    Re: Best trophy or achievment while providing for your family

    My ex wife loved and cherished my inventions an things I built for her and my kids. My new wife could care less, I never realized how much another persons approval could affect your creativity. My kids still love it, I am on the hook for some new furniture pieces for them , cause I love em.

    However, I co opted both my sons in law to help me reorganize and arrange my shop before I start, and they can both have a really fine desk for their kids. I will spend a minimum of a week or 2 per and use mostly my harvested lumber . I have a ton of logs laying to be cut, bummer. I have hundreds of bdft in white oak, pecan and spalted hackberry right now dried. This weekend is our catfishing extravaganza, for 10 bucks whoever catches the biggest fish gets a new penn and rod ssurf combo, $80 . I will win heh heh, i'll kill em. I did last yr. Last year we did 400 lbs catfish in a wkend with 6 of us.

    I have killed a lot of hogs , made my own sausage, salt and sugar cure my own hams , midlands and shoulders .Back years ago almost all farmers raised a few hogs . The in November we would kill , scald , scrape hair and trim up hams , shoulders and midlands for salt curing .
    We clean and process our own deer and small game . While there is other hunter who use a packing house to process their deer kill . I prefer to get back my own deer meat . I have heard it costing around $100 for hunters to get a deer processed . . It cost me nothing more that the bags or wrap to wrap my meat in . We have our own grinder and know what we grind into our meat . I also make my own deer jerky with my grandson learning how to do this and where food comes from .

    Now there is a lot of nasty hunters who kill and dump their kill along side of roads here, they are too lazy to clean what they killed and are killing for the fun or trophy .
    With my family we eat what we kill unless it is a coyote

    This year our deer herd was hit extremely hard with Epizootic hemorrhagic disease . It has taking a big toll on our deer population . People was finding dead deer all over the state of KY .

    By the way Eggs are my favorite food , We sometimes eat breakfast food at suppertime .
    I smoked my bacon today. I am buying pork bellys and curing my own bacon.. I am smoking it with pecan.
    I killed a chickem snake today with 2 wooden eggs heh heh ,it was history any way
