One more bird.

AC,

is that an Eastern wild turkey.. do you have the Ocealla ( sp ) variety near you.....my oldest brother was previously state chapter president for NWTF and they literally re introduced wild turkeys back into MD as there were none in MD as late as the 1980's and we now have a very good and viable hunting population state wide .... he won national volunteer of the year by NTWF a few years ago for all of his volunteer time.. he spent so much time vounteering for NWTF that he hardly got to hunt... :laugh:  my other brother gets a nice gobbler every year eiother in MD or Northern Neck of VA... I have never gone trukey hunting  but I would like to go with one of my brothers one day and bag a gobbler......  looks very challenging... I have had wild turkey and talk about lean.. it is super lean compared to farm raised turkey so it is LEAN.... usually put some bacon strips on the brd to keep it moist.. and cook it breast dwon.. or the good ole deep fried too.... ;D

remove tenderloins asap. if deer was not killed right away or struggled in dieing then hang with hide on temps no higher than 48 degree for 1 to 4 weeks then butcher. beef and venison age differently like said earlyier in beef the fat marbled in breaks down make a good taste and tender in a deer with hide on it don't dry the meat so much as it drys the blood content somwhat. any deer killed with a gun or bow don't have to be bled, cutting the throat, the bullet or arrow does this. i butchered deer pro for 2 different butchers for 10 years,only do my own now and i still take too long,guess i'm too picky.

Crabdog, it's an Osceola, Easterns are N of me. By all means go turkey hunting in the spring. all I can say is WHAT A RUSH!! I live for spring turkey.. I cut the breast in strips and salt,pepper,flour,and fry. Thighs, my wife makes soup, Drumsticks are tough and sinewy, I usually boil them down for my dog. 8)

I like to hang them too. A lot of my deer are shot in front of dogs. usually give the dog owner 1/2 of the meat if they want it, or we make sure that if someone in our group hasn't got a deer yet we give them some of it. Often deer are quarted and divided up within a couple of hours after being shot. What I kill during bow or M/L or off my stands is mine, but dog hunting is a group thing and we make sure every one has meat even if they don't get a shot. ;)

AC - went preserve quail hunting yesterday. Guides' english pointer (Male) was a little head strong (didn't want to back real well, would keep moving in until he got in front of the setter already on point) but he was a great retriever. Only thing is - he would grab every bird by the head, pull it off and eat it before he brought the bird back. That dog ate over 70 quail heads yesterday morning just with our group! Guide said he does it with every bird he retrieves. I can't believe it doesn't make him sick or kill him, but he keeps on doing it.

How many quail did you have them set and a rough cost would be great if you don't mind me asking.  I think I used those guys about 6 years ago according to the map.  We did quail, chukkers and a few phesants..
Now the search begins...

Is that the place on Grange Hall Rd just north of the Osprey mini mart / gas station...above Dickey's Auto Haus VW repair...?

BTW, my buddy's CBR, does the same on ducks.. mainly teal or woodies.. she will nip the heads off of the small ducks in seconds if you turn your back.. and I thought for sure it would block her up or cause issues passing them.. but doesn't bother her at all.. crazy....and you can't stop her form doing it.. she usually gets em after the retrieve and once you lay em n theboat she wil go snap em up..  :P :-X :-\

Mine is headstrong too. She doesn't eat the heads but she does have a hard mouth. Been working her with frozen quail with toothpicks inserted in them. If that doesn't work I guess it's force fetch time(I really don't want to do that.)
