I agree.

Shotgun deer hunters would be a low consumer of Optics, while Rifle hunters would be high. Fur bearer hunters/trappers would be minute...no need for binocs hunting Coons at night, but probably if you're a coyote hunter.

he's right....Economics would have a large impact on equipment...the guy who buys his gear at walmart, might not, and would be lower end, vs the guy who goes to Colorado from North carolina to hunt a private lease ranch, more than likely has high end optics, range finders, expensive camo gear and weapons.

good points jsp.

Congrats on the big 'un. Though I must say, I laugh every time someone talks about "mounting a rack". heheheh...
I know, while I was typing I was giggling. Thanks for the information. Prior to using the kit, do you do anything to the chunk of skull? I had one guy suggest I boil the skull prior to using the kit. Is that necessary?

Thanks to PastorMik I bought a great set of Steiner binocs this year. I had some cheap ones prior and there is a HUGE difference. One note to Pastor, the bino buddy was a little cumbersome for me. It was nice while I was walking to the stand, but once I got on the stand I had to unhook one side. The rubber tubing was a little prohibitive for me.

Be meticulous about cleaning the skull and flesh. Don't cut it too close to the top of the skull or it will break. Some people will either put them outside to dry in the sun, or salt them.

Thanks. When I took the deer to the processing plant I had them cut the horns off for me. Thanks for the tip on salting the skull. That's what I'll do.

I use MuleTeam Borax instead of salt. I took a taxadermy class in HS, and the teacher said that salt could damage the hide, and the fur on the skull might fall off.

Just don't put a cooler full of venison and icewater in the back of your wifes Explorer without tieing it down! I took an exit too fast, spilled a couple gallons of the bloddy water in the back of her Explorer, and even after ripping out all of the carpet it still smells like dead flesh.

If that happened in my wifes car we'd be selling the car. She's not too hip on the whole hunting thing in the first place. She tolerates it and understands my passion for it, but that's about as far as it goes. Thanks for the borax tip, I'll probably skin the hide off the skull anyway, so salt may be the way to go.

Honestly, all I did was use an exacto knife and just trimmed away all the skin I could find. There's not any meat up there anyway, so I just trimmed away all that I could see. Had it up there for over a year now, no problems...

A week and a half later, and the car still smells bad. I have ripped out all of the carpet in the back and under the back seats, but it isn't smooth metal underneath. The "deer juice" got in all of the crevasses, so I poured a 5 gallon bucket of bleach water in the back of the truck, hoping to wash all of the deer juice out. That didn't work either, so I am going to try some ammonia water tonight. Two bottles of febreeze, 5 gallons of bleach water, some evergreen scent cover, and a bag of potporri pinecones can not touch the stench, and we are the only vehical driving down the road in November with the windows down.

I figure that even dead animals quit stinking after a while, so we should only have 1-2 more weeks to deal with it. My wife is from VA Beach, nobody in her family hunts or even owns a gun, and she will not even try to taste venison. She is anti-hunting, anti-anything outdoors that includes being cold or sweating, and is obviosuly anti-deer juice in the apolstry. I drive an Escort, and was able to haul deer to the checkin station in the trunk the last two years with no mess, and was able to transport two coolers off floating deer parts in the trunk and one in the back seat with no mishaps. It sucks that after everything is over the darn cooler tips over in her explorer.

I feel your pain brother. I grew up in Missouri and have hunted on my fathers land for 33 years. I moved to L.A. 15 years ago and married a city girl. We have a 7 year old daughter that I'm trying to instill positive feelings about hunting. I must say my wife is doing her best to not negatively influence my childs feelings. On a positive note, this year my nephew killed a couple of squirrels, he brought them to the house to clean them and my little girl and her two cousins watched the entire cleaning process. One of her cousins kept saying ewww but my kid just said "what's wrong, we have guts inside of us too". She was also facinated by my gutted deer hanging in the tree. I have a sister and neice that hunt which I hope will influence her a well. I'm not gonna push her, just encourage her, but nothing would thrill me more than taking her out hunting with me.

That should be entertaining if you get pulled over by the police.

Would it be terribly rude to indicate that the deerjuice might not be the source of the stench?

Give her Seat a good sniff.
