Got a doe last night, backed out and gathered her up this morning. Carrying the quarters + other meat the 2 miles back to my car made for some good exercise. Glad we had cool weather.

Thanks gents.

He was covered in 1/4" to 1/2" of fat. Seems the acorns and pecans were being kind to him. I have high hopes for the taste, but most of him will become chorizo at the wife's request.
