  • when I was a kid we raised chickens for eggs. We had one that would crow in the morning and lay an egg in the evening. We named it dad decided it was too freaky and butchered it mom fried it and no one ate...I laid my head on my plate and cried. Even my dad, who grew up wringing chickens necks for his family couldnt eat.....poor Freaky died for nothing....I dont eat meat anymore

  • I deer hunt with my DH. He usually guts it and does all the trimming and processing himself. I do grind the mean into burger and cook it.

  • Yes I do it ALL the time. We love to hunt, especially Deer, yes Bambi!! My hubby is such a wuss when it comes to dressing out a deer. He is so squeamish about it but marvels at how I can with no flinching. He even brags to his buddy's what a huntress I am. I was brought up to hunt and slaughter my own kill so it's normal behavior to me. If the world goes into anarchy I know we wont starve to death. I can live off the land and kill my own food.
