Have you been shooten your bow? Tunnin them muscle up? Sighting that new gun in? Thinking about where ya gonna hunt this year? What tactics ya gonna use? How you gonna store that abundant meat? etc. etc. This last Saturday my 10 year old daughter took her 10 hour safety coarse and received her Hunter Safety Card. So now I got a new deer hunting partner this year. She has been begging me to take her deer hunting for about the last 2 to 3 years. I've been taking her squirrel hunting and she really loves to hunt them little tree monkies. I'm looking forward to puttin a couple of deer in my freezer so I can have some good eaten. I'm really looking forward to canning some more deer sausage in the new way that I have found. It's an old time method but it works really good. Fry some homemade deer sausage up into patties, making sure it is cooked all the way through. Take these patties and place them in a clean wide mouth pint jar, stacking the patties on top of each other. Next melt some lard and pour the hot lard over the sausage patties all the way up to the top of the jar. Make sure their are no air bubbles. Place new lid and ring on and let cool. When cool enough it will create a vacuum and pop the lid. Letting you know that the jar has sealed. This will keep for a long time. Anytime you need one or two patties, just remove and cover remaining patties back up with hot lard. This is the way the old timey's use to do it. I tried it last year and kept one jar in the pantry all the way up till July this year before I opened it and ate it. To my surpize it was still delicious. The kids and I ate it up and we had no problems. So I am really looking forward to doing a whole bunch this time. I hope my daughter is a good shot!
