thanks all!!

now the butchering...my son Nick gave me a mulie so I have 2 big deer to process
why are all the deer so fat this year?
my son has heard deer from all over US have been exceptionally fat
usually the bucks when in rut burn it all off but not this year...fat on mulie buck Nick gave me had about 1.3 inches on rump...usually the bucks are free of fat...same fat doe's...which is kinda normal here
