    I’m gonna try to get 10 in freezer this year. I normally do a couple for burger a couple for summer sausage and a couple for jerky. Then I make roast out of the rest. I keep tenderloins and backstrap outta all of them. I have reached 9 one year and ate all of them by August. So 10 is my goal.

    My daughter will eat a little, but my wife doesn't care for it at all. I usually just put one in the freezer, but will probably put two, maybe three in this year.

    I’d say several will get more deer meat. Do y’all think people will wanna slaughter more beef like buying one from someone else if they don’t own cattle? As far as beef prices I don’t think they will go high for a little while. I do think they will go higher but will take some time. Right now gold and silver prices are moving up. I think crude oil and beef will make their move next year prolly grains as well. I can’t see anyway around inflation because of all the money that is being printed and the relief bills. The more money that is floating around then prices go up. Just supply and demand.

    I’ve given almost all my meat away this year to people that really wanted/needed it during the pandemic. Also ate a lot. Told the wife we will start fresh this year. She doesn’t eat it much and I can’t get enough. So hoping for 3. We will see though

    That’s putting it away! I killed two last year, feel like we eat deer fairly often, and I still got quite a bit left. My brother usually has all of his ate by May-June and lives alone and he usually kills 2-3 so if you got a big family I can see it.

    Bought a new freezer last fall. Always had chests, bought a big Whirlpool upright and love it. Can see and get to all the meat easily, adjust shelves, good lighting...wish I’d done it years ago!

    My mother just got a freezer about a month ago. She had a hard time finding one. Stores told her they are selling as quick as they get them. I raise cattle and people are asking about buying. The hard part is finding a processor that’s able to do them. Most are booked up from what I’m hearing.

    2 does, 1 buck, 1 fawn, and mostly just me eating the meat, and not eating it as often as I want, and I'm just seeing the bottom of the freezer this week. This year the goal is at least four full-size, and with crop damage permits, I should be able to get to work on that starting next week. But with working basically two FT jobs, I won't get to hunt much till December. Might be tough.
