Do people try and bum meat off of you? #7017218

I don't understand.

Do people ever ask you for wild meat?

People know I kill stuff and are always asking if they could have just a couple of steaks, or "when are you going to bring some of that (deer, bear, moose, fish) etc over. Or, "perhaps you could drop off a pack of smelt one day?"

If I want to give someone meat, I will do so. I don't see you go to the grocery store and make a point to stop by and ask you for a T-bone, or Sirloin, do I? If you are not someone who I would normally get together with and have burgers on a Sunday afternoon, stop asking me for my food! Its food, not a novelty!

I get my meat from the bush, not the store. Only difference. If you want meat not from a store, buy a tag and get it yourself.

You don't think about what you eat much when you buy it from the store. When you hunt it, its different. I know every part. From practicing with the bow, to setting up the hunt, bait sites, trail cams, hanging stands, to shooting, dressing, dragging it out, hanging it, and finally butchering, grinding and wrapping it and putting it in the freezer.

Come to think of it, maybe I will start asking people for T-bones! Wouldn't that make sense? After all, all they did is walk into a store and spend $16.99 plus HST on it, already cleaned and frozen, then drop it on a grill.

Makes perfect sense! That meat didn't cost them hours of unproductive sitting if the cold, checking trail cams, buying all the gear and all the other work that went into it, the blood sweat and tears. That should mean that they would be happy to give me some nice, cheap store bought meat. They can also just go buy other meat anytime they want!

Their excuse for asking is always because they never get a chance to eat wild meat. My reason for asking for a T-bone is exactly the same! I never get to eat store bought steak, and it is a bit of a novelty for me also!



Tomorrow I am starting phase 1 of operation "Ask for T-bones". I figure I should be able to fill my freezer whenever I want, just by asking the neighbors when I see them carrying grocery bags up to their house!



And no one will give me grief for it! After all, they only spent $16.99 plus HST on their meat! What a bargain!

It's like taking orders, but not getting paid. Even better! Nothing like giving away jerky! Especially when you can fit an entire deers worth of jerky into an ice cream pail.

Sure friend...no problem. Why don't you take 10 pounds or so of jerky. No big deal that that darn near be an entire deer!!





I am gonna start telling people I only eat beaver. No idea why, but no one ever asks for beaver...

The one I hear the most is jerky. For some reason everyone and their brother asks for jerky every time me going hunting comes up in conversation

Hold on Buster.


In that case, based on my sweat equity calculations for wild meat, their store bought steaks are darn near free!

If you have good jerky you need a vegan guard and a safe to protect jerky . If only we could sell wild game meat.

I used to lead a lot of canoe trips, and people never drank enough. Dehydration sucks.

So before each trip I would make up a big batch of the spiciest jerky I could muster. Like, really spicy.

Everyone would want jerky, then they'd spend the next hour chugging water. lol


mission accomplished. jerky being akin to crack cocaine would ensure I always had well hydrated campers.

Ha, we were just discussing this yesterday. I give deer away every year. A co-worker who is outdoor clueless asked me for a deer a few years ago. I told him absolutely I'd get him one because many times I don't fill tags if I don't need the meat. Now, where I come from, if someone is giving you a deer you can expect a "deer" to be dropped off at your house. Gutted and tagged, that's it. At the very most, skinned and quartered. Well my buddy is all excited about me getting him a deer and says, "matter of fact, just go ahead and grind the entire thing into burger and I'll take it like that...Ö" Thought he was joking, but he wasn't. Yeah..... I'll get right on that!

Most people around here either shoot their own deer, or they canít believe I eat it. If they are asked to dinner, they usually want to know if itís beef or deer. I tell most deer, so I donít have to share. I NEVER tell people we made jerky.


I trap for fun. I skin 'em for the money!

All the time. Just because I hunt, fish and garden they think we are overloaded with "free" food.

Thats funny.

See, up here, we don't have many multiple tags. I am happy to have drawn a doe tag (which is good for doe or buck). Bucks are always legal, but only one per person generally unless you want to trvel all voer to other areas where they might offer another tag.

If there were an abundance of deer and I got five a year, no problem.

And good luck getting a moose tag. One only for the average person a year for bear also.

Fish is the worst. People asume I have freezers full fo fish laying around.

"Come over and lets have a fish fry!"

Translation: "why don't you bring all your fish, and probably the oil too, and we can eat all your fish! Oh and, maybe bring your deep fryer too!"
