Title: Does This Count?
Post by: bohicajuan on September 28, 2009, 10:13:52 PM
Got a call from a buddy on Friday who asked if I'd pick up the doe he'd shot at the processor he took it to near our club.

My friend asked if I could keep it in my freezer, since he'd lost power to his house following the storms we've had here.

Actually his house rode out the storm without any problem, but when they sent in the cleanup crews they accidently severed his power lines. He wasn't sure when he'd get his power restored.

I said sure and just like last week it rained like I've never seen it before. Little creeks that are dry 10 month's out of the year looked like the Amazon during high water month's

What was worse, it was so heavy and loud, that Saber squadron from 3rd ACR could have been 20 meters away and I'd have never known it.

To put it simply it was a bust.

Eventhough our clubhouse is less than a quarter mile from the road, with all the rain and traffic I was afraid my little ranger would get stuck. There were ruts in the road that you could stock with bass the water was so deep.

So....

About three o'clock Saturday, after swimming back to my truck I went on home, but first stopped to pick up my friend's deer.

Needless to say the deer processor was not very busy and said his business was down by a butt load because of the rain and folk's staying home.

I took the deer home and put it in a very large heavy gauge plastic bag so when my friend came to pick it up it would be an easier haul.

Since I actually PLACED the deer in the bag......

Doesn't that qualify me as having.....

BAGGED A DEER?

Technically, yes.

You are going to charge your buddy a "storage fee" aren't you?  :wink:  I don't think he'll mind giving up a couple of packages of backstrap for you storing the stuff.  O0

Who knows, eating the deer might actually make it register in your brain exactly "why" you're out there this year. :wink: ;D  Of course, it couldn't hurt anything either.  :)

Go ahead and let him claim it BC, it doesn't look like he will be able to claim much else with his luck!! ;D ;D ;D

My thoughts exactly.  I'm not much better off though...I'm gonna have to find a dead one on the side of the road to take pics of. :-\

If I cut a picture out of a hunting magazine and sent it in would that count????

Even if I got Kris Winkelman wearing a**less chaps in it? :D :D :D ;D

I concur, such imagination should carry some merit towards a favorbale decision.  :wink: ;D

;D ;D ;D Trust me, that can easily be arranged if you want to drive to SE Iowa to pick up the roadkill.  :twisted: ;D Ford bullets never fail. A few deer require a finishing pistol shot, which adds a hint of sport to it.  :twisted:
The only drawback is having to clean my weapon afterwards and fill out the accident report for the Army.  :roll: ;D But it's no big deal, I get lots of practice of doing both, according to some of my bosses.

One old crusty Captain told me, "You SOB, you drive around with your mouth watering"!  ;D

I think that would definitely be worth some points. O0
