    My fiance’s parents and sister are going this weekend and have the last few weekends (and some weekdays). Harold says he’s over waiting all day in the woods getting cold just waiting for a deer that may or may not come.

    Casey just left to go. He’ll probably be back Tuesday sometime.

    Believe it or not, for all that I went to college in the south and know plenty of people who target shoot, I don’t think I’ve ever known anyone who hunts. Well, probably I did, but I guess if so, they weren’t super vocal about it. So if you’ll forgive my ignorant questions, I’ve always wondered how it all happens. Do the guys who hunt also butcher the meat or are there places you bring the deer to get them butchered? I could see dealing with a game bird in the driveway or whatever, but I can’t imagine how a deer gets taken care of at home without blood and guts going just everywhere and fresh meat ending out in places you don’t want it. Also, what happens to the intestines and stuff? Do they just go in the normal garbage or do you have to bring them somewhere?

    It’s really popular around here but neither DH or I are into it. We’re not from around here though. ;)

    You gut the deer in the woods. Then take it home and yes my husband and father in law butcher it themselves. I want not part of any of it though. Don’t even eat the meat.

    That’s good that you aren’t expected to be the butcher, but I’m impressed that your husband and FIL know how to break down a whole deer. I’d have no clue. ! I know that hunting is probably a better choice than buying meat from the supermarket. It is cheap, super fresh, and it gives you more respect for the animals you are eating. Besides, you know the animal had as good a life as it could, unlike animals that may have been farmed in horrible conditions. It’s hypocritical of me because I eat plenty of meat, but I’d just rather never see its face.
