I cut up a hind quarter and the back and neck of one deer tonight. One quarter left of this one, then the other two. Only after I'm done with these will I consider going out with the bow for another one or two. It depends upon how much meat we will have.
I'm trying to make buckskin, but I think I might not be using enough hydrated lime to remove the skin. I'll have to do more research and try different concentrations with the remaining pelts.
