I used to give away stuff but most folks are just simply unappreciative so I keep it or limit it to immediate family.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

I think I’ve only ever been asked for meat once and that was antelope because they’d never tried it.

From the range of handling skills I've witnessed over the years, unless I know the hunter or handler well I'm not interested in game meat from others. Just ask a game butcher.

You can hide a lot of sins in a summer sausage and sausage sticks.

Understood. I knew a fella that went through Basic Training at least 3 times just over a flinch with the trigger on a little 5.56.

Most people don't ask anymore. I enjoy sharing the fruits of my labor with others but it has to be my idea and on my terms.


I agree and have this same mentality. I share first with those that need it and those who have shared with me or taken me out to show me how. I figure we all have the same amount of time each day to do whatever we decide and if you choose to spend yours working more or whatever don't think that my meat or produce is free because that is what I decided to spend my time on. If you are able bodied get out there and enjoy the harvest or be willing to go without.

How often do you give even when it may be to your own detriment? I rarely do, but want to be better about that if someone really has a need. I have been blessed! May I bless others!

Now that we've started raising meat birds there sure seems to be a lot of hints around the family that we should be handing it out like candy at Halloween.

One year I tilled up a 40x80 patch of pasture that was wild and started a garden. The entire thing was squash. If you are at all familiar with canary grass and the joys of the first year of fighting it, you know how that first year went. At the end of the year I had 8 squash. First frost I had people coming to me telling me that they were there for their squash. When asked what the4y were talking about, they told me that my mom told them I would give them a couple dozen squash. Multiple people. I told them that I didn't have any and they insisted that I was supposed to give them squash. After I went full Samuel L. Jackson on them they figure3d out that they were not going to get any.

Then I had a discussion with my mother. Then the old man had a discussion with my mother.
