    I’d love to shoot one some day

  • Joel's avatar

    @Casey he was only 5-6 yards away so it wasn’t hard to put one through his forehead!

    What kind of dishes do you like to make with them?

  • Joel's avatar

    @Jordan I generally will opt toward a pot roast recipe in a crock pot. Anything with low temp over a long period of time though will work.

    Glad your filling your freezer with em. They don’t have a great culinary reputation.

  • Steve's avatar

    @Jordan they make great jerky and grill up very nicely too the trick is soaking them to draw out the blood and not overcooking them

    6 yard shot is crazy

  • Joel's avatar

    @Brady it was pretty sketchy. I was trying to let him pass by me without alerting he and the others that I was there but he got a little to ornery.
