Matthew's first deer

On Friday Matthew got his first deer. It was a yearling doe. The head is tipped back because that's where he shot it.

It took three shots for him-two misses. But the third was a head shot and a quick kill.

Even more, it means that none of the meat was spoiled.

He got a bit lucky, the third shot was from 100 yards or better. ( he used Darrow's 30-30, a Winchester, model 94)

We made some sausage Saturday evening from Matthew's harvest. It was very good.

Now we have some more meat in the freezer for this winter and spring.
