Just stumbled across this 2022 thread and IMHO, you ought to do just that.  It may prove not only be an inflation hedge, but a just being able to get them at all hedge.  How dry is your basement?


Well, It’s flooded twice in 3 years.  Once on the way home from the 2019 Big Show, and again this year in May.  :sad-pacing:

A lot of the meat was beat up pretty bad.  Front shoulders had damage, rear hips/tailbone area were destroyed.  I harvested two real good pans of meat though!  Most of the backstraps were salvaged!

 

Thanks to Chloe the 953 for such a stout hood :handgestures-salute:

 

*edit* Sealed and weighed, we accumulated 29.6 lbs.  at meat market prices, we made a good haul!

I believe that I’ll continue to hang ‘em upside down from now on…

For several years I'd plunk the (incredibly entitled and presumptuous) deer in our yard with pebbles using a strong slingshot. Got good enough to hit wherever I wanted out to about 30-40 feet.

What I learned is that deer are not too bright.

Hit one in the side and they just look up and give you a "Huh? Whazzzat?" look.

Hit 'em in the head (and get a solid, hollow-sounding "thunk") and they jump about 5 feet and THEN give you the same look.

I gave up and after they ate all the deer candy I planted stuff they don't eat.

A few weeks back Mrs. P and I volunteered for the local United Way.  We did a clean up in town and her and I were appointed to yank plants and bushes that had overgrown.  There were tons of hostas.  I thought about planting them around my deer stands for food plots!
