal then. Coyotes and hogs kill game and should be shot when seen. They can kill a calf or sheep too

You eat a deer one bite at a time. The meat is delicious and very lean and good for you. Deep populations need to be controlled. Seasons and limits are set. We have more deer in Texas than any state. Left unhunted they will over populate and starve

Good morning Flower. What can I get you from the bar? Put a nickle in the juke box and play something good. Cold this morning but not as bad as yesterday. I need to find a place to hunt hogs. I love hunting and hope my age will let me continue for many more years

Yes, they do need to be controlled when the choice is overpopulation.

It wasn't me working with them but the people who worked with them. I had some great times there. Still trying to reconnect with some good pictures.

I saw a cow slaughtered in my teens. Won't stop me from eating beef though. I can say that I think that's why I was a vegetarian in my teens and most of my 20s. LOL.

Yes, indeed, but when a fish happens by and you're diving in rocks in a downstream river, you do what you do with what you have. I'll remember that though.

Smarty pants! that's too hard to do on the phone. Years to master. lol

I wouldn't want my food staring back at me either. lol The presentation of the meal is an art form and definitely lends to dining experience, IMO.

We've been cold down here (not as cold as up there). It was down to 6 or 7 degrees this morning. Kids actually started school 2 hours late this morning.

I don't mind meeting folks and I don't mind speaking during a presentation. Unless I'm going to a cool city, I don't like to travel very much. Fortunately, I don't have to do it much. So, I shouldn't complain too much.

I remember thinking how much fun my dad must of had when he would travel to Japan and Taiwan for business when I was a pup. I didn't understand why he didn't care for it at the time. He would bring us back the coolest little gadgets from Japan. I remember getting a radio pen that you could plug your headphones into. This was in the mid 80s.

I have so much drama going on in my family ... I get a phone call from my bro this morning ... dummy co-signed for student loans for his long time gf (they had been dating for probably 15 years and cohabiting). He said he co-signed for one, but she forged his name for another. Has 40k on his credit report and wants help. <shakes head>

I have an estate fraud that I'm helping my dad with. His father passed last fall and his loser so called super Jesusy brother who was the executor stole all the money.

I have another lawsuit going on involving my folks that the lawyers totally effed up. I was as quiet as a mouse at first, didn't say a word and just listening to their weasel word spiel about the case and them not taking any responsibility for it. Then, I dropped the hammer and just went off on them like a howitzer and told them if they lose the effing case, I am going after their firm for malpractice (and they know they committed malpractice ... said if they lose they will appeal at no cost to us).

There's more too.

My boss said they should make a movie or a tv show about my family.
