In my area, guns may not be fired within something like 250 or 500 ft of a house (or road). But a bow and arrow, maybe, dunno...I am not a hunter.

I understand you only need homeowner's permission. I'm not sure of the road rule. Here in Orange Cty I see lots of deer stands well within that distance when I travel the local roads. Come the season, the bright orange hunkered down in the stands is so obvious.

Must be more than 500' from a dwellingm unless you have that person's permission, or so I've heard.

Ian, I just wanted to touch on something you brought up. Managing a deer population goes beyond the "sport" of fair killing. Honestly I never really understood what that meant. If it were fair the hunters would be naked as jay birds and not armed. Anything more than that is not playing by fair means. I personally don't see anything wrong with shooting a deer from the window of your house if you are legally allowed to do so. The aim is to reduce the overall population back to a number that is compatible with the landscape.

I suppose the same management argument could be made for people too...hmmm.....

Nice work! Don't take it to a cutter to cut it up. Way too expensive for something that is not that hard to do yourself. I can show you how easily enough.

My mentor, bow-hunter extraordinaire and self-proclaimed red neck, Frank, who towers over me by a foot, showed me how to do it. Dressed it all by myself, dragged it out, skinned and butchered it. From his (button buck) last breath to my freezer: five hours.

The meat is unbelievable... truly.

I saw two bucks on MP land this morning, while I was out taking photos. Then I went back to the land (private) of my successful hunt and saw 14 does. 14 !! In three minutes... And no, I didn't count any of them twice. More venison is on the way... :-)

Bow season is the time to get your tags filled. Trust me, come opening day of regular season, they get scarce.

If anyone get's lucky, you can donate the deer hide to a company in Montgomery that will turn it into leather. Just dump the hide on their front steps either
- the same day of the kill
- salted (don't ask me how much - call them) as a preservative
- frozen (or salted and frozen)

They'll be very happy.

Permagena 845-649-5806
11 Factory Street
Montgomery

It's an awesome way to use one more part of the animal.

Good luck!
