Default The official "asking for meat thread"

That title just sounds wrong.
But, I thought I would put it out there.
There are a lot of us on TBH that don't enjoy the hunting opportunities that others do.
Financial reasons, whatever. Hunting is tough in Texas if you have no connections or the money for a lease.
I will get to hunt this year but maybe only five days of the season and I trade labor for those hunts. And of course nothing is in the bag.
I am not asking for hand outs but I thought it would be cool to set up a network amongst hunters to share the wealth.
I love to cook. I love wild game. My kids love the meat.
Nothing's free in this world.
Post up if you are one in the same position as me.
Once again. Not asking for handouts. If I can repay I will. Jack of all trades.
Cheers and happy hunting.

Some years I have too much meat to use and other years, not enough.

I would gladly give or take as is necessary.

I like the premise.


For those of you guys that have meat about to be "freezer burned", it might be a cool gesture to post that fact and see if someone around you needs it.


I'm out so I can't wait for the season to start so I can re-stock

I'll save you one this year early so the pressure will be off -

I usually grind the first couple we shoot, but I can bring it to you however you want it (whole, quartered, deboned....whatever)

Do you have idea/cost for shipping meat???

I have quite a bit of meat but do not want to spend a lot of money on getting it to you or anyone else really.

I'm sure that will be a big part of this whole deal...getting the meat to the person in need.

I was telling my wife that we needed to start giving some meat away. The season is once more upon us and need to make room in the freezer. So if you or any one else near or in Corpus I got some from last year to give.

If we could get a TBH Express, I have PLENTY of packaged elk sausage I would gladly give to you. Believe me when I say I have plenty. Started with over 400#'s and it is dang good.

Anyone let me know if you are headed to the Austin area in the near future and can do this TBH Express!

I would be interested in the possiblity of getting something for the freezer. I am excited about this year but have not had much luck on public land and that is all I hunt. Filled three tags in more years than I really like to admit. It will not go to waste.

Thank you,

Kevin

Four Ten on keeping it local...I usually try to see if anyone needs any or knows of anyone in need of meat on any hunts I go on. I think I gave away two pigs last time at the Diamond C...one of our group knew of a family with some growing boys and any meat would certainly help feed them boys!!!!

To the OP, I am in San Antonio and will gladly give you some deer meat. I usually have 1 or 2 deer a season that I am trying to give away. I frequently make it to New Braunfels so maybe we can meet there or San Marcos.

I was fortunate enough to get some ground venison from a member last year, and made a bunch of snack sticks with it. Nannyslayer had a friend in the service, so i sent a bunch to him overseas.

Just an option for those of you fortunate enough to have an over abundance of meat. The soldier's love that stuff.

Maybe snipehunter can serve as point man on a supply mission.

I'm out of venison for now but I have no issues getting more. My problem is that I have to lay one down and then get it processed which might take until late Oct' early Nov' Ground beef is still available

If you wanna give up some stew meat, my wife makes a kick arse stew that I'd be happy to share-back.

This is probably one of the coolest threads I've seen on the site. I don't know that I would be able to contribute meat, but I go to school at Tarleton in Stephenville and frequently go to Austin to visit on the weekends. I would be more then willing to take things back and forth if possible. Maybe someone could meet me in the area and I can get it to Austin.
